CHORE

CHORE connects seniors with independent contractors that provide services such as snow removal, lawn mowing, cleaning, and minor home repairs on a sliding scale. Supported by a grant from the Metropolitan Area on Aging (MAAA), CHORE helps seniors maintain their independence, stay in their own homes as long as possible, and enhances their quality of life.

GETTING STARTED

Am I eligible?
You must be over age 60 and a resident of Scott or Carver County.

If you live in Dakota County, please contact DARTS.

How do I apply?
Please contact Terry Hassan at 952-402-9835 to find out if CHORE is a good fit for you.

SUPPORT CHORE

CHORE is funded through a combination of grants and individual donations, and could not operate without community support from community partners and individual gifts. Please click here to donate.

We also need volunteers. We offer free training support, and especially need people who have skill sets in home maintenance. All volunteers have the option of providing a one-time task or participating in the “Adopt-A-Senior” model, in which you provide ongoing help to a senior.
