St. Paul Senior Chore Service

Saint Paul Senior Chore Service provides services for older adults (60+) and persons with disabilities who want to remain in their homes, but need some assistance.  Senior Chore Service can provide workers who will assist with leaf raking, mowing, snow shoveling, minor home repairs, and other chores.  Senior Chore Service also has connections with groups that do house painting (interior and exterior) and can provide access to other resources, if needed.

Senior Chore Service matches clients with paid youth workers or volunteers who assist with home maintenance chores.  Youth workers are paid directly by clients and the usual charge is between $5.00 and $10.00 per hour (negotiable). Subsidies are available to help pay for services to qualified individuals.

Senior Chore Service is always looking for new clients and youth workers. Youth workers willing to do snow removal are especially needed.  Clients and youth workers must live in one of the following neighborhoods:  St. Anthony Park, Como, Merriam Park, Hamline Midway, North End, Summit-University, Thomas-Dale/Frogtown, West 7th, or Westside.  Youth workers must be between the ages of 12 and 18 years old.  To participate (as either a client or youth worker) or for more information, contact Senior Chore Service at 651-649-5984 begin_of_the_skype_highlighting            651-649-5984      end_of_the_skype_highlighting.
