Home Repair & Clean Up Program

Now accepting applications for home repair and clean-up projects:

WisCorps will be hosting a Neighborhood Crew from October-November 2017. The crew of 5-6 local youth and an adult Crew Leader will be available to complete basic home repairs for individuals who are elderly or low income or have a disability that prevents them from doing the repairs themselves.

Work is completed free of charge by our crews, however we ask that home owners provide the supplies necessary to complete the project (paint, nails, caulk, plants, etc.).  WisCorps crews have most of the hand tools necessary for many of the projects that you may need completed on your home.

  • Repairing fencesimg_20160628_094011541

  • Overgrown landscaping
  • Light painting
  • Mailboxes
  • Pruning trees (no hazards)
  • Caulking windows
  • Door repair
  • Missing or loose siding
  • Heavy moving (150 lbs or less)
  • Light bulb replacement
  • Window washing (1st story)
