HOMEOWNER ASSISTANCE

United Saints is happy to be able to offer services to homeowners in need of repairs and assistance with their homes. Our organization matches volunteer groups with homeowners who need assistance. Because the majority of our volunteers have intermediate to no skill we specialize in projects that are relatively easily to facilitate with a group of 8 or more.

 

Other criteria that we look for in a work site are: homes affected by disaster, victims of contractor fraud, people with disabilities, seniors, and low-income to moderate income family homes.

 

For more information please look at the lists below that contain more specifics on projects we can help you with. Please keep in mind that all projects are considered on a case-by-case basis, with our understanding being that no two homes are the same.

What United Saints CAN do and are good at:

 

  • large-scale interior and exterior painting
  • Hanging drywall
  • wood and hardy-back and/or replacement
  • tile or laminate flooring (if the sub-floor is level and in good repair)
  • Gutting and/or demolition
  • Community gardening
  • Lot clearing
  • Boarding up vacant houses
  • And more!...

The following are projects that are difficult to accomplish with unskilled volunteers. Some of this work we have done the in the past if accompanied with a larger-scale project.

 

Repairs that the United Saints CAN NOT do or find extremely challenging:

 

  • Licensed plumbing and electrical work
  • Working in small cramped spaces (ex: bathrooms, sub-floors around toilets, sinks, etc.)
  • Window sill and joist sub-floor work on homes
  • Window and door installation (especially if there's no other large scale work to do
  • Light fixture installation
  • Small projects / handy-man repairs (projects that would utilize less than 8 volunteers
  • Houses that have been painted within the last 5 years

 

If you believe your home meets our qualifications please click the link below to fill out our homeowner Survey. Once completed, our Project Coordinator will contact you to discuss the repairs need for your home further.
