Love this awesome home-repair service in Scotland for older and disabled people who want to live independently in their own homes. 15,000 clients so far, with 99% rating the service as excellent. Wow!
Also, I think handyperson (or “mendyperson”!) is probably my dream job. Sending in my application now… 😉
We’ve read about a few similar initiatives in the United States:
- Habitat for Humanity in Utah. Here’s a link to a piece about the project.
- Butler County, Ohio, has a project where volunteers mend people’s houses.
- And teen volunteers are working in Grove City, Ohio to help fix houses, too!
If you know of any other similar projects that we can highlight, let us know.
