Roof Repair Assistance for a Low Income Homeowner on Disability

I am in need of some roofing repairs. I live in Pennsylvania. There are about 4 spots leaking pretty good. I am sure the roof is 20 years old, but I am more than fine with getting the spots fixed. Does anyone know of any places in PA that can help a low income homeowner on disability get repairs?

So sorry to hear you are having issues. Don't give up hope for help...sometimes it just takes a lot of digging and asking.

We live in a great state as there are some resources that may help you, although my understanding is they have wait lists...so if this is critical you may want to see if you can get financial help from a church or friends (a Go Fund me) or local club or organization like Rotary or Kiwanis who may offer help to get it taken care of privately.

The PA specific sites are:

ohcdphila.org/.../

philly.curbed.com/.../philadelphia-free-home-repair-programs

dced.pa.gov/.../

www.phfa.org/.../housingapplication.aspx

If you need help understanding these programs or cutting through the red tape, you can take to your state senator, who it looks like is this person:

www.legis.state.pa.us/.../senate_bio.cfm?id=1044

His office may be able to assist you with things like Legal Aide (since you mentioned a party wall situation) and free notary. Ours in Pittsburgh is amazing!! They have always been very helpful for us.

You don't mention what your disability is, but some national disability organizations....like Easter Seals, the MS Society, the some Cancer organizations and such have programs to help people with a specific condition. You may want to call your local United Way office and see if they can help you.

Good luck!

I am sorry to hear you are still having issues. Try one more link or call 211:

Roofing is a huge challenge because of the expense and liability.

It may be easier to work with a religious organization or civic organization to help you get funding so you can use that funding to hire someone to do the repairs.

Go Fund Me is also a good way to raise money for things. Sometimes people know someone needs help, but are either embarrassed or afraid to offer, but if you ask, they will be generous. Just a thought! Prayers will continue.
