Helping America's Most Vulnerable

Handyman Program

helping seniors live safely

Volunteer

Volunteers of America's Handyman Program in Northern Colorado focuses on home safety through assessment, education, and repair. Our primary goal is to help reduce the risk of injury from slips, trips and falls. We provide simple safety repairs and minor home maintenance for limited-income seniors and disabled adults who reside in Larimer County. Volunteers provide the labor; clients are responsible for the cost of materials.

 Falls in the home are the number one cause of serious injury and hospitalization for individuals aged 60 and over. 


Examples of Things We Do

  • Install grab bars and handrails
  • Install smoke and carbon monoxide detectors 
  • Make minor repairs on stair treads
  • Replace furnace filters and light bulbs
  • Build risers for chairs, couches, and beds
  • Build wheelchair ramps

Examples of Things We Can't Do

  • Repair or replace roofs, siding, appliances, or automobiles
  • Move or lift furniture or other heavy objects
  • Paint interior or exterior of the house
  • House cleaning or window washing
  • Remodel rooms or exterior structures
