NeighborLink Indianapolis

  • 1 person is interested

NeighborLink Indianapolis(NLI) provides free home repairs and related services for low-income seniors and those with disabilities who are homeowners living in Marion County. We are able to provide these services at no charge to the homeowner because we rely on volunteers.

Project Leads are key volunteers for NLI and own the planning, execution, and communication to everyone involved to ensure we have a successful project and satisfied stakeholders. They're responsible for assessing the scope of projects, determining materials, supplies, number of volunteers/days needed as well as if experienced or semi-skilled help is needed. The Project Lead is also responsible for securing all materials/supplies for a project, ensuring delivery of the supplies/materials to the site in advance of the start of the project(including coordinating use of the trailer and hauling at end of a project as needed) and engaging the Site Manager to manage the work and volunteers onsite the day of the project.

If you have strong organizational skills, are detail-oriented, interested in leadership opportunities as a volunteer, and knowing that at the end of the day, the work you do is making a difference to at-risk homeowners, this could be the volunteer opportunity for you.

Mission Statement

NeighborLink Indianapolis provides free home repairs and related services to low-income seniors and individuals with disabilities who own their own home and live within Marion County, Indiana. Our mission is to help these homeowners age in place safely and independently.

Description

NeighborLink Indianapolis (NLI) is a private nonprofit that provides low-income seniors and those with disabilities living in Marion County with free home repairs and related services to help them age in place safely and independently. Since being established in late 2013, NLI has completed more than 2000 home repairs. NLI serves seniors (62+) and adults with disabilities or limited mobility who own their home and are living at or below 150% of the federal poverty guidelines. Our services include: interior and exterior home repairs, addressing accessibility needs, large one-time clean ups and help with Health Department citations. Homeowners in need of help contact us directly or may be referred to us by other agencies or community groups. Clients are also identified through Health Department citations. Once it is determined a homeowner qualifies for NLI services, we coordinate a network of volunteers who assess the problem, recruit the right help, and get the work done. We use local volunteers and skilled handymen and local professionals who make their services available without charge to do the repairs. We pay for services when necessary for legal, safety or other reasons. And if a project for some reason is outside the scope of our services, we will connect the client to the resources needed to remain safe in their home.
