Since its founding in 1988, MHO has worked with volunteers to provide safety-related home repairs for low-income homeowners in Asheville and Buncombe County. MHO offers rewarding volunteer opportunities throughout the year.
Volunteer repairs may include:
- Building wheelchair/handicap access ramps
- Installing handrails or interior “grab-bars”
- Repairing rotted floors
- Replacing porches and stairs
Volunteers must be at least college age due to safety requirements and the technical nature of some of the work. However, carpentry experience is not required. Volunteers must only possess a desire to make a real difference in someone’s life. All volunteers work under the supervision of qualified and experienced MHO staff.

“We’re really enjoying the new ramp. It makes a world of difference in my ability to be able to come and go.”
“It is just like Christmas every day when we go down our ramp. Mother is able to get outside every day when the weather is good. Thank you so much!”
“I want to thank you and the college students and the others that helped in building the ramp. I feel safe when going down it.”
“Thanks so much for the ramp you put in for my mother in July. I can’t even tell you how much easier things are for her now. It has made all the difference. The service you perform is so needed! Thank you.”
“Thank you for letting us help make a child’s life better. You have taught us all not only to build a ramp, but also how to become better people. Many Thanks.”
“What I experienced was 1,000 times more than I expected -- to give people the independence that they had been deprived of. I went there to do good for others, and I hope I did, but I left having done well for myself as well.”
“I learned about my community, about disabilities, and a lot about myself.”
