Construction Contractor as Board Member for Affordable Housing
4 people are interested
We are a growing charity focused on creating affordable homes in the San Francisco Bay Area. We are in need of a leader with construction experience to become a member of the board to help with our objective of building as many affordable housing units as possible.
Our current goal is to build 8 to 12 units in Sonoma County by 2020 with the county's recent Cottage Housing Development provision.
We are 100% volunteers with hopes of transitioning into a fully-functioning organization with staff.
Strategy formulation skill is a major plus. Until now, this project has been the brain-child of the CEO. We need someone who can provide guidance with execution of our business plan, and connect us to resources around the North Bay area.
No additional volunteer opportunities at this time.
About CARE ASSOCIATION
1285 Folsom Street, San Francisco, CA 94103, US
Care Association plans, develops, and implements innovative strategies to alleviate economic burdens on lower- and middle-income households. We serve households in the United States that pay more than 30% of their gross income on housing or are transient because of lack of affordable housing. With the Care For Us web platform, we aim first to establish connections between households that are unable to compete in inflated real estate markets and homeowners who prefer to offer housing on their own terms. Secondly, we aim to connect and offer goods and services to those in need. Thirdly, we curate information and provide links to resources to inspire and enrich users’ experience.
Care Association operates by its motto, "Care is Kind. " While rising housing costs, rising education costs, and limited governmental progress suffocate the finances of millions of Americans, Care Association endeavors to alleviate hardships and aims to reduce the gap between those who have and those who don’t by providing a platform that enables care. Our pilot project is the CareForUs.us website, which aims to enable homeowners to find tenants to fill affordable vacancies without placing an ad. Allowing homeowners to get to know prospective tenants before signing a lease provides a more secure outlook, enabling them to consider reducing rent rates to accommodate lower incomes.
Care Association has provided goods and services to the public by volunteering time, expenses, and expertise.
Our activities have included:
- Providing donated items to people and nonprofit organizations in need of them, such as used books for families and skills-learning tools for enrichment programs
- Public workshops teaching emotional self-management skills
- Advocacy for affordable housing
We have more than 50 years of combined experience in computer technology in the fields of publishing, marketing, website and content development, and systems administration. With our experience, we put technology into service for the good of humankind.
We'll work with your schedule.
