Home Maintenance Classes

A great resource for homeowners - Project Home's home maintenance classes are free and open to the public. Our goal is to provide you with information about maintaining your home, answer your questions and help you be more informed when hiring a contractor.  Classes are taught by Project Home staff and other industry professionals.

In 2018, we are expanding the classes to more area public libraries!  See the new class schedule below and check our website for updates.

Madison Gas and Electric sponsors the education classes, which helps keep them FREE for you!
