The maintenance department is under the guidance of the Programs Operation Director. The Maintenance crew is responsible for general repairs and upkeep of YIHA properties. They are also responsible for unit turns, which is preparing a rental unit that has been vacated for the occupancy of another client. Emergency work orders remain a priority for the maintenance crews. If you have any questions for the Maintenance Department or need to turn in a work order request, call Rachel Provolt at 707-482-1506 ext. 1009.
