Frankfort, IN- Frankfort senior citizens, disabled veterans, and physically challenged residents can benefit from the city of Frankfort Neighbors Helping Neighbors program that is designed to help these community members with improvements to their yards and the exterior of their homes.
Residents who are 65 years and older, disabled veterans, and citizens who have physical challenges that prevent them from taking care of their property can call the Department of Building Services at (765) 654-5278 to schedule an appointment. Home visits will be scheduled and completed on a first-come, first-served basis.
Similar to the firefighters and police officers conducting safety checks at seniors’ homes, the Building Services Department will conduct exterior evaluations of yards and houses and make helpful suggestions regarding mowing, brush trimming, and minor maintenance needs. Following this evaluation, the Department of Building Services will make arrangements for a team of community volunteers to mow the yard, trim back shrubs, or make minor repairs.
Residents who want to participate in this program and individuals interested in being a volunteer can contact Don Stock at (765)654-5278.
