[ARCHIVED] Neighborhood Services needs team leaders for Extreme Home Repair Blitz in Hampton, Newport New

Home Repair Blitz

Aug. 31, 2019 - The Housing and Neighborhood Services Division is looking for skilled team leaders to help with the upcoming Extreme Home Repair Blitz, a joint effort with Newport News that will include Wythe and surrounding areas on Saturday, Sept. 28.

The Extreme Home Repair Blitz will help the elderly, veterans, disabled, and low-income residents make repairs to the outside of their homes, including painting, window repairs, power washing, outdoor clean-up and more. All labor and materials will be provided by community sponsors and volunteers for free or a minimal fee. 

Team leaders are men and women who are skilled in carpentry, general construction and home repair, willing to spend 5-6 hours preparing for the Blitz and a day on the Blitz itself.

The Home Repair Blitz takes place twice a year. It is sponsored by the city, Habitat for Humanity and the Hampton Redevelopment and Housing Authority, with support from various community groups and organizations. For more information, visit the city website at or the Habitat for Humanity website at
