Habitat for Humanity SKC: Neighborhood Revitalization
 
 
 
Habitat has begun expanding our services from new homes into the areas of home repairs, rehabilitations, and other community development projects and partnerships. As a new model, this requires exploration, trial and error, relationship building, and enterprising ideas about how to best support the communities we serve. The Neighborhood Revitalization Specialist will be the legs, eyes, ears, heart, and hands on the ground in select communities, building our presence and opportunities to serve a wider population in partnership with other community organizations. This exciting position requires equal parts entrepreneurship and administrative strength, people skills and broad vision. Habitat for Humanity of Seattle-King County (HFHSKC)’s mission is to empower families, build community, & create hope through an aggressive home-building ministry. Our goal is to lay a foundation for a stronger community by working with people who are dedicated to building a better life for themselves. We depend on donated land, labor, money, & materials from individuals, faith communities, & local businesses. Volunteers of all skill levels work together with the homeowners, Habitat staff & AmeriCorps in a cooperative partnership to construct our homes. Hospitality is central to the HFHSKC AmeriCorps program – both in striving to provide stellar volunteer and family experiences that build community and change lives, and also in supporting our AmeriCorps members in a solid, developmental, enriching year of growth toward greater opportunities in the future. Our AmeriCorps are at the front lines of serving, recruiting, training, guiding, supporting, retaining, and recognizing volunteers – who provide 90% of the labor on the quality homes we offer low income families. The program requires a great deal of dedication as our AmeriCorps members are Ambassadors to our community, serving in physically and socially intensive roles while embodying the service ethic for which AmeriCorps stands.
