Aging in Place

This program is available to individuals living in Shawnee County, age 60 or older, living at or below 60% of the average median income. Applicants must be the owner of the home and currently residing in the home.

Often, due to limited budgets and physical restrictions, aging adults are unable to make basic repairs on their homes. By addressing these basic repairs often and early, we hope to reduce the need for critical repairs and assist the aging population in the ability to live autonomously and with dignity in their homes without environmental concerns, or structural risks.

 

Our partnership with the Shawnee County Advocacy Council on Aging, business partners and community donors makes it possible for us to offer our Aging in Place services. To apply for this program please call 785-234-4322. 

Accessibility Modifications

In partnership with the Topeka Independent Living Resource Center (TILRC), Topeka Habitat offers an affordable accessibility modification program through the Topeka Habitat ReStore. In addition, Topeka Habitat can assist with accessibility modification projects for individuals who own their home and can connect individuals to additional community resources. Making accessibility modifications to a home can be a daunting and expensive task. Topeka Habitat is dedicated to ensuring safe and decent housing for all members of our community.

 

This program is managed on a case-by-case and is dependent on funding. Please call (785) 234-4322 for more information.

Rock the Block

A Topeka Habitat for Humanity Rock the Block™ event involves dozens of volunteers concentrating on homes in strategic neighborhoods, making improvements and repairs. The transformation of the neighborhood is impressive and more than just curb appeal improved. Rock The Block helps restore pride in home ownership and strengthen neighborhood connections.
