Free Home Improvement Services Offered to Rancho Cordova Residents

Post Date:09/22/2017 12:13 PM
Sierra Service Project, in coordination with the City of Rancho Cordova, is seeking applicants for free exterior home repair and improvement services as part of the Rancho Cordova Neighborhood Beautification Program. Sierra Service Project is a local non-profit organization that has organized and managed volunteer community service activities for the past 40 years.

Sierra Service Project will provide light exterior home repairs free-of-charge, such as wheelchair ramp construction, fence replacement, exterior painting, chain link fence removal, and general yard cleanup.

Applicants must own the home and fall within certain income levels. Additionally, the property must be located within Rancho Cordova city limits. Low-income residents, seniors, and veterans are encouraged to apply.

Volunteers ages 16 years and older are also needed to help with these repair and improvement services and will be supervised by experienced staff.

The project is supported by a $35,000 grant from the City’s Community Enhancement Fund, and this is the third year Sierra Service Project has provided a neighborhood beautification program in Rancho Cordova. This program is part of the City’s efforts to enhance residents’ quality of life, increase property values, and transform neighborhoods into safer, cleaner, and healthier environments.

If you are interested in applying for free services or volunteering for the program, please contact Sierra Service Project Manager McKenna Culbertson at or 916-488-6441. There is currently no deadline to apply; however, a limited number of applications will be accepted.
