This past week, two of our AmeriCorps members, Kyle and Alina, traveled to North Carolina to take part in the Safe and Healthy Housing Summit. They joined AmeriCorps members from Rebuilding Together affiliates from across the country for this four day summit in partnership with NeighborWorks that focused on training the members in the seven principles of safe and healthy homes. They learned how to better assess a home to create a work scope that can be reasonably accomplished, while impacting the home in sustainable ways. Much of the training was hands-on, and they learned how to do many of the repairs that are essential to safe and healthy homes. Alina spent her time insulating an attic and crawl space, ripping out carpet, and fixing gutters. Kyle spent his time learning how to replace soffits and gutters. It was a great learning experience. Thanks to Rebuilding Together of the Triangle for hosting this summit!
