RAMPS & MINOR REPAIRS
Many disabled homeowners find themselves in need of a ramp, rails, or minor home repairs, yet do not have the resources necessary to make the improvements due to being on a low, fixed income.
AIM coordinates with several area church groups, civic organizations, and clubs to build ramps or make minor repairs to qualified applicants. We match clients in need with the resources and labor needed to make these improvements, which will enable them to remain self-sufficient.
EMERGENCY AND OWNER-OCCUPIED REPAIRS
AIM's repair programs assist low-income homeowners by addressing safety hazards to their homes not covered by insurance that would cause further damage if not immediately repaired. AIM uses South Carolina Housing Trust Fund* grants to complete these repairs. Funding assistance is provided to repair single-family, owner-occupied homes with eligible housing deficiencies.
