    Position title: AmeriCorps VISTA ReStore Development Coordinator

    Where: Portland, OR

    Description:  This member would help us achieve our primary goal of raising funds for HFH by working to increase the amount of projects for our Building Material Recovery program BMR. BMR is a deconstruction program to save building materials from going to the landfill either by diverting them for sale at the ReStore or for reuse in a Habitat home. It is essential that we spend the time and energy needed to develop relationships with new potential donors and bring more stock into our stores. This position would work directly with our BMR Manager to upgrade our systems, outreach for new sources of projects, and collaborate with the city and county to assess new sources through their new online deconstruction platform. This affects the community on a few levels; one is that by providing more income for the building of HFH homes we help provide low income housing opportunities for families in need. We also divert over 8 million pounds of materials from the landfill each year; saving valuable resources, and energy. We also are able to provide low cost materials to families that may otherwise lack the resources to improve their homes.
