CHEBOYGAN — The Cheboygan County Habitat for Humanity is currently seeking someone who would be interested in serving as a home repair site supervisor to help the entity’s home repair program grow.

The home repair program was started just over a year and a half ago and encompasses weatherization needs, minor interior and exterior repairs and critical repairs for qualified homeowners in Cheboygan County.

“We are excited to be able to offer this great program for qualified households in Cheboygan County. However, the pandemic has been a burden to this program as material and labor costs have increased and finding subcontractors has been especially challenging,” said Cheboygan County Habitat for Humanity Executive Director Mandy Martin. “We see the need in our community and would like to be able to grow the program’s capacity to try and meet those needs.”

Habitat for Humanity is looking to help expand the program and is in need of help, whether it be paid staff, volunteers, or even contractors to bid on projects to be completed.

The home repair site supervisor is a year round, full time position.

“The home repair site supervisor is responsible for addressing the most fundamental and crucial home repair needs in low-income, owner occupied households,” said Martin. “Using a general evaluation of occupant well-being and a full assessment of the house and systems, needs are identified and prioritized so that they may be addressed in an order of importance and urgency.”
