Painting Senior's Home

NeighborLink Indianapolis(NLI) is a small nonprofit organization that provides free home repairs and related services to low-income seniors and individuals with disabilities who own their own home and live within Marion County, Indiana. These repairs and services are at no charge to the homeowner so they can remain independent and age safely in place.

NLI is powered by volunteers. Our home repair projects provide great volunteer and team building opportunities for groups from churches, universities, businesses and organizations. This can be a one-time three hour commitment, or a multi-day commitment, depending on the group's interest.

Due to COVID-19, we are limiting group projects to outdoor yard work and clean-up for the remainder of 2020. We are limiting group size to no more than 10 volunteers to allow for appropriate distancing and we require each volunteer to bring their own mask and work gloves to wear during the event. Our shifts are generally from 9a-12n but we can consider altering the schedule with advance notice and if our resources can support. Dates are flexible.

You can help champion the NLI cause by connecting us to or helping to organize a group to volunteer together. Our group projects make great service and team-building opportunities for businesses, faith-based organizations, schools, etc where volunteers get to see and feel the immediate impact of their work.

Mission Statement

NeighborLink Indianapolis provides free home repairs and related services to low-income seniors and individuals with disabilities who own their own home and live within Marion County, Indiana. Our mission is to help these homeowners age in place safely and independently.

Description

NeighborLink Indianapolis (NLI) is a private nonprofit that provides low-income seniors and those with disabilities living in Marion County with free home repairs and related services to help them age in place safely and independently. Since being established in late 2013, NLI has completed more than 2000 home repairs. NLI serves seniors (62+) and adults with disabilities or limited mobility who own their home and are living at or below 150% of the federal poverty guidelines. Our services include: interior and exterior home repairs, addressing accessibility needs, large one-time clean ups and help with Health Department citations. Homeowners in need of help contact us directly or may be referred to us by other agencies or community groups. Clients are also identified through Health Department citations. Once it is determined a homeowner qualifies for NLI services, we coordinate a network of volunteers who assess the problem, recruit the right help, and get the work done. We use local volunteers and skilled handymen and local professionals who make their services available without charge to do the repairs. We pay for services when necessary for legal, safety or other reasons. And if a project for some reason is outside the scope of our services, we will connect the client to the resources needed to remain safe in their home.
