Every Connection

Creates The Opportunity To Build A Better Life

Brush Up

The Golden Crescent Habitat’s neighborhood revitalization program – BRUSH UP GOLDEN CRESCENT -helps preserve home ownership by partnering with homeowners struggling to maintain their home.

When basic expenses exceed income month after month, home maintenance is the usual casualty. Years of deferred maintenance can cause a downward spiral of home deterioration and unsafe living conditions. By making minor repairs to houses, homeowners are able to continue to safely live in their homes.

Since 2016, Golden Crescent Habitat has repaired 31 homes in Victoria and Lavaca counties.
