Home Repair - Teaching and Helping
Written by Physical Environment Content Coordinator   

Tens of thousands of low-income Tucson families need help to repair their homes. Thousands of home-repair professionals (plumbers, electricians, handymen, etc.) will soon retire and no one is being trained to replace them.

You or a young person you know can do something about both the problems. Join the Teaching & Helping team and learn how to fix an old home. (Family teams welcome.) Work in small teams with experienced professionals to help fix something important on the home of a low-income Tucson family.

Current one or two day projects include repairing and replacing doors, replacing a tub with a shower, tiling a small kitchen floor, or replacing kitchen cabinets. Volunteers must be at least 18. Teams are lead by experienced professionals who want to pass on their skills to the next generation. Experienced people welcome as team leaders (no current license required, stipend available).
