Volunteer-Provided Home Maintenance Services
Another important PWC service solution is offered through our volunteer department. Volunteers can help with simple home maintenance… tasks that are routine yet difficult for those with a disability. For more information about volunteer-provided maintenance services, please visit our volunteer section.
People Working Cooperatively, a Cincinnati-based nonprofit that serves the Greater Cincinnati area, has teamed up with the City of Cincinnati to offer the Cincinnati Lead Education and Remediation Program (CLEAR). PWC was selected by the City of Cincinnati to provide all intake applications for homeowners interested in the CLEAR program.
This new program reduces lead hazards from your home and could involve repairs such as a window replacement or covering lead surfaces.
