Yard Assist

Throughout the community there are homeowners who are low income and struggling to keep up with basic yard maintenance due to temporary or permanent challenges.  Unfortunately, this can result in hazards, citations from the city, and neighbor complaints.  We want to assist.

 The first step

 

While what you see in this photo may seem like an impossible task, it actually represents what we see most often.  The good news is that it really is mostly just overgrown bushes and weeds.  With Yard Assist, we can start with getting the property into a manageable state.  Priority is given to those who have received city violations, or those who have significant overgrowth and hazards.   

GENERAL YARD ASSISTANCE
Services are completed by Volunteers.  Fall Leaf Raking, General Cleanup, Trimming, Weeding.  *Mowing is available on a limited basis and is only intended to avoid or remedy a violation.  

WHO IS ELIGIBLE?
Homeowners who live in our service areas, are low income and are unable to do their general yard maintenance.  Most often this is due to permanent or temporary physical challenges or other health related issues.  We currently can consider requests from Cleveland Heights, Mayfield Heights, Lyndhurst, Richmond Heights, Shaker Heights, South Euclid, and University Heights.         

WHAT IS THE COST?
We use a low flat rate based on household income for up to two hours of service for projects that fit within our guidelines.  

WHAT IF I AM NOT LOW INCOME? 
A household income of 200% of poverty and less would qualify for the low flat rate.  We understand that some people need help even though they are not low income.  We may be to able assist or refer you to other services.   

WHAT ARE SOME OF THE LIMITATIONS? 
We have a limited number of available appointments each year.  Volunteers do not provide services that would require a professional or the use of a ladder. We do not use chemicals and products including but not limited to weed, pest or grass killers, fertilizers, toxic cleaners, and spray paint.
