Home Helps

Home Helps, which serves York and Lancaster Counties, was started in 2007.  Home Helps provides repair and maintenance services for low-income older adult, disabled and single parent homeowners.


Home Helps' 500 volunteers serve together to build wheelchair ramps for mobility and freedom; replace rotting staircases, drywall, ceilings, doors, windows and flooring for a safe and healthy home; install ADA compliant showers and bathrooms; caulk windows and doors; paint both the interior and exterior of the home; provide minor plumbing and electrical work; and perform property maintenance.


In 2016, Home Helps volunteers from York County received the Junior League of York's Volunteer of the Year Award! We are always in need of volunteers - both skilled and unskilled - no experience required - to assist our homeowners.  Please call us at 717-378-0336 for details and a volunteer application or email HomeHelps@Servants.org.

In the past 3 years Home Helps has ministered to over 300 different families through the work camps.  Homeowners and communities are seeing the hands and feet of Christ at work while home maintenance and repairs are lovingly provided to our brothers and sisters in need. God not only blesses our homeowners during these work camps, but also the volunteers who interact with the homeowner and work side by side serving Christ. Volunteers are able to experience a mission trip in their own communities. 


Please prayerfully consider joining Home Helps as we step out in faith to be the “light of Christ” for our homeowners in need. More details will be coming.
