HRRC announces May programs and event

The Home Repair Resource Center (HRRC) is all set for an exciting spring and summer, with a number of new classes planned for the warm weather.

In early May, HRRC will launch its first-ever Women’s Home How-To series dedicated to the outside of the home. The Exteriors and Landscapes series of classes will give women a chance to experience hands-on learning about concrete and sidewalks, brick and masonry, exterior painting, yard maintenance and more.

HRRC will also offer an early-May class on tuck-pointing, doors and locks that will be open to all.

Two classes on windows, with HRRC partner-city Shaker Heights, will likewise be open to all. Visit to see HRRC’s continually expanding list of classes.

With the return of warm weather, HRRC’s tool library is a source of specialty and common tools—nearly 1,000, and growing—needed for DIY projects. The tool library is available to residents of Cleveland Heights and Shaker Heights, and to anyone who takes a HRRC home repair class or series.

Speaking of tools, don’t miss out on the annual HRRC Tool Sale, held in conjunction with the Noble Neighbors' We Are Noble event.

HRRC invites people from all communities to visit its Teaching Center at 2520 Noble Road on Saturday, May 20, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., to learn about HRRC services, get a tool library membership, and check out HRRC’s contractor evaluation books to identify professionals who do good work.

Supporters of HRRC have donated a variety of tools and materials for sale during the event, with all proceeds benefitting HRRC programs.
