The Habitat Handyman service was launched in 2016 as a pilot program with support from The County of Lambton and with the expressed purpose of providing low-cost home improvement services exclusively to low income homeowners. The pilot outcomes were very positive and Habitat Sarnia/Lambton has received a second year of funding from the County for 2017.
However, in 2017, Habitat Sarnia/Lambton has opened the service up to all homeowners in Sarnia and Lambton County. While Habitat will continue to serve low-income families as a priority under the 2016 pricing structure, a new pricing stream has been identified for all other homeowners.
A printable version of our application form is available here. Please submit completed forms online or to the Habitat Handyman directly by dropping it off at our ReStore at 1787 London Line in Sarnia.
