  • The Cleaning for a Reason Foundation offers free professional housecleaning and maid services for women undergoing cancer treatment. Women age 18 or older currently undergoing cancer treatment for any type of cancer qualify for this service. The Foundation recruits professional residential maid services that are insured and/or bonded (and performs background checks on their employees). Maid service partners are located in all 50 states, D.C., and Canada. The companies offer four free cleanings - one a month for four months. The Foundation accepts cancer patient applications online, obtains doctor verification of treatment, and then matches patients with their partner maid services. Interested applicants should see if a maid service partner is available in their area by clicking on the "Locations" tab on the Foundation's Web site (see link in Additional Resources section below). The application process is handled through the Foundation - do not contact the maid services directly.
