The Partner Fee helps to support and continue Operation Backyard. We have a number of other funding sources to help cover the cost of materials and other necessary costs to each project, however, these fees help cover the cost of items not covered by our other funding sources, like qualifying our homeowners, administrative cost, staff cost, tool and equipment cost, and site coordination cost.
Operation Backyard is a full service operation. We will have already selected the family, designed the work for the day, made a material list, ordered and purchased materials and have them on the site when you show up. We will have all tools on site. If you require construction supervision, we will have an experienced crew chief on site during your project to help you. Our staff will also be available to make sure if you need anything during the day that we will get it. So, all you have to do is show up, love on the homeowner and work.
