Safe at Home
The Safe at Home Repair Program helps seniors, families, and people with disabilities live more independently by addressing minor repair needs before they become serious safety or deferred maintenance issues. We welcome applications year-round from neighbors interested in improving the health and safety of their home and volunteers year-round with handy skills who want to serve the community.
We tackle repairs such as debris removal, fence repair, basic home maintenance, exterior painting, light yard work, minor plumbing, minor electrical, heating repair, roof repair, window repair/replacement, door repair/replacement, energy efficiency measures, and some accessibility modifications.
