Repairs for Seniors


The City of Chicago’s Small Accessible Repairs for Seniors (SARFS) program is a no-cost program for individuals who qualify. Bickerdike has served as a delegate agency for the SARFS program, since its inception, over 40 years ago.


We  provide small-scale improvements and repairs to hundreds of households to make them more accessible and energy-efficient for our communities’ seniors.


We carry out approximately 30 to 35 jobs each year, helping seniors live more independently and reducing fears of housing instability and homelessness.
