Hands For All

Our Mission

To advance the principle that people at all income levels have a right to decent, safe, suitable and affordable housing and to the sense of security, dignity and stability that such housing provides.

Who We Are:

“Hands for All” is a very well received and supported not-for-profit program of Ocean County. Established in 1986 as a Division of Homes for All, Inc., we started off as a volunteer-based program offering free of charge critically needed repairs to homes that are owned by low to moderate income families who cannot afford the repair work.

Since then, we have enhanced our services. We now employ professional contractors and personnel to fix your emergency repairs at no cost to you.

Our Goal:

Our goal is to prevent homelessness by offering free of charge home repairs to households that, otherwise, could not afford such repairs.

What We Do:

The Hands for All program offers emergency home repairs to households that qualify as low to moderate income within Ocean County. At Hands for All, we prioritize quality service by utilizing professional contractors and personnel to fix your emergency repairs.

  • Handicap Accessibility Ramps
  • Minor Roof Repairs
  • Hot Water Heaters
  • Boiler Replacements & Repairs
  • Furnace Replacements & Repairs
  • Floor Repairs
  • Major Plumbing Issues (such as, corroded pipes, city water collapse & pipe burst)

Guidelines & Requirements:

  • Ocean County Resident
  • Low to Moderate Income
  • Home-owner
  • Current with property taxes (owners of mobile homes must be current on land rent)

How You Can Help:

There are multiple ways that you can help make an impact in the communities that we live. Community building is something that we encourage all people to participate in. We require no experience from individuals that are seeking to be a Hands for All volunteer. We only require your faithful commitment to time, effort, and concern for your fellow community members. If you cannot volunteer, we accept donations and fundraising initiatives through your church or neighborhood. With your help, Hands for All will continue its mission to ensure quality service to low to moderate income households in need of emergency repairs.

Making A Difference:

Hands for All accepts applications sent by people in desperate need of assistance. Our goal is to support as many people in need as possible with our resources and through the support of our local communities, churches and compassionate people. This outreach seeks to continue making a difference in the lives, households, and communities that we love.
