Helping Hands Senior Home Repair
of Matching Funds Remaining
Our mission is to keep Santa Cruz County seniors moving towards increased independence and engagement in our community. Many seniors living on a fixed income are forced to make the difficult decision between their safety and covering monthly bills. Helping Hands volunteers make the crucial difference in the lives of low-income senior homeowners by providing free, safety-related minor home repairs. As a volunteer based program, Helping Hands relies on the donated labor efforts of community members, local clubs and area businesses to carry out our projects. In the last year our Helping Hands volunteers donated over 1000 hours of service to home repairs for 500 local seniors. We have a modest budget with funds coming primarily from community organizations. Our program simply could not exist without sustained, community support.
