Ald. Maldonado Launches Campaign to Keep Seniors in Their Homes
(May 23, 2018)--Seniors, 60 and older, can receive small home repairs free of charge--even if they are renters. The City of Chicago's Small Accessible Repairs for Seniors (SARFS) program provides safety, security and accessibility improvements that help senior citizens to remain in their homes.
"I'll be using social media, robo calls, and distributing flyers in the ward so all seniors can have these free repairs that keep them in their homes and apartments," said 26th Ward Alderman Roberto Maldonado.
Improvements are limited to minor repairs that may include, but aren't limited to:
- Grab bars
- Lever faucets
- Door repairs
- Carbon monoxide detectors
- Smoke detectors
- Wheelchair ramps
- Widen doorways
- Replace solid doors, storm doors, vanities, toilets, and floor tiles
LUCHA's SARFS Program is available to assist seniors with the following:
- Process the application
- Go on-site to determine services needed
- Make the repairs
LUCHA's Program Assistant, Ana Velez, can be reached at 773-276-5338 x 226 or via email@example.com.Maldonado is also hosting his 7th Job Fair on Thursday, June 7th from 10am to 2:00pm at the Humboldt Park Field House at 1400 N. Sacramento.
