Why does Spectrum Focus on Critical Home Repairs?
As a member of your community, Spectrum wants to ensure that our neighbors live in safe and healthy homes. So in late 2014, we launched Spectrum Housing Assist to provide critical home repairs, in response to the many low-income homeowners living in deteriorating homes.

What Happens at a Home Rebuild?
At a home rebuild our Spectrum employees volunteer to make critical home repairs. These repairs include the following: building wheelchair ramps, repairing walkways, painting, installing grab bars, repairing flooring, clearing yard debris and more. Read about a volunteer’s experience at a rebuild.
What Happens at a Smoke Alarm Install?
Our employee volunteers work with the American Red Cross Home Fire Campaign to install free smoke alarms, replace batteries in existing alarms, help residents create escape plans and provide additional home fire safety education. Read a personal story about the importance of these events, here.
Safe & Healthy Home Kit Events
We distribute Safe & Healthy Home Kits with leading national nonprofit, Rebuilding Together, in the communities we serve. Each kit contains easy to install products to help homeowners maintain safe and healthy homes, including a smoke alarm, first-aid kit, LED nightlights, and weatherstripping.
