Habitat for Humanity partners with people in local communities, and all over the world, to help them build or improve a place they can call home. Habitat homeowners help build their own homes alongside volunteers and pay an affordable mortgage. With community support, Habitat homeowners achieve the strength, stability and independence they need to build a better life for themselves and their families.
Habitat for Humanity Portland/Metro East (HFHPME) is an independent affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International, a global home building movement and top private home builder in the country. By providing affordable housing, home repairs, skilled construction training, financial education, and volunteer opportunities, the organization has transformed millions of lives, helped stabilize communities and fostered economic vitality in the region.

The ideal candidate for the Home Repair Management role will possess a unique balance of hard and soft skills. Budgets, timelines, and safety standards are firm, and must be balanced against the ability to build and nurture productive relationships with homeowners, contractors, volunteers, and colleagues. The incumbent will be equally comfortable working in a controlled office setting, as well as in the field, which at times may be unpredictable. An ownership, self-regulating mindset is highly valued, along with an ability to work independently toward organizational, departmental, and personal goals.
The Home Repair Manager is responsible for HFHPME’s Home Repair Program. This position is the first point of contact for applicants to the Home Repair and Preservation Program and manages the selection of homeowners, development of scope of work, and engages and works with subcontractors to ensure that projects are completed to the satisfaction of the homeowner. This position will also work closely with volunteer programs to engage volunteers on Home Repair projects when possible.
