Handyworker Program

The Handyworker Program provides free Minor Home Repairs for low-income seniors and persons with permanent physical disabilities who own and live in a single family home in the City of Los Angeles. This program also helps homeowners and renters install Safety and Security Devices. The repairs of single family homes are for routine maintenance or minor repairs and improvements that address homeowners’ basic health, safety, and accessibility concerns. The installation of safety and security devices will help prevent crime and accidents in the homes of property owners and renters.
