Handyman Services


Jewish Family Services has a volunteer handyman. These services are intended to keep our seniors safe in their homes. Handyman services are not structural in nature. That is, our handyman cannot install grab bars or service electric wires or plumbing needs. However, our volunteer handyman can change light bulbs, hang pictures, change an air filter, fix loose screws and more. Clients are responsible for the cost of all parts needed for a repair and $5 per handyman visit (not per project during visit). To see if we can meet your need and to schedule a handyman service, please call Jewish Family Services at 937-610-1555.
