MLK Service ProjectFree Home Repairs for Older Residents

City of Decatur homeowners who are at least 62 years old may be eligible for help with home and yard maintenance and repair, free of charge, through the Martin Luther King Jr. Service Project. Since 2003, project volunteers have installed handicap ramps, replaced rotten wood, weatherized homes, repaired water damage and worked with professional partners to do plumbing, electrical, and HVAC work. The 18th annual project will take place on the weekend of Jan. 18-20, 2020. Other criteria include owning and residing in your home inside Decatur city limits and having a fixed or lower income.

Contact Lee Ann Harvey, 678-553-6548, or leeann.harvey@decaturga.com, to sign up or to refer someone to this program. More information about the project is available at www.mlkserviceproject.com.

“At the top of my list of ‘Things That Make Decatur Special’ is the annual Service Project in honor of Martin Luther King Jr. Getting to know seniors in our neighborhood and helping out in some small way has enriched my life and my experience of living as part of the community that is Decatur. As Mayor, I am especially proud of this collaborative effort and I look forward to this weekend every year!”
Mayor Patti Garrett
