Subject: New Minor repair funding

We have just received a grant that is specifically directed at making year-round minor repairs for low-income elderly and disabled homeowners in Berkeley. This will include minor plumbing, electrical, and carpentry, and other safety repairs such as repairing hand rails and banisters, replacing defective ovens and ranges and vent-a-hoods, repairing improper and broken door and window locking mechanisms, and more.
It is my hope that this will expand our ability to reach not only more citizens, but the Berkeley citizens most in need.
When we make these repairs it will be an entrée to view the individuals' homes and determine if there are greater issues at hand thatwe will be able to help them with through our City of Berkeley funded Safe Homes program. If you become aware of homeowners in need of such repairs and funding is not otherwise available, please check with us to see if we can help.
