Fix It Program

Do you have a leaky faucet or need grab bars in your bathroom? FREED can have volunteers make minor home repairs or modifications which are health or safety related. These minor home repairs and modifications support people with disabilities, including seniors to continue to live in their own homes and not become institutionalized.

The Fix It Program can:

  • Install grab bars
  • Install and repair hand rails
  • Repair or replace broken electrical switches, plugs and fixtures
  • Repair leaking drains and faucets
  • Help with ramps
  • Minor repairs to entry steps and porches
  • And more…

Fix it services are available to any senior age 60 or older, living in Nevada, Sierra, Yuba or Sutter Counties. In addition, Nevada County and Yuba City residents of any age, with a disability, qualify for these services.
