What programs in the Wilmington area help low-income people fix up their homes?

New Hanover County Director of Social Services LaVaughn Nesmith says a good place to start is the Wilmington Area Rebuilding Ministry program.

WARM, Inc., is a non-profit organization.

“Our home repair program enables elderly, disabled and other vulnerable homeowners to live safely and independently in their own homes,” writes WARM Executive Director Jeannie Cariker Skane on the organization’s website, www.warmnc.org

Sixty home repair projects were completed by WARM volunteers in 2009.

“We are beginning to see the long-term impacts of this work: preserving affordable housing, helping prevent homelessness, reducing strain on adult living facilities, empowering volunteers and improving neighborhood property values,” Skane writes.

WARM’s telephone number is (910) 399-7563.
