Save to Favorites

FREED

FREED's Fix-It Program is volunteer-driven and focuses on addressing the health and safety needs of Nevada and Sierra County residents so they may remain independently in their own home. As a Fix-It volunteer you will be serving seniors and people with disabilities addressing minor home repairs or modifications that fit your skill set. You will be offered the opportunity to work on a variety of services such as: installing grab bars, railing, or transfer poles repairing steps placing portable ramps building new ramps making minor plumbing repairs We are recruiting people with appropriate skills willing to contribute a minimum of three hours per month, and possibly larger amounts of time (less frequently) to co-work on more involved projects or to fulfill an urgent request. If you are interested in volunteering for the Fix-It Program, we require you to fill out an application that includes two professional and two personal references. We also ask volunteers to sign a Confidentiality Statement, an agreement that we are a Drug & Alcohol-free workplace, and an authorization to complete a background check. Fix-It volunteers provide an invaluable service to our community - your skills allow seniors and people with disabilities to remain safely in their homes. FREED volunteers have the opportunity to be highlighted at the top of our free Referral List, which we provide to over 600 people each year. The list includes handypeople, contractors, and various types of in-home care and service providers. Community members can hire directly from this list for jobs outside our Fix-It scope, knowing FREED has vetted the professionals on the list.
