Home Repairs

Currently funds are not available for this program, but if you have any questions, please feel free to contact Heidi. *If you are a low-income senior 60+ years of age, the In-Home Modification Program may be able to assist you.

Philosophy and Purpose

Low income Seniors 65+ years of age in the ten county areas (Becker, Clay, Douglas, Grant, Norman, Otter Tail, Pope, Stevens, Traverse and Wilkin) experiencing difficulty in securing funds and manpower to ensure much needed home repairs are completed. Too often seniors live far away from their family and unaddressed health and safety items make it difficult for seniors to remain safely and independently in their homes.

Overview

The Community Services – Services Development (CS-SD) program offers low-income seniors 65+ years of age, updates to remain living safely and independently in their principle residence. The CS-SD program will provide the supplies and manpower through the use of volunteers in West Central MN Communities Action’s Group Cares Camp, In-Home Modification programs and other important community volunteers wishing to make an impact.
