Residential Repair Program

The Residential Repair program provides household maintenance assistance to residents age 60 and over who are homeowners, condominium owners, or apartment renters. The service provides assistance with minor home repairs that do not require the skills of a licensed craftsperson. There is no charge for this service, however, client must purchase any materials required. When work is completed, client is given the opportunity to make a voluntary contribution to the program.
