Connections Handyman Service (CHS) inspires hope for low-income, seniors, and disabled homeowners of all ages with free essential home repairs that empower them to live safely in their own homes.
Every 11 seconds a senor is treated in the ER due to a fall. In order to prevent falls and support healthy living, it’s important to provide solutions for homeowners with limited incomes.
Home repair projects include, but are not limited to, access ramp construction, bathroom modification for accessibility, window repair, plumbing, and HVAC repairs. CHS provides services to approximately 100 Greene County seniors each year.
The need for services is based on referrals or an individual’s direct application with CHS. Once the referral is received and validated through a home visit, a licensed professional evaluates the request, which is then submitted to the CHS director for review and funding approval.
Eligibility requirements vary, but all clients must be:
- Greene County residents who own their home.
- Some repairs are limited to seniors, some to individuals with disabilities (no age requirement).
- All repairs must be considered “essential” meaning the residence is becoming uninhabitable or unsafe to live in without repairs.
Licenses plumbing, HVAC, and electrical contractors can donate time to assist in repairs for seniors and disabled adults.
