Senior Minor Home Repair and Chore Program

The SLAAA Minor Home Repair and Chore Program includes both contracted and volunteer services.  The contracted service program includes repairing heating and cooling systems in the home, basic plumbing and electrical work, minor home repairs to both the interior and exterior of the home, and basic home modifications to include ramps, handrails, grab bars, etc.  Clients may have to bear some cost depending on the work involved. The volunteer provide minor home repairs and household chores for senior citizens (60 years of age or older) living in their own home in the City of St. Louis.  More than four hundred volunteers from several youth programs participate in the program.  Adults supervise all youth groups.  SLAAA, the volunteer groups, and/or the homeowner provide the supplies and materials for the projects.  Projects include yard work, painting, gutter cleaning, window cleaning, minor carpentry, etc.  There is no cost for the service, but donations are accepted.   For information, call 314-612-5918 / 877-612-5918
