Repair Department – CAPABLE Program
Habitat Philadelphia’s Repair Program provides affordable home repair services to low income homeowners who are struggling to maintain their homes, make necessary critical repairs, and pay their utility bills. As a subset of these efforts, the Repair Program is starting a new Aging in Place initiative. This initiative will follow the CAPABLE model, which brings together Nurses, Occupational Therapists, and a handy-person to provide in-home medical and home renovation services with a goal of improving occupant mobility and activities of daily living.
The ideal candidate must have a blend of office and construction skills. The Construction Coordinator will be responsible for managing the CAPAPBLE program from start to finish. These duties will include application pipeline management; home evaluations; scheduling and coordinating visits from medical care providers (nurse and occupational therapist); performing home modifications, accessibility upgrades, and critical home repairs on owner occupied homes; record keeping and reporting.
