Economic Security Corporation of Southwest Area

Home Repair

Single-Family Home Repair Program:

Economic Security Corporation has two rehabilitation programs that serve homeowners.  The Home Repair Opportunity Program (HeRO) is sponsored by the Missouri Housing Development Commission serving homeowners in Barton, Jasper, Newton and McDonald Counties.  The Joplin Consortium HOME Repair Program (HOME) is sponsored by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development Department serving the homeowners within the City limits of Joplin.

A major concern of low to moderate income homeowners is keeping up with necessary but costly repairs.  This is particularly true of older homes with weathered roofs, worn siding, outdated plumbing, heating/cooling systems, drafty windows, or outdated electrical wiring.
