Types of Repairs
There are no hard-and-fast rules. For the most part, handicapped ramps, floor and wall repairs, painting and other minor carpentry work is what they do best.
Once an applicant has been pre-screened for eligibility, the home is evaluated on an individual basis by a volunteer for suitability. Accordingly, the homeowner may be referred to other appropriate agencies for additional assistance.
