Westminster Home Connection, a nonprofit construction agency, serves older adults and persons with disabilities whose homes have become unsafe places to live, due to issues of function or mobility. Our low-cost improvements give homeowners a way to remain in the home they love and in the communities where they’ve built their lives.
Our work preserves affordable housing. Over 50% of existing housing units in middle Tennessee are single unit homes lived in by the homeowner. Preserving these homes is key to affordable housing. Westminster repairs several hundred houses a year, making them safer, more functional, and more likely to be preserved.
Our clients on average are 71 years old with a median monthly household income of less than $2,000. Two-thirds are female and 55% are persons of color.
Solve a crisis with us: As home prices and construction costs continue to soar, Middle Tennessee will never be able to build its way out of the affordable housing crisis. The Westminster Home Connection model preserves the affordability of existing homes at a nominal cost by ensuring they’re livable for the current homeowners.
Give relief with us: We give clients a path to age in place safely and with dignity.
Serving Middle Tennesseans in seven counties, our construction teams resolve safety, mobility, and functionality issues, including step-in bathtubs, wheelchair ramps, electrical issues, and leaky pipes, that might otherwise cause homeowners to be forced to leave their homes.
Make an impact with us: We provide a replicable service model to interested partners.
Every community has members in need of critical home repairs and mobility modifications. Let us help you help them. Our model allows for service offerings to be expanded over time as the capacity and skill of your team increases, eventually including a comprehensive home assessment process to prioritize repair needs.
