About Rebuilding Together Montgomery County
Montgomery County, Maryland is a diverse community that draws people from all over the world to live and work near the nation's capital. The cost of living is extremely high, and while Montgomery County is ranked among the 20 wealthiest counties in the United States, RTMC clients have an average annual income of less than $20,000. As clients make difficult decisions about which necessities to prioritize their income on, home repairs often go unaddressed. By serving as a resource to make repairs for local low-income homeowners, RTMC ensures clients can continue to live in safe and healthy homes. In an area where the cost of living includes high rents, RTMC's services help prevent clients from losing what may be the only affordable housing option available.

Through their direct involvement with clients and community partners, the AmeriCorps positions will have a significant impact on the local community. Each member will have opportunities to interact with local residents daily, with the goal of improving the application intake process. The AmeriCorps Community Partner Coordinator will drive an increase in local awareness and application intake, and in turn the AmeriCorps Client Service Coordinator will process applications, communicate with applicants, and help provide a smooth client services process. This collaborative approach will allow the rest of the program team to more efficiently and effectively provide home repair services to clients.

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 spatterson@rebuildingtogether.org.

Have a great week,
