Taking Care of Each Other, Taking Care of Our Community

Many Plano residents need assistance with home maintenance to ensure their safety and protect the integrity of their neighborhood. The City of Plano offers assistance to veterans, single parents, widows or widowers, seniors, disabled residents and more. From minor home repairs to outdoor maintenance projects, Neighborhood Services offers programs to help you and your neighbors.

Get Involved!

Your donation of time, skills or resources supports our programs. To assist residents with common property code violations, volunteer your time or skills through Plano CARES. While most home issues are quickly resolved, some residents are unable to correct violations because of physical or financial hardship. Eligible projects include:

  • Minimal tree trimming
  • Trash removal
  • Damaged fence removal/repair
  • Small demolition projects
  • Painting
  • Gutter cleaning
  • Basic landscaping
  • Accessory building removal/repair
  • Minor exterior home repair

To support residential projects, donations are needed to purchase building materials, tools and supplies. Also, some home maintenance issues require hiring contractors or renting specialized equipment. Contributions are used solely for the expenses associated with these assistance programs and are tax deductible.
