Big Fix-A-Thon

You're invited to support our 10th Annual Big Fix-A-Thon visiting the Town of Barnstable by becoming a fundraiser! Fixer registration is now closed.

The Big Fix-A-Thon is an annual event that supports the impactful work of Housing Assistance Corporation in three ways: 

  • Raising much-needed funds to enrich and enhance Housing Assistance's existing services.
  • Providing assistance to veterans, seniors and disabled homeowners with clean-up, landscaping, and small home repairs. 
  • Offering a meaningful hands-on experience for volunteers on the day of the event.  

EVENT DETAILS
