We are thrilled to welcome Jacob Ames as our new Accessibility Program Manager & Volunteer Engagement Coordinator!

As a CapacityCorps member last year, Jacob learned a lot about Rebuilding Together, construction, and the general flow of a work site and the organization. With a year of experience, he hopes to help guide the incoming CapacityCorps members, as well as streamline and improve the Safe at Home program.

Jacob participated in the CapacityCorps alumni event Building a Healthier Neighborhood hosted by Rebuilding Together Baltimore in September and learned about how other affiliates run their operations. Rebuilding Together Twin Cities is one of the larger affiliates, and he sees a lot of exciting opportunities to help more homeowners, engage more volunteers, and revitalize more neighborhoods.

“Rebuilding Together and CapacityCorps helped me a lot in terms of guiding my post-college career. I am more than excited to continue working with Rebuilding Together Twin Cities and helping more homeowners in need in the metro Twin Cities.”
