Frisco Helpers targets people, age 55 or older, and those with special needs residing in the city of Frisco or within the Frisco Independent School District and all members of sponsoring churches living outside the normal service area who need help with safety issues. The program provides maintenance and repair services for the home, with a key focus on safety issues.
Frisco Helpers will prioritize home repair projects based on need established by the following criteria to community residing people who are:
- In need of geriatric or medical support (such as changing light bulbs, changing air filters, installing grab bars, building ramps, etc.)
- Need assistance with technology related items (such as VCR/DVD programming, minor computer assistance, etc.)
- Feel uncomfortable seeking help from an unknown source
- Referred by another helping agency.
Frisco Helpers focuses on household safety and maintenance. General household remodeling is not within our scope. On a case-by-case basis, Frisco Helpers reserves the right to decide whom they will or will not help in compliance with our nondiscrimination policy. If we are not able to provide service to an individual, we will do our best to refer them to a local tradesman.
The client must be the homeowner and occupant, with the exception of rental property needing the installation of safety aids such as grab bars, ramps and smoke detectors or furniture adjustment. Installation in a rental property requires written authorization from the owner/agent.
