Home Repair/Rehabilitation Program

This program involves the repair and rehabilitation of homes locally and throughout the nation (at times of disaster relief) with the assistance of volunteer labor, community involvement, and local business support. Free of charge, we provide necessary exterior and/or interior repairs to aging and deteriorating homes owned and occupied by low and very-low income households.  These homes are single family residences. Hosanna Industries’ overall program involves more than just repairing homes, as we strive to show each client homeowner that they are loved and worth helping. We want to bring hope, help and healing to the neighborhoods in which we serve. We are committed to serving both those families in need and our volunteers; providing an opportunity for renewed hope for everyone involved in the project in every capacity; and to promote true “community” by neighbor helping neighbor.

Population(s) Served
Aging, elderly, senior citizens
Families

This program involves the construction of new homes for very-low and low income families. These homes are single family residences, typically with three bedrooms. Single story structures are common in rural areas while two story designs are more common in urban sites. This is a volunteer intensive program consisting of one or more homes being fully constructed in five days or less. Labor costs are donated and the family secures a mortgage for materials only.  

 Each new home costs approximately $50,000 to build, including both material and labor costs.

Population(s) Served

Adults
Budget

Individuals from all over the world have come to give of their time to help the needy families we serve at Hosanna Industries. The mission does not discriminate against age, skill level, race or creed in order that anyone who has a willing heart may be used to serve the needs of low and very-low income families. Hosanna Industries maintains a large, two-story dormitory on its property in order to host such willing volunteers. Volunteerism is an essential part of all the other programs that operate at Hosanna Industries.

Population(s) Served
Adults
Adolescents (13-19 years)

At times of natural disaster, Hosanna Industries has come to the aid of victims suffering from irreparable housing crises.  The mission is noted for its ability to mobilize and lead vast numbers of volunteers to accomplish the most amount of work in a short period of time.  Past disaster work includes Joplin following the tornado, Haiti following the earthquake, Southwestern PA following Hurricane Ivan, Gulfport and New Orleans following Hurricane Katrina, North Carolina following Hurricane Floyd, Florida following Hurricane Andrew, and Missouri following the Mississippi flood of 1996.

Five powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

What is the organization aiming to accomplish?

Goals for 2016:<br/><br/>Complete local rehabilitation projects as funding permits, hopefully as many as 150 households helped,<br/>Construct a new home for a needy family,<br/>Lead individuals for more than 2500 volunteer work days,<br/>Begin offering nature, art and other human development classes on our new campus in Gibsonia, PA with proceeds from these programs used to support our charitable construction programs.

We believe that a high degree of organization, effective communication, wise decision-making, hard work and diligence will allow us to complete our goals for 2016.

Our greatest resource is our staff of mission workers. With an average of more than 15 years at the mission, our staff is expert in the charitable construction field. They have dedicated their lives to helping the needy and have an amazing level of commitment to our mission.

We monitor the number of households helped, the number of volunteers utilized, and the market value of the construction work we do. We strive to turn every dollar utilized in our charitable construction program into three dollars of market value work.

Although we have served over 3200 households in our 26 year history, we have not been able to eliminate the need for charitable home construction and repairs in our area. There is still tremendous need for affordable housing.
