Household & Outside Maintenance for Elderly (HOME) provides affordable services that help seniors continue to live independently in their homes. Our core staff along with a network of skilled workers and volunteers provide homemaking and home maintenance services for residents age 60 and older in many of the suburban communities of Hennepin County. Seniors contribute to the cost of the service based on their monthly income and ability to pay. HOME also accepts some insurance payments as well as the Elderly Waiver and the Alternative Care Grant.

The goal of the HOME Program is to assist those age 60 and older with household chores to help promote independence. Each year we receive a growing number of requests for help with leaf raking, window washing, yard clean up, gardening, basement cleaning and garage sweeping. We rely completely on the generosity of volunteers to fulfill these requests. HOME also places volunteers with individuals who need assistance with seasonal chores such as snow removal and lawn mowing. Our volunteer opportunities are flexible and great for individuals as well as groups.

HOME is always looking for good workers to help with Homemaking, Lawn Mowing, Snow Shoveling and other maintenance chores. For more information, please contact us!
