Because our housing stock in and around Boston is among some of the oldest in the country, home maintenance and repair are ongoing issues that require continual attention. That, coupled with older homeowners who lack disposable income, means some properties are in need of numerous repairs. If you or an elderly friend or relative need minor home safety repairs, the cost of getting minor safety-related repairs may be greatly reduced or free, depending on income.
This program of four Boston-based non-profit organizations – Neighborhood of Affordable Housing (NOAH), Kit Clark Senior Services, the Ecumenical Social Action Committee (ESAC), and United South End Settlements (USES) – are all funded by the City of Boston. These are all firmly established, well-respected agencies with extensive, long-term experience implementing senior safety repairs for low-income seniors, and all are partner agencies with the City of Boston DND Senior Home Repair program. Funding is provided by the City of Boston, Martin J. Walsh, Mayor, through its Department of Neighborhood Development, Sheila A. Dillon, Director.
These agencies work together, combining years of experience and individual resources, to further their collective goals and to reach increased numbers of senior homeowners in Boston. Together, the four agencies are effectively serving disabled homeowners and struggling Boston senior homeowners aged 62+.
