The Tuesday Toolmen volunteers began in 1995 in Kalamazoo, MI, by a few visionary and selfless individuals seeking to serve the senior low income population. Their goal was to provide free home repairs and modifications to help people remain safely in their homes. They worked every Tuesday under the auspices of Senior Services, Inc. of Kalamazoo, MI. to benefit their community.
The Tuesday Toolmen in partnership with the Home Repair Department of Senior Services, Inc., has logged thousands of volunteer hours and stretched thousands of Community Development Block Grant dollars by providing free labor. Some of the volunteers have sought to spread the word. Since then additional Tuesday Toolmen Chapters have been established in Traverse City, Bay City and Three Rivers, Michigan.
