Are you handy with tools and enjoy helping others? Do you require a small repair job to be completed in your home? The Shepherd's Center of KCK has a Minor Home Repair program for older adults in Kansas City, Kansas. Jobs are small repair jobs that normally take one to two hours to complete.

Minor Home Repair volunteers are willing and able to evaluate and refer more complicated repair work. Volunteers with the Minor Home Repair program are skilled and experienced in plumbing, electrical work, carpentry, and other general repairs. They are recruited, trained, and supported by Shepherd’s Center of Kansas City, Kansas.

As a rule, the jobs do not include painting or climbing on ladders. If you enjoy doing small repair jobs and helping others, OR if you require small repair jobs completed in your home, please contact the Shepherd's Center of Kansas City, Kansas, 913-281-8908.
