Handy with a screwdriver? Available for a few hours once or twice a week between the hours of 8am and 2pm? Our small Maintenance Team have to keep things operational at a total of 4 buildings: they literally have dozens of bathrooms, windows and doors to keep operational, and would love help with light tasks: they will do the heavy lifting, but they would love to have they have to help with those loose locks, leaky faucets and window screen replacements. The location will be primarily downtown Troy where we have a homeless shelter and our Admin. offices, which are also a home for 22 formerly homeless individuals.

Joseph's House has been helping men, women and children find housing for 37 years. We are committed to treating those we help with respect and dignity in a non-judgmental way, and we believe that getting into safe and secure housing is their first step to a better life. Be a part of this transformational work by helping those we help to be comfortable and feel cared for.

Ideal for someone newly retired who wants to maintain the skills they may no longer need in their own situation.

if you think you would like to help us for for a few hours a week, please get in touch.
