What We Do
New Program to Help Older Homeowners
As people enter the third third of life, many hope to remain in their homes and “age in place.” Doing that, however, may be difficult for a growing number of older adults.
What if making minor home repairs, installing grab bars and other safety devices, or helping with outdoor projects could reduce that difficulty and allow an older person to remain at home?
Discovering the answer to that question will be the focus of a new program sponsored by our region’s elder care ministries.
Repairing Homes, Restoring Hope will partner with congregations in the region to identify older homeowners who need help. Now completing a pilot phase, the program will become available throughout the region later this fall.
Volunteers of all skill levels will play an important role in the program. There will be a special opportunity for volunteers to help with a pilot-phase project on Saturday, October 26.
To volunteer for the October 26 work day, contact Bobby Nelson, program coordinator, at (401) 573-9385 or email@example.com.
