Would you like help clearing snow from your stairs, porch, stoop or front walk? Many boroughs offer a snow clearing assistance program for seniors and persons with reduced mobility.

About the service

As a senior or person with reduced mobility, you can ask for young people to come and clear your stairs or front walk of snow. This service is offered free of charge thanks to the involvement of community organizations. 

Once your application has been accepted, young people will come to your home during storms to clear snow from your front walk.
