DURHAM HABITAT IS CURRENTLY RECRUITING AMERICORPS MEMBERS


Construction Crew Leader – New Construction

AmeriCorps members will help Durham Habitat extend its reach into the community and provide an educational and rewarding environment for volunteers and homeowner families. Durham Habitat will work on single site infill construction and larger scale block building. The members will help manage and develop groups of skilled and unskilled volunteers and homeowner families on the build sites, all while maintaining a safe, efficient work environment. 


Construction Crew Leader – Repairs

Durham Habitat’s Critical & Urgent Repairs program is intended to help Durham homeowners with limited income correct substandard housing conditions, which pose an imminent threat to life, safety, or accessibility. The goals of the program are to protect Durham’s current affordable housing stock and allow Durham residents to age in place with dignity. Typical home repairs include, but are not limited to replacing floors, putting ramps on decks, updating bathrooms, and replacing roofs. Due to the nature of their position, they will have less interaction with volunteers, but we do expect them to come away with an increased comfort level engaging with and working with the homeowners and partner families.
