Welcome to Community Toolbox!

Community Toolbox is a non-profit Fix-It program based in Portsmouth, NH that offers small critical home repairs to Seacoast neighbors in need. 


We believe that everyone deserves to live in a safe and healthy home.  No-one should have to choose between paying the bills, putting food on the table or keeping their homes safe.  We believe in neighbors helping neighbors, that sometimes it takes a village.

That is why we do what we do.  Our trained volunteers go into the homes of qualifying individuals in our community and provide minor home repairs that improve the quality of their living conditions.  These repairs ensure that our Seacoast neighbors have the basic dignities of safety, health and accessibility in their homes. 

Please browse our website to learn more about our organization: How we can help you or your neighbors, and how you can help us help others improve their living conditions and their lives.
