Project Repair is a program of Home Repair Resource Center. It offers many services that can help homeowners complete home repairs, whether do-self or contracted, and promotes sustainable home renovation wherever possible.
Our repair classes & workshops are available to residents of all communities, regardless of income. Three types of sessions are offered:
- HouseMender University (HMU) presentations are informational presentations on topics such as material options, how a repair should be done, contracting various types of repairs, and reducing energy use. HMU presentations are free and held throughout the region.
- Repair classes give attendees an opportunity to get in-depth information from a professional, ask questions about their specific situation, and see demonstrations of new products, tools, and techniques.
- “Hands-on” repair workshops provide a chance for participants to learn and practice repair skills under the supervision of an instructor. Class size is kept small to maximize learning.
Attendees at our classes and workshops pay a modest materials fee: $10 for Cleveland Heights residents and $15 for non-residents. (Scholarships are available to Cleveland Heights residents with low incomes.) Fees may be paid by cash or check.
Classes are held year-round, and most are held in our Teaching Center at 2520 Noble Road in Cleveland Heights. Spaces are limited, and reservations are a must! To reserve a spot , call (216) 381-6100, ext. 16, or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include a daytime phone number so that we can contact you to finalize your reservation.
