  • Alumni story
    Tina L. Hayes 2012 2014 Gainesville, Florida

    I do have to mention that I am an AmeriCorps State/National Alumni. I realize that this site may only apply to VISTA Alums, however I did not want to miss out on sharing a snapshot of my experience. I served with Rebuilding Together, Inc. a nationwide nonprofit organization with a mission of "Bringing volunteers and communities together to improve the homes and lives of low-income homeowners." I served at the Gainesville, Florida affiliate. My titles were AmeriCorps State/National CapacityCorps Member, Volunteer/Project Site Coordinator for Rebuilding Together North Central Florida 2012-2014 (now that's a mouthful!). I served for 2 years, repairing and rebuilding homes for homeowners that could not afford the much-needed critical home repair that was endangering the lives of them and their families. When I completed my AmeriCorps terms, I continued to serve the organization as a permanent staff member until I relocated. I am currently serving as an AmeriCorps VISTA in Pennsylvania.

    Thanks for looking! Photography by me, Tina L Hayes. Enjoy! If I am not able to upload more than one picture, I'll try to upload more in another post if I am allowed.
