Since the Flood of 2008, Matthew 25 has worked to rebuild and redevelop flood-impacted neighborhoods through a variety of programs, such as the Block by Block program, which restored nearly 300 homes. Today, Matthew 25 offers a virtual “toolbox for neighborhood building.”
Home Energy Audits & Weatherizations
Matthew 25 hosts the Cedar Rapids site for Green Iowa AmeriCorps. Find out how Green Iowa AmeriCorps can help you reduce your heating and cooling costs and make your house more comfortable through a home energy audit and weatherization. Weatherization makes your home more energy-efficient by doing things like sealing air leaks and adding insulation.
Rent or Buy a Home
November 2017 we completed and sold a full remodel of a beautiful 3/1 home on the SE side. This house was completely transformed with custom cabinets, beautifully restored original woodwork and floors.
Home Repair Assistance
Protect and improve the investment you made in your home. If you live in the Taylor or Northwest area neighborhoods, you may be eligible for home repairs through Matthew 25’s Homeowner Assistance Program. To apply, download and submit a Housing Rehabilitation Application [PDF].
Each year, community volunteers come together for a week of home repair and improvement projects during Transform Week. Learn more about Transform projects and volunteer needs.
