Description

Door of Hope is a Christian, faith-based nonprofit that equips families facing homelessness to rebuild their lives. The In-Kind & Facilities Assistant (IKFA) supports this mission by coordinating in-kind donations and assisting in facilities maintenance and repairs.

The IKFA must have an interest in facility upkeep and repair. A solid foundation of general facilities maintenance is a must, but Door of Hope can offer more training in specific plumbing, electrical, carpentry and preventative maintenance. This individual should be patient, independent, hard-working, and have the ability to think quickly during times of high stress. At times, the job of the IKFA is not glamorous and behind-the-scenes, but be assured that you are providing an extremely valuable service and the impact of this position is immense.
