The first step is to call WARM at 910.399.7563 to discuss your qualifications. The homeowner completes an application (downloadable here or at bottom of page) and submits the application with the required documentation.

Before applying, please make sure you meet these

4 basic requirements: 

  1. Applicant must own and occupy the home in need of repairs.

  2. Home must be located in Brunswick, New Hanover, Pender, Duplin or Onslow County. 

  3. Total household income must fall at or below 50% of their county’s median income. (Once income verification is submitted, WARM staff will compare against HUD data)

  4. Repairs requested must address threats to safety, accessibility, or health AND/OR be hurricane-related 

Please note that meeting these basic requirements does not guarantee the request will be granted. Our personnel will review every application and visit the home to determine if the rebuild falls within the scope of WARM’s mission and capabilities.
Due to limited resources, we cannot help everyone who is eligible.


Once the homeowner and rebuild are approved, the rebuild will be scheduled based on priority and availability of resources. Roof repairs are contracted out, but almost all other work will be completed by volunteers from our community or beyond. Licensed professionals will be contracted according to building codes.
