There are several agencies that offer assistance to low income families, seniors and anyone with disabilities.
There are forms to fill out in every case and if you qualify someone will contact you and gather further information. If you then qualify they will probably place you on a list and usually these lists are broken down into several other 'lists' - such as emergency repairs, dangerous situations, unsafe for children, etc. If regular roof repairs (leaking) are what you need then you may be placed on the longest list. Sometimes these repairs may not happen for many months or even into the next budget year. Roof repairs are usually one of the most expensive home repairs and requires permits and only qualified workers so do not expect this help to happen quickly.


All I'm saying is you may qualify for help but it may not be done immediately.

This question get asked a lot on this site so please read some of the answers to others and maybe you'll find a place to ask for help.

I would suggest you contact Habitat for Humanity in your area as they may be able to offer help and maybe faster than some other agencies.

You may have local agencies that will help and they may also be faster than most regular government agencies.
Use Google : Family Services free roof repair low income with your zip code. Several agencies should be available for you to contact.

Here are some other places to research to see if you qualify.

It would be helpful if you posted where you live. All areas have either charities or non profit centres that help folks with this sort of thing.


Places to check are
- Habitat for Humanity
- local food bank
- churches
-Lion's clubs

you can go to their websites and see what other public assistance/community/charity programs they are affiliated with. If nothign obvious shows up, you can call and speak to someone there who can point you in the right direction

There are quite a few programs out there that offer you grants or assistance to help fix the roof on your home if you are low income. You still need to apply for these programs and they do take a lot of time to get approved and the funds arrive. If you are in desperate need now I would go to Facebook and try to lauch a good fund me account. You can also talk with members of your church community and ask for help from your local social assistance offices in your area.


Here are some links to sites that can help you out.

I don't know your situation but here they have programs for weatherization through a place called WADI also known as LIHEAP. Or look on Angies list. That is all I know.
