The Minor Home Repair program of RHSC, assists Older Adults in keeping their home safe and in good repair.
Examples of Repairs may include: installing smoke detectors, changing light bulbs, trimming bushes, installing grab bars, tightening stair railings, repairing leaky plumbing fixtures. Carpentry, plumbing and electrical skills are helpful for minor needs which do not require licensure or permits.

Volunteer Groups are encouraged to reach out as there is often outside yard work needed for a one-time job.

All details are coordinated through the Center's Outreach Coordinator, for the safety of the Client and the Volunteers.
