ORGANIZATION: Volunteers of America Northern Colorado Services

Handyman Helpers

The City of Fort Collins's Healthy Homes program seeks enthusiastic community members to conduct free, in-home air quality assessments to help residents of Fort Collins learn about the health risks posed by common home pollutants. Master Home Educators are asked to participate in a 20 hour training and contribute an additional 20 hours to the community conducting home health assessments.

Don't want to venture in the homes? Come help an outdoor crew with a fun build team that helps seniors and disabled adults stay in their homes. No tools necessary and you will be trained to help with the new ramps and rails. The VOA Handyman program is just the ticket for getting out there and keeping the senior community safe.


The AmeriCorps Seniors RSVP program specializes in placing adults age 55+ into service in their community. Let us help you find your best fit and connect you to an agency where you'll find purpose and meaning in your work. Volunteers support a variety of causes, including elderly care, food and housing insecurity, disaster relief support, animal care, cultural interests and more. Benefits include personalized placement assistance, free training, community events, and insurance. Join us today!
