Repair Affair

Repair Affair mobilizes resources and volunteers to make repairs on homes owned by low income homeowners who are elderly or disabled.

The focus of Repair Affair is on home safety, security, weatherizing, and neighborhood stability. It is not a decorating, remodeling or emergency repair program. Most repairs are completed in one day.

Repairs include:

  • wheelchair ramps

  • handrails and grab bars

  • flooring

  • steps

  • locks

  • door and window repair

  • minor electrical and plumbing repairs

  • roof repair

  • interior and exterior painting

  • yard work and clean-up

Repair Affair recipients must:

  • Own and reside in the home

  • Be at least 60 years old or certified as disabled

  • Be of low income (50% of area median income or less)

  • Live in Louisville, Kentucky or Floyd or Clark County Indiana

Applications are accepted January 1 through March 30 each year.

To apply for Repair Affair assistance, call:    (502) 589-2272.

Event Day

Although repairs are completed from March to September, most Repair Affair teams work on one of two event days in June. Half of Repair Affair's impact is achieved on Event Day. The rest of the jobs are scheduled to fit into other volunteers' schedules.
