Maybe it's something small like a light switch that does not work. Or it could be the stairs need to be fixed and you haven't been able to go upstairs or down into the basement for ages because you are worried about getting hurt if you do.

Rebuilding Together, according to their website is a non-profit who just wants to help people out. Specifically with their "Handyman Program" here is what they can help DC residents out with:

provide timely small-scale repairs and safety and accessibility modifications. These repairs can typically be completed in four hours or less and include repairs such as grab bars, hand rails, improved lighting, minor accessibility modifications, and fire safety installations.
