About the organization
Montgomery County, Maryland is a diverse community that draws people from all over the world to live and work near the nation's capital. While the cost of living is extremely high, RTMC clients have an average annual income of less than $20,000. As clients make difficult decisions about which necessities to prioritize their income on, home repairs often go unaddressed. By serving as a resource to make repairs for local low-income homeowners, RTMC ensures clients can continue to live in safe and healthy homes.
Through direct involvement with clients and community partners, the AmeriCorps member will have a significant impact on the local community. They will have opportunities to interact with local residents daily, with the goal of improving the application intake process. The AmeriCorps Project Coordinator will help to manage the repair process from start to finish.
