Getting little repairs done around the home is not only difficult for low-income seniors, it can be a problem for all seniors. Many communities now have programs run by volunteers or with public or private grant money that provide small repairs for seniors under certain incomes. Other areas offer handy man services at reduced costs from safe providers. To find programs you may qualify for in your area you must search: 1) your city or township government, 2) your county government, and 3) local non-profit agencies and local development corporations. Make sure you check with all of the following offices for help in locating appropriate organizations in your area: 1) your local library, 2) your local elected officials, 3) your local United Way, and 4) all housing agencies in your area. Local government offices can be identified at www.govengine.com and your local United Way can be identified at
