For many years, the Regional Housing Services Office has worked alongside Habitat to provide housing for individuals and families in need.

One of the major programs run by Habitat is the Critical Home Repair Program (CHR). The RHSO and Elizabeth Rust have actively volunteered with this program for the communities in their local area. The program is designed to help low-income homeowners who are having trouble properly maintaining their homes due to age, disability, family circumstances, or other related issues.
