Home Repair Assistance for Seniors in Georgia?

My mom lives alone and has a house in Georgia. The steps entering the house are falling apart. All of the plumbing is leaking and the AC/heater stopped working. The floors are falling in, the windows leak, and one of her toilets won't flush. Major home repairs are needed. Who can help her in our state?

There are lots of agencies that provide help with home repairs and most can be found if you Google: free home repairs low income senior and provide your zip code (Georgia is a big state and different services may not be in every county so add your zip code).
I would say to check local churches but the repairs are too extensive for a small place to be able to help.

I have a few listed below but someone will probably have to help her complete the many forms needed to see if she qualifies and if they have funds to help her.

Habitat does repairs but you'll have to check their site to see what can be done for your mother.

You can check some of these agencies but some (like HUD) may tell her she needs to move to one of their sites instead of doing massive repairs.

There are a lot of home assistance programs for seniors online these days. In some cases if the home is as badly damaged as you say it is they might not repair this home and will tear it down. I would start off in your area and contact HUD. Then go to the US Government and start applying for some low interest or loans that don't need to be paid back. This will all take time and winter is coming. In some cases these people will take up to a year or longer to get you the help you need. I would try a local church or a community help center to see if people can help you out a lot faster.
