NeighborLink Indianapolis is a nonprofit that provides free home reapirs to senior homeowners and homeowenrs with disabilities. We provide repairs in 11 different categories but need a volunteer who understands drywalling, floor construction and related skills. This volunteer would use that knowledge to direct a pool of volunteer and paid resources to provide repair of walls, ceilings and floors in older, poorly maintained homes.
Activities would include assessing repair requests from people in need, determining what repairs should be done, determining how to use your pool of labor to fix the problem, directing those people, controling costs to an annual budget, assuring that work gets done, clients are satisfied, and all necessary reporting is done. You will work with direction of NeighborLink's professional services director. The current volume of work is about 25 small repair projects per year - typically falling plaster from water leaks, rotted floors under toilets, or holes in walls for various reasons. The budget is a few thousand dollars.
Objective: Allow homeowners to remain safely in their own homes by maintaining the habitibility of their houses. You do that by directing our wall, ceiling and floor services.
Time Commitment: whatever you have available and want to commit. We accept as many requests as we think we can meet in a year, so you will determine that number based on time and resources available.
