About

NeighborLink Indianapolis is a nonprofit that provides free home repairs to senior homeowners and homeowners with disabilities. We provide repairs in 11 different service categories but need a volunteer who understands gutters and downspouts. This volunteer would use that knowledge to work in a pool of volunteers and paid resources to provide repair of gutters in older, poorly maintained homes. The clients call NeighborLInk, we determine their eligibility and send you to help. NeighborLink pays for materials.

Activities would include assessing repair requests from people in need, determining what repairs should be done, determining what, how and when to fix the problem. You assure that work gets done, clients are satisfied, and all necessary reporting is done. You will work with direction from NeighborLink's professional services director (a nice guy!). The current volume of work is about 25 small repair projects per year - typically falling gutters and inadequate drainage.

Objective: Allow homeowners to remain safely in their own homes by maintaining the habitibility of their houses. You do that by directing our gutter repair services. If you can handle this, please call us and discuss. We've found this is ideal work for recent retirees who want to give back. Dave at 317-286-2740 has all the details and wants your help! You can email dave@nlindy.org.
