FSL works with city to make homes safer

North Central Phoenix-based Foundation for Senior Living (FSL) has been contracted by the city of Phoenix to perform Healthy Homes Whole House inspections to single out hazards and potential hazards.

FSL will diagnose health and safety home repair needs; triage and prioritize newly active cases based on emergency repair needs; develop and provide a report based on the assessment of the dwelling; monitor the project oversight and contractors; and provide third-party quality control evaluations and customer satisfaction feedback. The contract is for two years and began in February 2017.

“We have been providing home improvement services in Phoenix for over 25 years,” said Katie Martin, program director of FSL Home Improvements. “We’re excited about this contract because it gives us another opportunity to work with our long-time partners at the city of Phoenix and allows us to reach into another part of the community that we may not have been currently serving. We anticipate completing approximately 60-75 inspections before June. We know there is a great need for our services in the community.”

FSL typically finds the following hazards at homes they inspect: tripping hazards, inadequate heating and cooling, plumbing, electrical and pest infestation. Once a problem or potential problem has been identified, FSL will notify the city of Phoenix, which may or may not be able to address all potential hazards.

The City of Phoenix has a wait list for its rehab and weatherization services. If you are interested in learning more, contact the city directly at 602-534-4444, option 4.
