We are thrilled to welcome two new AmeriCorps Members: Alina Stevenson and Jessie Livingston!
Alina holds a Bachelor of Arts in History from Gustavus Adolphus College in Saint Peter, Minnesota. She recently completed a year of service through the AmeriCorps Vista program with Habitat for Humanity in Virginia, Minnesota. Through that position, Alina gained experience working with homeowners, volunteers and donors. Alina also works part-time as a gymnastics coach.
Jessie recently completed her studies at Oakton Community College in Des Plaines, Illinois. She brings a variety of experience to this position, including working as a preschool teacher, life guard and swim instructor and serving as a volunteer with both Habitat for Humanity and a dog shelter.
This is the sixth 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. Welcome to the team Alina and Jessie!
