Home Repair and Maintenence Corps Member

Help members and friends of QUUf with various home repair needs.

Detailed Description: 
The HRMC is a non-professional but often highly talented group of volunteers who wish to be of assistance to members and friends of QUUF needing minor aid in various household tasks because of age, infirmities, or expense. As a member you will receive periodic email requests from the chair describing the repair project needed and time frame. Work is limited to tasks that do not require a city permit, such as wiring and plumbing. Members who are able to help then contact the chair. HRMC is always looking for a few good women and men.
Service Term: 
1 year
Benefits for the Volunteer and the Congregation: 

There is great personal satisfaction in helping others, but often the aid we offer is through an organization and the results are distant and unseen. Members of the HRMC not only see their work’s impact on others’ lives but find that they are helping old friends and making new ones. Often the recipients are older members of our congregation who have simple needs that can be frustrating to them but are within our skillset.

Skills Needed: 

The members of the HRMC need not be skilled, only willing, though it is often surprising (and gratifying) to discover the range of expertise we have in our group. Each time you receive an email you will evaluate whether this is a project within your skillset and whether you can do the work at the time requested.

Training, assistance, and safety requirements: 

You will be drawing on your lifetime skills and interests in helping others. The chair will assist, as needed, when working on a specific project. .
