Revitalizing Communities One Home at a Time
With years of experience in design and construction, Roshele Allison has undoubtedly gained valuable skills and created her own network of trustworthy contractors and industry professionals. While her knowledge and reliable team are utilized each day in her business, Roshele has taken it one step further, offering her expertise as a way to give back to the community.
For several years, Roshele has volunteered countless hours for Rebuilding Together Seattle (RTS). RTS is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that provides free home repairs to low income homeowners (particularly those who are elderly, disabled, or families with children), so they can live in warmth, safety, and independence.
“This is something that is close to my heart as I truly enjoy helping people make their homes safe and happy,” smiles Roshele.
The group’s major program event is Spring Rebuilding Day, held on the last Saturday of April. RTS partners with over 1,000 volunteers to complete roughly 20 projects throughout the greater Seattle area in one day. For over two years, Roshele has served as Project Manager for the Junior League of Seattle Sponsor group, executing all work scope plans for the Junior League’s project. From sourcing donated materials, equipment, labor and carpenters to organizing 80+ volunteers, it’s a huge job that commences in one beautiful day of organized chaos.
“Once plans are in place, it’s amazing what we can get done in one day, and the difference in someone’s life we can make,” explains Roshele. “We worked with a couple who was wheelchair bound–they watched us through the window during the entire project. When we were done, the look on their faces was worth more than words can say.”
In addition to managing a Spring Rebuilding Day project, Roshele serves on the RTS Site Preview Team, a group of volunteers that visit applicants’ homes to help determine program eligibility.
“It’s incredibly rewarding to take skills we’ve gained in our careers, and be able to use those to give back and make a real difference,” says Roshele.
With your help, Roshele and RTS can continue preserve and revitalize communitiesone home, one neighborhood, one community at a time.
