COMMUNITY HOME REPAIR PROJECTS OF ARIZONA
Join Our Team at Community Home Repair Projects of Arizona
Ccommunity Home Repair is a non-profit that provides emergency home repair and adaptive safety modifications for low-income homeowners in Tucson and throughout Pima County. There are a variety of roles that make this place work -- people to turn wrenches, people to answer phones, and people to provide guidance and oversight.
Home Repair Technician / Supervisor
The staff Field Tech/Supervisor will be responsible for carrying out various types of home repairs, which may include plumbing, electrical, carpentry, roofing, heating/cooling, and accessibility projects. The staff members also carry primary responsibility for training volunteers in the home repair trades as needed, and being thorough with the requisite paperwork. Staff are expected to provide leadership to volunteers in the technical aspects of the job, but also in modeling respectful attitudes towards the other CHRPA team members and the clientele whom we serve.
Staff members will need to be comfortable making certain decisions on jobs, concerning scope of work and problem-solving. The confluence of technical and social work skills as well as the ability to train others is essential in a CHRPA staff worker.
We normally work Monday through Thursday. Normally, the work day is nine - ten hours long. There will be exceptions due to circumstances at a particular job site, inclement weather, or long travel time. Because we work with many elderly and medically vulnerable clients, all staff are required to be fully vaccinated against COVID 19, and to follow the agency’s COVID protocols. Bilingual English/Spanish is helpful but not required.
Pay depends on experience ($18-$23 hourly). Benefit package includes health and dental insurance, paid time off and retirement.

CHRPA has a long history of work with volunteers, some who are short-term and some who have been with the organization for 15 years. Volunteers generally work in teams of two with a staff person or another volunteer. The team is provided with tools and a vehicle, and has a great opportunity to meet a wide variety of people in the community who need a hand with a critical housing issue. Our volunteers range in age from 22-75 and are former teachers, art students, contractors, and farmers. Volunteers are an essential part of our program.
We place high value on a culture of respect and compassion for our clients and we strive to create a supportive and affirming teaching/learning environment among the staff and volunteers. We all have a lot to learn and a lot to teach. We offer on-the-job training for volunteers and welcome any skills that our volunteer may already have to offer. Our crews are out Monday-Thursday.

The Board of Directors of CHRPA is responsible for the overall mission of the organization as well as setting the tone and values of CHRPA.
The board does this through gathering input from the community, clients, staff and volunteers. The board oversees the Executive Director who implements the mission along with all the CHRPA staff and our many dedicated volunteers. Please contact us if you would be interested in serving on our board.
