Home Repair Ministry

Helping Your Neighbor

Have you ever thought about the elderly and needy in our community and thought you'd like to do more than bring food to the donation room?  If yes, there is an opportunity for you to consider . . . 

The Home Repair Ministry

It's a simple concept: you and another with skills needed will visit the home of an elderly parish member or that of one who doesn't have the financial ability to hire simple repairs and you'll do them. 

Our Mission

To provide free assistance and/or advice to parishioners who need our assistance.  Some of the small jobs we do for people include the replacement of light fixtures, switches and outlets; screens; window glass; door knobs and locks; ceiling tiles; water filters; smoke detector batteries, and much more.

 

Our Operational Plan

 

HOTLINE:

We have established a hotline and monitor it. The Home Repair Ministry members commit to monitoring the hotline calls on a week - Sunday through Saturday night - on a rotating basis.

CASE  {Creating a Safe Environment):

Training and a background check are required by the diocese.  The CASE training can be done by clicking on the link below; it takes about an hour to an hour and a half.  Once completedd, you will get a CASE 'certificate of completion'and that needs to be submitted with a copy of your driver's license to Eileen Muoio at the Parish Center office for the background check and diocesan approval. You will also have to complete an Emergency Contact Form and Waiver. All this has to be done before we can officially add you to the team and allow you to make house calls.
