The Chore Services Department at 50 North supports the independence of older adults by providing safe, high quality services. Chore Services are available to all Hancock County homeowners, age 50+, regardless of income. Homeowners pay for all supplies or building materials needed for service and are billed at an hourly rate for labor. Participants of the snow removal and lawn services will be chosen by a lottery.
Snow removal is a paid service, and uses a lottery system. If you desire to have your name placed in the lottery, submit the electronic form below by October 26th. Otherwise the form can be downloaded here, printed, and delivered to 50 North by October 26th. On October 28th at 9am, a public drawing will be held at 50 North.Anyone wishing to attend the lottery drawing is invited to do so. After the drawing, all seniors who placed their name in the lottery will be notified by letter.
Financial Assistance is available for chore services and are determined by a sliding fee scale based on family size and income. Applications can be picked up at the reception desk or downloaded here. For more information regarding Financial Assistance, contact the Outreach Department.
Services are on a first come first serve basis and as scheduling allows with the exception of lawn mowing or snow removal. “50 North reserves the right to inspect and/or assess potential chore services. If it is determined that the work is beyond the scope of what the 50 North staff can complete, you will be given options for assistance.”
