Handymensch Volunteer Program


Yachad's Handymensch program is a group of semi-skilled volunteers who work on a few repair projects a year. Volunteers must have some home repair experience, but can improve and learn new skills on the job. Groups of a few Handymensch go out quarterly to homes and non-profit sites with Yachad's construction manager to tackle vital repairs.

All we ask is that you make a commitment of volunteering at least twice a year. Handymensches make it possible for Yachad to make a bigger impact by decreasing project costs so we can do more work.

For more information or to sign up, e-mail Lisa Hershey, Yachad's Program Director, at lisa@yachad-dc.org.

“I’ve really enjoyed working with Yachad and would love to continue to help out in the future in whatever way I can. I hope I’ve given as much as I feel I’ve received from the experience.”


-Rachel, Handymensch volunteer
