Hands On For Seniors

Matching Community Volunteers with Seniors to Maintain Their Homes and Independence.

Hands on for Seniors, an initiative of United Way of the Ozarks that matches seniors in need of home repair with community volunteers who can help. This program is generously funded by the Greene County Senior Citizen Fund.

Hands On for Seniors is a program that matches seniors in need of home maintenance, who are physically or financially unable to perform these tasks, with community volunteers who can get the job done. The goal of the program is simple to help seniors who are trying to remain independent and self-sufficient in their homes for as long as possible. In 2014 – over 1,500 volunteer hours; 280 volunteers; 250 projects completed, 60 seniors lives touched.
