Pickens County Meals on Wheels

Minor Home Repairs

E veryone has the right to food and shelter, yet too many seniors existing at or below the poverty line live in homes that are unsafe. A new roof, bathroom accessibility, or safety modifications can make it possible for a senior to remain independent, improving their lives and keeping communities strong.

In partnership with the Appalachian Council on Governments, the United Way of Pickens County and Duke Energy Retirees, we are able to offer minor home repairs to seniors in Pickens County.

Applicants must meet the following criteria:
