Project Impact

Fire Safety: We address fire hazards that most homeowners never consider, like clogged clothes dryer vents. We also provide and install fire extinguishers, smoke detectors, and CO detectors.

Fall Prevention: Falls among older adults is a serious issue and most often occur at home. To prevent these injuries, we install grab bars, stair railings, half-steps, ramps and chair-height toilets. We correct tripping hazards, add lighting, and improve the entrances to homes.

Moisture Control: Water can seriously damage a home and hurt occupants’ health. RT-AFF diverts water away from the house, repairs gutters and downspouts and corrects roof leaks.  And we repair plumbing leaks and exhaust fans to improve ventilation in kitchens and baths.

Basic Repairs: Homes need both regular maintenance and periodic repairs to keep families safe and healthy. RT-AFF addresses the home’s exterior and interior.
