SHARP – Senior Home Assistance Repair Program
A volunteer driven program designed to help senior citizens and disabled residents to continue to live with dignity in their own homes. The unique feature about the SHARP program is that while the labor is performed by volunteers, the materials are paid for by the homeowner.  Frequently, it is the high labor costs that make some simple repairs too expensive for those living on a fixed income.  One of the ways to save money is to “do it yourself!”  Many of our homeowners have been “do it yourselfers” in the past, but are no longer able to because of health or mobility issues.

The SHARP program is now accepting requests for assistance.  Assistance requests should be relatively simple in nature and not require the need for a licensed contractor or permit.  Eligible tasks may include but not limited to: changing furnace filters, changing storm windows, changing light bulbs, light painting, moving furniture or light yard work.  All SHARP volunteers must go through a background check and training.  SHARP is a partnership program with the North Woodward Community Foundation.  Please call 248-370-9353 or email to sharp@auburnhills.org for assistance.
