Senior Home Repair Program – Next Step Ministries
In 2013 Neighborhood Alliance began a partnership with Next Step Ministries to bring much needed home repair assistants to “home-bound” Seniors in Lorain County. Next Step Ministries is a national organization committed to helping students become a part of real change in the communities locally and internationally. Neighborhood Alliance has partnered with Next Step Ministries to bring this positive change to Lorain County’s senior community. Industry professionals will lead these groups in various projects including but not limited to re-roofing homes, building wheel chair ramps, making bathrooms handicap accessible, yard clean up, painting rooms and fixing steps/porches.
In Lorain County over 14% of the residents are 65 or older and strive to stay independent as long as possible however many of their homes aren’t prepared to make this an easy task. Neighborhood Alliance has served this large community through various senior programming and are able to provide Next Step Ministries with a list of citizens that would benefit from this type of assistance.
In 2013, Senior Home Repair Program built 7 wheelchair ramps, rebuilt 2 unsafe porches, cleaned up 12 overgrown yards, replaced 2 roofs among other projects for Lorain County “home-bound” Seniors served by Neighborhood Alliance Senior Nutrition Program.
This is an ideal opportunity coming to Lorain County and we at Neighborhood Alliance are beyond excited to announce it. Please review the video below for more details…
