Over 15 homes preserved.


How we work

housing education

We offer housing education workshops focused on basic home maintenance, money management, and on-the-job training opportunities. 


housing maintenance check-ups

We teach you how the systems in your house work and how to plan for future repairs. The home maintenance check-up is a post-purchase home inspection service that will help you identify priority repair items, plan for routine maintenance, and connect you with relevant resources.


Housing repair

The Rebuilding on a Firm Foundation Housing Repair Program will make minor home improvements available to homeowners of a single family, real property or mobile homes within Muskegon County. Homeowners must occupy the property as their primary residence and have a household income that does not exceed 80% of Muskegon County’s area median income.

Open Enrollment for 2019 is now closed. Please check back later for next year’s information.

Tool library

Our library, launching later in 2019, will operate essentially like any library, except you can check out tools instead of books. Our goal is, in short, to build community. The library will help to create a sense of neighborhood community and resource general improvements to the community’s homes and properties.

Upon paying a small membership fee, you can check out tools for one week, and then just return them to the library.

We operate three retail stores and donation centers that offer new and used home improvement goods at a fraction of the retail price. These locations are locally owned with proceeds going toward the preservation of homes in Muskegon County.
