We love supporting amazing organizations making a difference in the Capital Region. Since November, and through August, we have been celebrating local non-profits with our Grassroots Giveaway. We are excited to announce the June recipient and congratulate Umbrella of the Capital Region!Umbrella of the Capital Region is dedicated to “helping seniors and people with disabilities maintain their homes and independence.” Services provided by Umbrella include help with home maintenance, housekeeping, lawn care; transportation for appointments, shopping, and social events; stepping in to give the family and friends providing care a chance to enjoy quality time with their loved ones. Umbrella is a unique organization, not only providing the services they do, but by how they provide these services. The handyperson position comes with great benefits for retirees to keep their skills sharp, supplement their income, and remain active members in the community. Through their hard work, they help the frail elderly and disabled community members remain in their homes. Umbrella employs over 100 retirees including licensed professionals in fields like plumbing and electric. The organization also has contractor references for large jobs and can help in a home emergency event like burst pipes of a furnace that won’t start.Through Umbrella’s efforts, families can keep loved ones in their homes longer, promoting independence. Umbrella currently serves over 500 homes within Albany, Schenectady, Saratoga, and Rensselaer counties. If you know someone who could benefit from a little help around the home or is looking for a way to remain active and keep their skills sharp, we encourage you to visit Umbrella of the Capital Region’s website.
