Homeowner Accessibility Services

How can we help you?

If you are a homeowner who needs accessibility modifications built at your home for yourself or a family member, please contact us. Yachad can make accessibility renovations to the inside or outside of your home including but not limited to:

  • Hand bar installation
  • Grab bar installation
  • Installation of handicap approved appliances and utilities
  • Ramp construction

We also have funding for renovations concerning disabilities such as asthma or allergies. This can include:

  • Removal of old, dirty carpet
  • Replacement with new flooring

We base our services on financial need and project scope, and work with homeowners who do not have the resources to pay for the costly renovations. Contact us for an application. We ask for proof of homeownership and current property tax records. If you are a long-term renter, we may be able to assist you if the landlord provides his permission.

After we receive your application, Yachad staff will schedule an appointment to meet with you to determine what is appropriate for your home modification.

If you have any questions, please contact us. We would love to hear from you.

How does Yachad do its work ?

Yachad is supported by private donations from individuals and foundations. Much of our accessibility renovations are supported by the National Fair Housing Alliance's grant. The accessibility modifications are completed by hired professionals or experienced handymen.

Our ramp building program is done under the supervision of a licensed and bonded contractor. The actual work is done by high school students during the course of one summer week. The program is called Ramp It Up! and was started in 2004. You can read more about the program here.
