URDC and St. Lukes Episcopal Church, 5421Germantown Ave., have teamed up to assist low-income/elderly homeowners with costly home repairs.

Thanks to its large dormitory and kitchen facilities, St. Luke’s is able to host a large number of out-of-town groups each year for volunteer projects in Philadelphia. One of these projects will be with URDC to work on home repairs for elderly and low-income homeowners in northwest Philadelphia who are unable to complete these repairs themselves. It allows elderly homeowners to “age in place” in their own homes and creates safer, healthier environments for their families.

The joint URDC/St. Luke’s project began in June and will continues in September and October.  Anyone can join in these volunteer efforts – contact URDC for more information.
