Comfy Casas provides minor home repairs and various home appliances to low-income seniors and disabled adults.

Client referrals come from intake assessment coordinators, volunteers, and paid delivery drivers. These essential visits enable us to identify and address the clients' home safety needs. The coordinator conducts an initial walk-through in person or over the phone to discuss much-needed repairs with the client. Minor home projects may be completed by volunteers. Projects beyond the scope of this service are referred to other organizations. 

One of the easiest things we can do is make sure the temperature in our clients' homes is seasonally appropriate. So that means providing ACs and heaters to ensure our clients stay cool in the summer and warm in the winter. In 2020, we have helped 449 senior neighbors age comfortably and safely in their homes!

We are unable to accommodate major home repairs and electrical repairs.

To receive services from Comfy Casas:

  • You must be receiving meals from Meals on Wheels San Antonio.
  • Minor home repairs require the client to be the homeowner and reside in Bexar County.
