Who Can Apply?
To apply for work to be done on your house, you must 1) own your home and live in it, 2)live in close proximity to the Bedford and Chestnut Ridge Area, 3) provide proof of homeowners insurance. Among the applicants to meet these requirements, we place a priority on candidates who are widowed, the elderly, the disabled, and single parents.
Note: Any applications received after the May 27th deadline will be considered for 2017.
What Work Can His Work His Way Volunteers Do?
Our work teams are not professional contractors. Teams will consist of adults and teens, some skilled and some willing to work hard. Nevertheless, we aim to do good, quality work that is a service to you. Our teams do most home repair projects, including painting, dry walling, carpentry, cleaning, yard work, and some masonry, roofing and plumbing. We will also provide work teams for community projects, nonprofit organizations or those organizations that serve as active partners in the His Work His Way Bedford ministry.
Who Supervises the Work?
Teams are directly supervised by the adult leaders who come with the teams. Sometimes the adults are pastors or teachers; sometimes they are volunteers who enjoy helping young people learn to serve and grow in their spiritual lives. Our staff members travel from worksite to worksite to deliver supplies, to encourage the homeowner, and to offer technical assistance to the teams.
Do the Students Get Paid?
No, they don’t. All of the students and adult leaders volunteer their time and efforts. In fact, team members actually pay tuition to participate in His Work His Way Bedford; their tuition provides for their meals, and project materials.
How Can I Give Back to the Workers?
It’s always great if homeowners can spend time talking with the young people who are working hard. If homeowners can provide a kind smile, that’s an excellent gift! Able-bodied kids or grandchildren (12 and older) are encouraged to help with the work.
Once You Send In Your Application…
In May, His Work His Way Bedford will contact you to make an appointment to review the scope of the work that appears on your application and determine whether or not we have the resources to meet the request. If we are able to help, we will call in early June to arrange the details for the work to be completed. If we are not able to help, we will call to inform you in early June.
