We consider a healthy neighborhood to be one that is safe, clean, and diverse; one in which it makes economic sense for people to invest and one where neighbors manage change successfully.

Roof Repair Program

2022-03-22-GRW-RoofRepairBlog

Shelter is a basic human need that can be a struggle to hold onto. With the average roof repair costing $4,500, many homeowners in Waco find themselves unable to repair their leaky roofs. Over time, even what might start out as a small leak can end up causing a lot of damage and destroying the entire home.

Our roof repair program, in partnership with the City of Waco, is one way we help with this. Once a year, we have open enrollment for roof repair applications and then work to provide new roofs for those applicants that qualify and are selected. By replacing roofs, we help to repair and protect older houses in Waco from further damage and most importantly keep people in their homes.

We are currently in the evaluation stage of our roof applications for 2022 and will begin replacing roofs in the weeks to come. If you would like more information about our roof repair program or want to learn more about Grassroots, please click here.
