About Rebuilding Together Baltimore
Rebuilding Together Baltimore has been working on Safe & Healthy Housing and Community Revitalization in Baltimore neighborhoods since 1989. We have assisted over 1,400 low-income homeowners in that time. In addition to helping individual homeowners, we also complete community benefit projects in our target neighborhoods which include public art projects, murals, community gardens, general community clean-up and more. As an AmeriCorps member with Rebuilding Together Baltimore, you will have the opportunity to experience the inner workings of a small nonprofit that is striving to make Baltimore a better place. You will also help build our capacity and continue to improve our services to the community.

Baltimore is quirky, which is part of why we love it. It's also rich with history and a great place to live and work. It's more affordable than many East Coast cities, which make living on an AmeriCorps income easier. "Smalltimore" is a term we use to describe the fact that people in Baltimore are connected in numerous ways. The nonprofit community in Baltimore is full of young professionals, many of whom are AmeriCorps alums. Our office is situated in the Govans area (which is also on of our target neighborhoods) and is within walking distance to cool restaurants and other culture. Baltimore has a great arts scene, and almost every weekend there are free or cheap opportunities to enjoy something new and creative. There are also numerous opportunities to experience and learn about history and historical landmarks. And Washington DC is a quick train ride away.

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,
