Hispanic Roundtable, Inc.
The Hispanic Roundtable has created a subcommittee called Community Restoration Fund. It’s mission is to strengthen the community based on a servant mentality. To create a network of professionals allied in partnership to collaborate instead of compete, to share resources, benefits and profits. Working in tandem to provide a safe and habitable environment for low income homeowners who have exhausted all other possible resources. This would create a fund that would be available for people in dire need of home repair.

Approximately 20% of Racine County residents would qualify for assistance from the Hispanic Roundtable CRF.
Low income Hispanic homeowners – mostly families who need emergency home repair. More than 3/4 of the households we would serve have children and only one person working in most cases.
CRF will provide assistance based on income and also degree of emergency help needed. Each home will be evaluated upon receiving a request for help. Once the need has been established, the family would then be contacted by a designated contractor who has been preselected by Hispanic Roundtable and / or members of said organization. Repairs would then be made by the licensed, insured and bonded contractor.
