Over the last year, Rebuilding Together Twin Cities was fortunate to have Jacob Ames and Steve Abrams serve as our AmeriCorps Project Coordinators and New Sector Alliance RISE Fellow Dan Frankenfeld serve as our Accessibility Coordinator.

This is the ninth year that Rebuilding Together has been awarded an AmeriCorps grant through the Corporation for National and Community Service.  The goal of the AmeriCorps CapacityCorps program is to build the capacity of grassroots Rebuilding Together programs so they can be more sustainable, effective, and efficient in helping homeowners in need, and the AmeriCorps program plays an important role in our ability to help low-income homeowners in our community.  This is also the second year that we have worked with the New Sector Alliance RISE Fellow program.
