REPORTS TO: Program Coordinator
GOAL OF ASSIGNMENT: Assist with simple home repairs and maintenance.
JOB SUMMARY:Our EZ Fix volunteers assist clients with minor home and safety repairs as well as general light house keeping services. The goal is to help seniors to stay in their homes longer while feeling safe and comfortable. EZ Fix volunteers help with installing grab bars, repairing steps, railings and doors. Volunteers also help with light electrical & plumbing and winterization.
Although the spectrum of services is broad, volunteers can decide what they are comfortable helping with and how much time they feel comfortable volunteering. Scheduling is very flexible. EZ Fix volunteers typically volunteer 1-3 hours monthly and sometimes less. It’s really up to the individual, but you certainly do not need to be a skilled contractor to lend a hand. All levels of skill are needed.
