Renovation Support Service aims to improve the living conditions of low-income families and individuals. Habitat will help identify what the housing issues are and plan how to solve the problems with volunteers who have technical experience (engineering, construction and design background).
Age-friendly Housing Project aims to provide safe living conditions for growing elderly communities in regions such as Shanghai and Guangdong. HFH China renovates homes for low-income seniors with a focus on improving safety conditions by installing grab bars, anti-slip flooring and ensuring barrier-free access in addition to any other urgently needed repairs.
Rural Reconstruction aims to provide safe, decent homes with proper sanitation facilities for low-income rural families in China. In an effort to provide a hand up and not a hand out, most Habitat partner families are provided with a no-interest, affordable loan to cover their construction costs. As partner families repay their loan, these funds will be used to build more houses for families in need of safe, decent homes in China.
House Renovation Project for the Disabled helps low-income families with disabled members by providing necessary disabled-friendly facilities alongside house repairs. For instance, in Yangshuo, HFH China focuses on supporting the disabled in financial difficulties by providing disabled-friendly housing reconstruction or renovation, so as to improve their safety and living conditions.
Disaster Recovery contributes technical expertise in home building and sustainable shelter construction in disaster-prone areas such as Sichuan and Yunnan. Houses are all built using the government’s quality standard for earthquake-resistant housing and designs.
In an effort to generate income for disaster-affected families who lost their farmland because of the disaster, houses were constructed with the idea of livelihood in mind. In Taizi and Yangping villages in Sichuan, houses were built as bed and breakfasts (B&B) to accommodate tourists who visit the area. The houses in Luoyang and Changzhen villages were constructed so that the families would have space for a small business on the ground floor while living comfortably above.
Global Village trips are short-term build trips to HFH China project sites which offer valuable educational experiences in a cross-cultural environment. Provinces such as Sichuan and Yunnan are increasingly popular destinations for locally-based and overseas Habitat volunteer teams.
