Nonprofit Offers DIY & Assisted Home Repair Services

I’ve recently learned about an organization called Home Repair Services, which exists to strengthen Kent county communities and homeowners. I just wrote a blog post about this nonprofit, but I wanted focus RIGHT NOW on the classes they are offering starting in March!

They are FREE and open to the public! You don’t even need to RSVP. Just walk in. Classes are located at 1100 South Division Avenue, Grand Rapids, Michigan 49507.

Money Matters Classes start Wednesday, March 1, at 6:30 p.m. Class topics include: Making Your Cash Work for You; Managing Credit, Foreclosure 101; Home Insurance & 21 Day Financial Challenge. (The classes are offered in Spanish as well at a different time)

Fix-it-School DIY Classes take place 10 a.m. to noon every Saturday. These classes (called Rookie Renovators) are so cool! Topics include: Ceramic/stone/glass tile installation; cabinet installation; flooring; electrical; drywall and plaster; landscaping; home maintenance; window installation and plumbing. (There is also a women-only plumbing class.)
