Helping you keep your home safe by assisting with small repairs and maintenance work

What is Handy Andy?

Handy Andy is a volunteer handyman service in Ocean and Monmouth County, NJ, designed to assist seniors aged 60 and older in aging gracefully in their own homes.

Recognizing that many seniors face challenges in finding reliable repair services for small home maintenance issues that are both safe and affordable, we offer a free service. Seniors can call us when they need assistance with minor repairs, and we’ll coordinate with a volunteer to visit their home. For those who are homebound, materials can be purchased by the volunteer, but must be reimbursed by the homeowner.

Seniors can easily register by completing a brief application over the phone, ensuring we have all the necessary information for safe and efficient maintenance.

  • Minor Carpentry, Plumbing, & Electrical Repairs
