Safe at Home is a high-impact, half-day of service to low-income senior homeowners over the age of 60 in Indianapolis. Volunteers help make their homes and yards safe and accessible for daily living. Every year CICOA and community volunteers provide home safety modifications to a central Indiana community.
The event, presented by George's Pharmacy & Medical Equipment, occurs during National Fall Prevention Awareness Month.

Volunteer at Safe at Home
Each year about 150 volunteers help with home modifications, yard cleanup, visiting with homeowners and event logistics. There are opportunities to volunteer at the Safe at Home event as a sponsor or community partner.
Because of COVID-19, new safety procedures have been put in place to protect the vulnerable seniors we serve as well as our eager volunteers. These include social distancing practices and limiting the number of volunteers inside each home. Although the event will look different in response to the pandemic, our goals remain the same—to make homes and yards safe and accessible for daily living and to prevent falls.
All volunteers must be age 18 or older.
Join us as a sponsor and bring a team of volunteers! We need house sponsors to help with the cost of building materials for the home modifications. Our house sponsors receive a host of benefits and can bring a team of volunteers as well.
If you or your company are interested in sponsorship, contact Susan Cornacchione, Vice President of Development, by email or call (317) 803-6062.
