About

NeighborLink Indianapolis is a small nonprofit that provides free home repairs to low-income seniors homeowners and homeowners with disabilities. We need a volunteer who can work with a team of us to return phone calls to clients in need, discuss the need over the phone, and record the problems. The work can be done from your home if you have email access.

Activities would include returning phone calls, scheduling visits by NeighborLink personnel, communicating information between staff members and volunteers, and helping clients get the help they need. You need to be comfortable working with seniors who can be confused and/or scared by the situation.

Objective: help allow clients to remain safely in their own homes by facilitating home repair help from NeighborLink, and making our communication with these clients work for them.

Time committment: one day per week but can vary as you are available. You work with a team and schedules vary to cover personal needs - we are all volunteers.
