About Rebuilding Together Seattle
Located in the foothills of the Cascade Mountains between Lake Washington and Puget Sound, Seattle is the largest city in the Pacific Northwest and one of the fastest growing in the country. Despite our rainy reputation, the city experiences mild temperatures year round and a beautiful summer season, making it a great place to explore the many unique neighborhoods and outdoor opportunities. As the city has grown, however, numerous challenges in the affordable housing landscape have surfaced. Neighborhoods are undergoing immense change, amplifying the disparity in wealth as brand new million dollar
homes appear right next to modest houses in need of critical maintenance. With limited affordable home repair options, longtime residents are facing pressure to leave their communities. One of Rebuilding Together Seattle's objectives is to preserve neighborhood diversity by mobilizing volunteers and community members to lead free home repairs for our
neighbors in need. When you join Rebuilding Together, you'll have the chance to affect change in your own backyard, as we strategically concentrate resources in neighborhoods to build safe homes and communities.

Thanks again for your interest in serving with Rebuilding Together AmeriCorps and making a difference in the homes and lives of people in your community.  If you have any questions about the program or technical difficulties with the application, please email me at jpermar@rebuildingtogether.org.

Have a great week,
