Renewing Homes of Greater AugustaRenewing Homes Greater Augusta is an all volunteer organization functioning in the Staunton, Augusta County and Waynesboro region. Our mission is to accomplish, at no cost to the homeowner, critical home repairs and modifications for elderly, disadvantaged and disabled homeowners of Staunton, Waynesboro and Augusta County so that they can live in their own home with dignity in a safe, warm, dry and accessible environment. We provide our services for low income, elderly, disabled or disadvantaged homeowners in Staunton, Waynesboro and Augusta County. Unfortunately the number of these persons and families increases each year. We provide our assistance to as many of these as our donated funds and volunteer labor permits us to. In recent years we have been able to provide help to 35-40 homeowners each year. With increased donations and volunteers we can do more. Typical jobs include roof replacement, wheelchair ramps, accessibility modifications and general repairs. View More
