Home Repair Assistance

Lakes & Prairies and West Central Minnesota Communities Actions are teaming up with Group Cares to help improve homes within 30 miles of Breckenridge, Minnesota July 22-28, 2018. We are reaching out to elderly, disabled, single parents and income eligible residents. We are excited to transform homes; creating better living conditions for the families we serve! Hundreds of youth from across America will come together for six days to repair and transform homes while strengthening and transforming their own faith.

Each home site will consist of 4-5 senior high youth and at least one adult leader. Site writers will visit your home prior to the Group Cares Camp and help with identifying repairs and materials needed for your specific project. Eligible households must be within 30 miles driving distance of Breckenridge, MN (Homes must be located in MN). Eligible repairs are “basic” home repair and are listed in the application.

Both labor and materials will be free to qualifying households. Work will be done by youth volunteers. Households receiving assistance must agree to provide water, electricity for tools, a restroom for the volunteers as well as providing an adult in the home the week of the repairs.

You will be contacted in the spring 2018 about the status of your application. At no time, can we guarantee that work will be completed on your home. Please complete the following questions and return your application to the following address:

Please fill out the application and mail to the address below or return via fax or e-mail.
