Neighbor in Need... needs you as a Project Lead!
Neighbor in Need East Atlanta is looking for people interested in joining a team focused on helping seniors in the EAV Community with Emergency Home Repairs.
What do we need? We need project leads. So what does a project lead do? Think of your own house and you need to get your roof repaired or your tub is leaking. What do you do?
You go on Yelp, Nextdoor, Angie's list, ask friends if they have any recommendations, who they use, etc… Get at least 2 or 3 names and numbers.
Then you call them and schedule for them to come over and give an estimate. (Get at least two or three estimates.
Once you have all the estimates, review try to pick the one with the best reputation and best price.
Seek approval from (spouse, significant other, or self…in our case from the Neighbor in Need team).
Contact the contractor to advise they got the job, ask them to work on scheduling. NIN contacts the homeowner and tell that the contractor will be calling them to schedule the job.
- Monitor the work by the contractor have them take before and after photos.
- Check the finished product, get an invoice.
- Get the invoice paid, job closed!
So, our project leads do the same thing as if you were doing repairs for our own homes. A few extra steps, but it is pretty easy. We are happy to train on how to do a job, have written guidelines how to work a project and a large directory of contractors to help expedite the process.
Seniors prefer to stay in their homes to live in familiar surroundings and also increases their life expectancy vs moving to a retirement center. Neighbor in Needs goal is to keep our seniors in their homes with everything working. Come join the team who loves to help our community roots!
