Do you want to work alongside a team of dedicated professionals to help Watauga, Avery, Mitchell and Yancey counties’ most vulnerable residents? If so, consider becoming a WAMY Community Action Contracting Partner!

We are always in need of all types of contractors, but are especially looking to grow in these areas:

  • HVAC
  • Plumbing
  • Electrical
  • Handypersons
  • Remodel and Renovation
  • Weatherization

Contact WAMY’s Community Housing Director, April Beck at april@wamycommunityaction.org or 828-406-4705, and you will find out more about becoming part of our contractor bid pool. This gives you a great opportunity to work with us year-round! The contractor will need to provide proof of liability insurance, but a contractor’s license is not required. You can bid as often as you’d like. WAMY Community Action pre-screens households and outlines the services required at each location. All you need to do is bid on the work you would like to perform, provide your time and expertise, and when you receive your check, know that you gained the dual benefit of growing your business and helping your community.
