What is Realtors® Care Day?
Realtors® Care Day is an all-day home-repair project to help those who have critical home maintenance needs. Area Realtors® put down their smartphones and pick up toolboxes to help provide area homeowners a safer, cleaner and more stable home in which to live. Since 2009, thousands of Realtor® volunteers have helped repair 271 homes and non-profits in Mecklenburg and Iredell counties. Learn more.
In 2019, the Canopy Housing Foundation worked in a closer capacity with the area Habitat organizations to identify homeowners in need. This allowed us to work in partnership with the Habitat organizations to alleviate some of the tremendous client needs that exist. As a result, we did not accept homeowner applications from the general community. If you feel that your home has critical repair needs, we urge you to contact a Habitat near you to express your interest in their Critical Home Repair Program. Direct information on how to contact those organizations about their Critical Home Repair Program can be accessed through the links below:
- Greater Matthews Habitat for Humanity
- Habitat for Humanity of Charlotte
- Our Towns Habitat for Humanity (serves Mecklenburg and Iredell counties)
How you can help
Every day, Realtors® make the American Dream a reality, and each year in April we come together to help sustain that dream for those who need our help. As housing industry professionals we are keenly aware that many in our community lack the physical ability and/or financial resources to maintain their homes, resulting in an unsafe living situation.
There are also numerous opportunities to support Realtors® Care Day through sponsorship, contributions and donations. Donate online to the project throughout the year!
We are making a lasting difference in our community. Get involved and join us for our next Realtors® Care Day!
