How can we get help with repairs? We are both on disability and do not have money to get things fixed.

If there is a local chapter of Habitat for Humanity, they may be able to provide help with the repairs.

We do not know where you live or even what country you live in so it is kinda difficult to make suggestions.

It appears you are saying that both of you are receiving disability income? There are several questions that anyone looking for assistance would have to answer before a determination of actual "need" could be made.

You may be able to ask for help through your local church or some of your senior? service agencies. There are sometimes local builders that commit to helping low income families but you would have to look for these through someplace like the Salvation Army.


Some cities have special service offices just for helping low income families find help with repairs etc.

Do you own your home or are you renting? What may be "low income" to you may not be the same for agencies offering free assistance.
How disabled are both of you? How much can you do for yourself or help someone do?

These are probably some questions you will be asked when you find an agency that offers this type of assistance.

I agree you'll have to provide some more information for someone to try to help. Don't worry, we won't guess who you are! First, are the repairs structural (like the roof) or is it more in the way of appliances, like washing machine? Or is it the plumbing?


Is there mold, mice, roaches?
Do you own the house?
We want to steer you in the right direction.
