Home Repairs Ministries (HRM) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation.
Our Vision is:
Repairing Homes and Hearts as Churches Serve Together.
Our Mission is:
To serve vulnerable homeowners (typically widows, single mothers, the elderly and people with mobility challenges) with critical home repairs and accessibility updates that they cannot complete themselves or afford to hire contractors to do.
HRM also encourages and coaches churches in starting teams to serve their own congregations and the community.
The history of HRM
HRM began in 2002 as a local Atlanta-area church ministry, as a part of its community outreach. As the community outreach developed, a larger vision to unite churches for greater impact on the community was embraced by local churches.
By 2007, needs began to come to HRM from non-profits and local support agencies. By 2008, we helped other churches start ministries and became a network "hub" to connect needs, resources, and teams. Together we believe we can serve and reach many more with God's love. We ultimately seek to bring glory to Jesus Christ by meeting real physical and spiritual needs in our communities.
In 2014, HRM completed 160 projects with participants from 21 churches and served 10 nonprofits/community service agencies. We also launched a new Hub (service area) serving Urban Atlanta and the surrounding communities. For years, we have been getting calls from low-income homeowners needing repairs, in this region, and now we have the infrastructure to help them!
