Cover Home Repair and the COVER Store are now open and safe!

We are carefully following the state and CDC safety guidelines:
wearing masks, frequent handwashing, and a six-foot distance are required for all staff, volunteers, shoppers, and donors.  We want everyone to be safe and help avoid another shutdown.
If you forget your mask when you come to the store, we have a supply of cloth masks made by Kathy Partridge, one of our store staff members.
If you have an urgent home repair need, call us at 802-296-7241, ext 4.
If you want to donate something to the store or you need something from the store, call us at 802-296-7241, ext 1
If you know a family that needs some support, resources, or food, please check out the Upper Valley Strong web site: https://uvstrong.org/  There are many organizations working together to find ways to help the community. If you or anyone you or dial 211 for information.
Remember that about 20% of our neighbors are unemployed and the coronavirus is still in our communities.  We all need to lend a hand, check on our neighbors, and be as safe as possible.  We will get through this together.

Home Repair Program

 

Do you need home repair?

Homes always need repairs but not everyone can afford it. Sometimes friends and family can come to the rescue but when they don’t…un-resolved problems create many undesirable issues: high heating bills, accelerating disrepair, and the declining health and comfort level of the people living there.
In the Upper Valley, old houses and mobile homes, harsh winters and high proportions of low-income residents can present home owners with home repair issues that are beyond their ability to fix. COVER completes more than 70 urgent home repair projects each year. We focus on repairs that improve the home’s ability to provide a safe, comfortable and healthy environment for its inhabitants. Roof repair, accessibility ramp construction, structural floor repair and weatherization are common projects.
Most projects are scheduled to be completed in two full volunteer crew days, working 9:00 am to 4:00 pm.
