What We Do

The goal of the Greater Boston Senior Home Repair Collaborative is to make minor safety-related repairs for Boston-area seniors aged 62+ to ensure that they can remain safely and independently in their homes for as long as possible. The repair services that we offer include (but are not limited to):

-Repairing/replacing broken toilets and faucets

-Unclogging drains

-Installing grab bars and handrails

-Repairing exterior and interior stairs

-Installing doorbells for hard-of-hearing clients

-Repairing/replacing exterior door locks

-Repairing broken windows

-Making safety-related floor repairs

-Repairing/cleaning gutters that are causing leaks

The Collaborative may also offers assistance to those needing major rehabilitation work (such as accessibility ramps) by helping them to look and/or apply for additional renovation assistance.
