About Rebuilding Together Northeast Ohio
Rebuilding Together Northeast Ohio will touch more 1400 low-income homeowners in the next twelve months, made possible through the work of our AmeriCorps members. Most of our clients are living in substandard housing lacking adequate roofs, plumbing, electrical, accessibility, or other health and safety related systems. Yet, with existing capacity and resources, we are only able to touch a very small percentage of the need that exists today. Recognizing this need, and using Rebuilding Together's unique community revitalization partnership and delivery model, we have the opportunity to play a leading role in meeting this emerging challenge within our service area. Our affiliate is rapidly building capacity and networking with government and community organizations of all types in an effort to create community based partnerships which empower volunteers and persons in need, while leveraging the public and private resources available. Our goal is to be a leading agency in addressing the housing and community involvement aspects of this and to be known locally, regionally, and nationally as an agency which provides real and lasting solutions at a high level of quality.

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,
