WHY CHOOSE US?
When pipes burst on a chilly winter morning, or a sink springs a leak in the middle of cooking, it’s stressful, expensive and sometimes actually dangerous. You can get all the inspiration from do-it-yourself shows and videos, but what if you don’t know how to properly hammer a nail or own the right tools? This is where Y-Fix It can help, as part of an innovative non-profit (YWCA Wheeling) whose mission is empowerment and economic advancement of women and girls. Y-Fix It home repairs are a one-call solution for a wide range of home maintenance and repair needs.
Our staff of handywomen develop their skills through 12-week program. Upon completion, they receive their electrician apprenticeship license, a plumber in training license, their Occupational Safety and Health Administration 10-hour construction safety certification and a carpenter helper certification. We help women achieve sustainable success.
