Heart of Iowa Habitat for Humanity is extending a helping hand to existing homeowners by offering home repair services across Boone County in 2019. If you or someone you know could use some help with repairs such as a new roof, scrape and paint, new windows or doors, landscape renewal, or most anything on the outside of the house, the Helping Hands program could be a great solution. If internal home repairs are needed, Habitat has resources available for that, too. Contact Habitat for Humanity for details at 515-432-1168, email, or stop in the office at 720 Story Street in Boone. There will be some exciting transformations when Habitat’s Helping Hands are on the job in 2019
