Councilwoman Shanklin partners with ElderServe for seniors in District 2

August 30, 2023

Louisville (August 30, 2023) – Councilwoman Dr. Barbara Shanklin has partnered with ElderServe to provide senior citizens in District 2 with assistance on emergency property issues and home repair.

If you are 65 years old or above, you may be eligible for one-time home assistance, covering areas like yard maintenance, bush overgrowth, lighting concerns, general cleanup, and more.

“I’m honored to extend this unique assistance to District 2’s residents who are unable to perform these tasks themselves. As a Council representative I want to support every individual in my community, especially our elderly who might not have the resources or capability to handle some of these everyday tasks,” said Councilwoman Shanklin.

This home assistance program will run through the end of the year, or until the funds have been depleted. 

To find out if you’re eligible, please contact Councilwoman Shanklin’s office at 574-1102, and share information about your specific need and property address. If you qualify, your information will be sent to ElderServe for next steps.
