Home Repair Services and Calder Capital

Recently, the Calder team donated time to the Home Repair Services of Kent County's Cabinet Shop.


Home Repair Services of Kent County is a non-profit organization local to Calder Capital’s headquarters. Their mission is to strengthen vulnerable Kent County homeowners because strong homeowners build strong communities. They do this by offering discounted repair services and construction projects, DIY learning opportunities, and home inspections. 

The organization is near and dear to the hearts of many Calder staff, including Scott Nicholson who introduced the organization to Calder Capital. Scott was an HRS board member for 6 years and regularly brings staff and clients to HRS Lunch and Learn Tours.


On November 9th, Calder’s volunteers built kitchen cabinets, which are sold at a discount to low-income Kent County residents. The associated proceeds are then reinvested into furthering HRS’s community outreach. Over 35,000 Kent County homeowners have benefited from the work of HRS since 1979.


Thank you to Joel Ruiter, Clarence Joldersma, and Mike Zamarron for coordinating, hosting, and showing our team the ropes!
