Full-Time Opportunities

In the months after Hurricane Harvey, Avenue responded to the community’s need for housing by developing its Single-Family Home Repair Program. The intent of this program is to return low-to-moderate income Houstonians to safe, livable conditions, and to provide stable housing so that other unmet needs can begin to be addressed.

The Coordinator will assist affected homeowners in navigating the repair process by helping the homeowner engage suitable contractors to repair their flood-damaged homes, and in managing the overall repair process from estimation to project completion. The Coordinator will also insure that repair funds provided by Avenue to the project are appropriately committed and disbursed by vetting contractors, developing comprehensive Scopes of Work, and reviewing all estimates, contracts, and work completed by contractors.
