About

The Volunteers of America Handyman Program is looking for a volunteer who is interested in getting to know the community! We need someone who enjoys networking, is outgoing, and is willing to strike up a conversation!

The ideal volunteer has a heart for seniors in our community and is interested in learning more about non-profit operations and community development. The position will be focused on meeting with local agencies, businesses and individuals to discuss our program, and build relationships.

A little about the Handyman Program:

The Handyman Program focuses on helping seniors and people with disabilities live independently through fall prevention, home modifications and home repairs. We coordinate about 40 jobs a month in Larimer County, including building wheelchair ramps, installing grab bars and changing light bulbs. Currently the program has about 35 volunteers who stay very busy working on projects.
