Description

Position Opening: Manager, Build Days and Special Projects

Do you like the idea of bringing safety and peace of mind to low-income, elderly, disabled and other at-risk members of our community? Want to put your contracting skills to work supporting local homeowners in-need? Put your general or expert repair and strong leadership skills to make our signature events successful.

 

As the go-to agency for free home repairs in San Mateo County and Northern Santa Clara County, Rebuilding Together Peninsula helps ensure vulnerable homeowners have safe homes in which to live and nonprofit agencies have safe facilities from which to serve the community. We seek a strong team player to manage approximately 40 volunteer team projects annually.

 

We believe a healthy community starts with a safe and healthy home. Since 1989, RTP has helped preserve affordable home ownership and maintain the diverse fabric of the peninsula by providing critical health and safety-related repairs. By harnessing the power of nearly 1000 volunteers twice a year in the spring and fall, we provide critical repairs for approximately 40 homeowners and nonprofits annually. We also provide more minor repairs and home renovations for approximately 100 homes.

 

Rebuilding Together Peninsula, with an operating budget of $3M, is one of the largest of over 100 affiliates of Rebuilding Together Inc., a national nonprofit. We’re passionate about our role helping preserve affordable homeownership and supporting families who turn to us for critical safety and health-related repair needs. We value the initiative and input of our staff to help best meet the community’s needs. Our efforts to preserve affordable home ownership, stabilize and revitalize local neighborhoods and enhance local pride and individual dignity are supported through partnerships and collaborations with government agencies, private businesses, skilled craftspeople, civic organizations, churches and community volunteers.
