Do you have broken sidewalk in need of repair, or minor home improvement projects like painting, siding, dry rot repair and the like? The Youth Learn and Construct program may be able to help!
In 2013, Independence formed a creative partnership to train local youth in construction while repairing sidewalks and doing minor home improvement projects for low-income homeowners. The program was such a success that it is returning in 2014!
The program partners with qualified, low-income homeowners who struggle to maintain the exterior of their homes. YLC ensures that families live in safe, well maintained homes and is designed to revitalize the appearance of neighborhoods, encourage connections within the community, and help preserve affordable housing stock.
