TrueNeighbors Village Helps with Tough Household Tasks

Sometimes chores to maintain a home can feel overwhelming. Now imagine you had trouble walking or carrying heavy loads. That’s why many older Irvine residents are glad to see helpers from the TrueNeighbors Village come their way.  Every few months, an energetic group rolls up their sleeves to help with some of the more tough home chores as part of a broad effort by TrueNeighbors Village to help older residents continue to live safe and vibrant lives. Want to help?
