KathyG Posted May 2, 2008 Report Share Posted May 2, 2008 I just learned about a potential source of help with those home repairs that so many of us widows don't know how to do. According to my grief counselor, a group of men who belong to the church she attends started a volunteer group that will tackle handyman-type projects for senior citizens or widows who can't do those projects themselves. I don't know more than that except that this group is in Phoenix, but I can find out more. I suspect there might be similar volunteer groups in other towns or states as well.Another idea: I wonder if maybe Home Depot or Lowe's would be open to holding how-to fixit classes geared specifically to single women and widows? The stores already have such classes, but they're for the general public. It would be nice if they'd start a class that would specifically address the kinds of home repair or maintenance challenges we now need to face alone.Does anyone think this would be worth pursuing?
