Revitalize Your Neighborhood

City-wide (volunteer minor home repair services to help neighbors in need)

Building maintenance and small repairs made regularly help to prevent major deterioration and loss of distinctive  elements and the important ornamental features of historic buildings.  However, many homeowners of historic properties are unable to  provide such regular care for their homes.  We encourage neighbors and interested groups, such as school and church groups and Boy and Girl Scout groups, in consultation with Preservation Worcester (for historic preservation tips and guidelines), to work together to assist with repairs and maintenance, which will not only help neighbors preserve their buildings but which will also enhance the character of our city’s neighborhoods.  The creation of local maintenance crews can also boost neighborhood spirit, which is a valuable contributor to a strong sense of community.
