Northeast Texas Habitat builds and sells homes in partnership with hard-working, low-income families who are willing to work hard to become homeowners.  In addition, Habitat works with existing low-income elderly, disabled or veteran homeowners in Gregg, Harrison and Upshur County neighborhoods to do critical home repairs so that they can continue to live in safe and affordable homes.

ReStore

Habitat for Humanity ReStores are nonprofit home improvement stores and donation centers that sell new and gently used furniture, home accessories, building materials, and appliances to the public at a fraction of the retail price. Habitat for Humanity ReStores are proudly owned and operated by local Habitat for Humanity affiliates, and proceeds are used to build homes, community, and hope locally and around the world.

Northeast Texas Habitat is helping people stay cooler and healthier at home this summer. The Beat the Heat program provides delivery and installation of a window air conditioning unit and fans in lower-income households that do not have functioning cooling systems.  

 

Persons over age 60, individuals with chronic illness worsened by heat, households with children under age four and military veterans that have no cooling systems in their homes are encouraged to contact Family Services  903-236-0900 ext.204 to get more information.  Recipients are required to complete a brief application and pay a $20 partner cost share.  Habitat delivers and installs the unit and provides educational information on recognizing heat-related illness, unit maintenance, and tips to stay cool.

 

“Each year we hear the tragic stories of persons falling critically ill or dying from the extreme heat in Texas. We do not want any of our neighbors to become a heat illness statistic. According to the CDC, people over age 65, children under age four and individuals with certain medical conditions are especially prone to heat-related illness,” said LaJuan Hollis-Gordon, Executive Director.  “Beat the Heat is designed to help those that are most susceptible avoid heat emergencies. Healthier, safer communities start with healthy residents.  And, helping our neighbors stay healthier in their homes is a  primary aspect of the Habitat mission. ” she said.

 

The program begins on June 1 and is available until funds are exhausted. To apply call Habitat Family Services at 903-236-0900 ext. 204 or visit the Habitat office located at 905 McCann Road, Longview Monday – Friday 9am-5pm.
