Description

Our Home Helps ministry focuses on improving the quality of life for those people who are in need financially in York and Lancaster County neighborhoods in Pennsylvania by providing home repair and maintenance services to older adult, disabled individual, and single parent homeowners who, for whatever reason, are unable to do the work themselves or pay professionals to do the work. As a result, our volunteers receive the opportunity to empower older adults to live safely in their home for as long as they choose, to enable disabled individuals to live in their residence by providing interior mobility renovations and to assist single parents in providing a safe and healthy home for their children. The Home Helps program builds wheelchair ramps, both inside and outside for mobility and freedom; caulks windows and doors and installs insulation to create warm homes; seals leaks and replaces single windows so homes are dry from water infiltration; replaces rotting staircases, drywall, flooring, ceilings, etc. for safe and healthy living; and performs property maintenance, to name some of the services. Home Helps steps in when the homeowner has already tried to get help from local agencies, churches, their family, other nonprofits, neighbors and friends. No experience is required as we will train you on the job.
