Taking Care of Each Other, Taking Care of Our Community
Many Plano residents need assistance with home maintenance to ensure their safety and protect the integrity of their neighborhood. The City of Plano offers assistance to veterans, single parents, widows or widowers, seniors, disabled residents and more. From minor home repairs to outdoor maintenance projects, Neighborhood Services offers programs to help you and your neighbors.
Your donation of time, skills or resources supports our programs. To assist residents with common property code violations, volunteer your time or skills through Plano CARES. While most home issues are quickly resolved, some residents are unable to correct violations because of physical or financial hardship. Eligible projects include:
Minimal tree trimming
Damaged fence removal/repair
Small demolition projects
Accessory building removal/repair
Minor exterior home repair
To support residential projects, donations are needed to purchase building materials, tools and supplies. Also, some home maintenance issues require hiring contractors or renting specialized equipment. Contributions are used solely for the expenses associated with these assistance programs and are tax deductible.
