Philly's Home Repair Program
Improving the Quality of Life with Seniors in Philadelpaia
The goal of this home repairs project is to ensure the city’s elderly have safe homes to live in to improve quality of life. The Program started in Southwest Philadelphia Thursday, April 9, 2015. We currently have projects scheduled in 19141, 19126, 19116, 19146, 19143, 19132, 19126, 19131 and 19142.
This project was created to help seniors, individuals who are disabled and our elderly who seemed to be the forgotten generation. These are our matriarchs and patriarchs of our families in our communities who are in their Silver and Golden years and while they are supposed to be enjoying life, many are struggling on fixed incomes and not afford even the most minor repairs in their homes.
