Minor Repair Program

The BronxWorks Minor Repair Program assists older adults who need assistance with repairs for relatively minor home issues when they cannot afford a handyman. The Minor Repair Technician is a trusted and skilled BronxWorks staff member who comes to older adults’ homes to ensure their safety and security.

Due to COVID-19 precautions, we are not currently sending our Minor Repair technician to homes.

If you need assistance, please contact Rosalina Luongo at 718.933.5300.
