Volunteer opportunity posted by: Rebuilding Together Seattle
Posted on: January 8, 2013
Rebuilding Together Seattle (RTS) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that brings communities and volunteers together to help low income homeowners live in warmth, safety, and independence. We provide free home repairs to qualifying homeowners who are senior citizens (65+), people with disabilities, veterans, or families with children (under the age of 18) living between Everett and Tukwila (North/South) and Lake WA and Puget Sound (East/West).
What is the Safe at Home Program?
The Safe at Home (SAH) is a year-round program at RTS that provides clients with repairs at their homes outside of major rebuilding days. Common examples of projects include installing grab bars, hand rails, smoke detectors, light bulbs, kitchen appliances, etc. or fixing/replacing doors, locks, or other one-time repairs. Depending on available program funding, RTS also considers larger "single" projects such as building ramps, decks, installing a new furnace or appliance, and small volunteer group projects.
What are qualities of a SAH volunteer?
What does the commitment look like?
Each SAH member completes the number of projects that is feasible for their schedule. The RTS Staff understands that volunteers have full-time jobs, families, and other personal and professional commitments; we appreciate anything you are able to give! With that said, RTS does expect that if a volunteer signs on to the SAH repair team, they will take initiative and sign up for projects as often as is feasible, with a minimum of 4 projects a year.
