Hard Hats and Helping Hands Home Repair Program (5H)

"Yachad's Hard Hats and Helping Hands program is a way, without taking up a lot of time or costing a lot of money, to make a large impact on certain people's lives... Our investment is whatever it takes. It's not a matter of money or hours; it's a matter of helping."

- John Eichberg, Chairman, Eichberg Construction

Hard Hats and Helping Hands Home Repair Program (5H) recruits building contractors and skilled trades people to provide their expertise and services to Yachad's home repair program for free or at a substantially reduced fee. The program is a great way for contractors to network with other tradespeople, improve their visibility in the greater community to grow their service market.

Yachad's goal is to organize a highly skilled volunteer labor force to provide services to low-income homeowners throughout the Washington, D.C. area. Repairs to plumbing, electrical, and drywall are always needed. Yachad works with the contractor or tradesperson to develop a feasible scope of work. When possible, Yachad will provide reimbursement for materials. Contractors must be licensed and bonded.

Please contact us at 202-296-8563 or if you are interested in participating or would like further information on the program. Consider adding your name to the growing list of community-focused, skilled professionals:
