A Fixit Clinic is a "pop-up" event where people bring their broken
belongings to learn how to repair them. Trying to fix something can be
intimidating! Everyone is welcome. No repair experience required. Volunteer
Fixit Coaches will be there to help you.

If you would like to participate please email Noelle at
noelle at homeresource.org, or go to this link to register:
. (Walk-ins are welcome, but registering is preferred.)

*Here are some tips for a successful Fixit experience:*


   Bring the broken item with all parts necessary to recreate the symptoms

   Bring any parts and tools you already own that might be helpful

   Come ready to clearly describe what’s wrong and what you’ve tried

   Come eager to learn and to share your skills and knowledge with others

*Other important stuff:*


   Please understand that we cannot guarantee your item will be repaired;
   not all coaches are experts.

   Please bring carry-in items only (no large appliances, large engines,
   furniture, etc.).

   Hooray for our volunteer Fixit Coaches! Without them this event would
   not be possible. If you are interested in becoming a volunteer Fixit
   Coach for future Fixit Clinics, please email Noelle at
   noelle at homeresource.org
