Homeowners know simple repairs can add up quickly. A local company is helping families who are hesitant to call for help.
Handyman Connection, a locally-owned business in Colorado has teamed up with United Way and it’s support for 2-1-1. The organization connects people with resources of all types, and in this case, it will allow Handyman Connection to do some repairs for free.
Owner Shaun McCarthy says, “the 2-1-1 program connects individuals who have needs and in our case when we get involved it has to do with something around their home. It’s just such a great fit for us.”
Their first project was completed earlier in October when a woman needed a repair on her privacy fence.
“She was super stoked and so happy and kept thanking us. I just explained to her, it’s what we do,” Eric Morrison, the craftsman in charge of the job explained. “We try to help people out as much as possible.”
With one project completed, McCarthy says he’s hoping for more.
“Our hope is that we’re really able to help a homeowner solve a problem before it gets too big and can really be quite an expense for them.”
