Repairing Dripping Faucets and Water Pressure

I am disabled. I have a condominium, but I am having plumbing issues, including weak water pressure and dripping faucets. My once a month check does not spread far enough after mortgage, home insurance, HOA, utilities, car insurance, food, and gas for automobile. What suggestions for how to get water pressure decent again and stop faucets from dripping and wasting water?

Weak water pressure is the condominium's responsibility. If your faucets drip, contact the condo. It may be covered in your maintenance dues. If not, contact a local church. Many of them have people who will do this for elderly and disabled people.

You own the condo, right? Check to see if the HOA payments cover this. Mine did when I had a condo.

Generally, weak water pressure is an outside issue. However the leaky faucets may be your responsibility. They could be something as simple as needing new washers or gaskets. If they are dripping, try to save some of that water, by putting a bucket in the sink and using that to flush the toilet or water plants with., until you get them repaired.

Since you pay for HOA, if the water has to deal with outside your home, they should fix it for free.

I'd ask HOA. Or do you happen to know the on duty handy man, maybe they can check it out for free if you're nice to him.

LOW INCOME HOME REPAIR
There are government agencies that help low income families, however, they are often difficult to find. A very easy online search for "home repair low income family" produced many responses. You can try a search yourself and this very helpful federal government site:

It is nice that you have your own condominium but you may not have read (or understood) all of the benefits that are available through your monthly maintenance fee. Most likely water pressure is something that should be discussed with your condominium officials and also try discussing it at one of your regular meetings. Have you heard others complaining about water pressure?

Leaking faucets may be too minor a problem to try and go through one of your government agencies as these are generally reserved for larger and more intensive repairs.
I would recommend that you discuss your problem with your building maintenance person first to see if they can help and, if that does not work then try your local church as they may have someone who can repair this type of thing. (You may have to buy new faucets.) Generally a church has names of local organizations that you can contact.
Asking for absolutely free services may not work so be prepared to pay at least a nominal fee.
