Our mission is to actively serve the community of the Antelope Valley by providing services that contribute to the health, safety, and quality of life for each individual/families, starting with a stable home.
- Minor Home Repairs
Maintaining a healthy and safe home is a difficult task, especially on a fixed income. Minor Home Repair assists low- and moderate-income older and disabled homeowners by providing health and safety related repairs that they cannot perform due to lack of funds and/or inability to physically perform the repairs themselves. Our purpose is to enable people to remain in their homes as long as possible.
We offer the following services
- Plumbing/sewer repair
- Minor carpentry
- Limited roof repair
- Door/window repair
- Select weatherization
- Ramp repair
- Handrails/grab bars
- Door locks
- Smoke alarms/carbon monoxide detectors
Low- and moderate-income homeowners 62 and older or disabled homeowners 18 and older. Our program uses government grants and private donations to provide labor at no charge and materials either free or at cost, depending on your income level. The goal of the Handyworker Program is to contribute to the overall revitalization and stability of the targeted neighborhoods by providing minor home repair services to (income-qualified households) within the unincorporated areas in the Antelope Valley that are part of the Fifth Supervisorial District of Los Angeles County. The object of the program is to improve the condition of homes, including mobile and manufactured homes that are considered part of the County’s permanent housing stock.
The Program is designed to address the habitability of, and mobility within the home. While a wide variety of work may be eligible under the federal housing rehabilitation regulations, Antelope Valley Partners for Health (AVPH) retains the right to determine the scope of work that meets the criteria of need for habitability and mobility within an income-qualified housing unit, and to deny assistance for items not meeting that requirement. Currently, due to limited funding and the high level of need and interest in the Handyworker Program serving the unincorporated areas of the Antelope Valley, households are required to wait a period of three (3) FISCAL YEARS BEFORE RE-APPLYING TO THE Program. The program is based on a Fiscal Year beginning July 1st through June 30th.
The following areas of the Unincorporated Supervisorial District 5 of Los Angeles County, in and around the Antelope Valley, will be served for eligible participants of the project. These areas include: Pearblossom, Lake Los Angeles, Juniper Hills, Littlerock, Llano, Del Sur, Hi Vista, Lake Elizabeth, Lake Hughes, Antelope Acres, Valyermo and portions of Quartz Hill. Client geographic location eligibility will be through address verification on the “map locator” on the CDBG partner’s page.
