Chore Service Program

The Senior Citizen Chore Service program is for persons age 60 and older who are residents of targeted areas in southern Macomb County and who are eligible. Center Line Residents call 586-469-5012.

You must call each year to be placed on the snow and grass lists - we do not carry people over from season to season or year to year odd jobs/special projects. During the months of November through March, Chore Service does the following types of jobs. It may be necessary for you to purchase materials.

  • Minor Electrical
  • Minor Plumbing
  • Replace Locks

Season Services

Seasonal services are currently available in Center Line, Roseville, St. Clair Shores, Eastpointe, Warren and Clinton Township. Service is limited and may be granted on a priority basis for those determined to be in the “greatest economic or social need.”

Snow Removal

To be put on our Snow Removal List you must call between August 15th and October 15th. You will receive a letter of confirmation near the beginning of December. Once you receive the letter it is not necessary to call when it snows. Snow removal is usually performed after a snowfall of 3 or more inches. Under normal conditions, snow is cleared within one to 5 days of snowfall.

Grass Cutting

To be put on our Grass Cutting List you must call between February 1st and March 15th. If your name is placed on the Grass List you will receive a letter of confirmation before grass cutting season begins. It is not necessary to call again for grass cutting. It will be cut approximately once every 2 weeks, weather permitting. Grass cutting generally begins the first of May and continues through September. Please remember we are not a landscaping service. For other jobs such as trimming bushes, you must call so a job request can be taken and scheduled.
