Meet Our Team
We are a team of doers, movers, rebuilders, and makers. We find inspiration and joy in the value, possibilities, and stories of all the people and salvaged materials and we encounter.
The ReBuilding Center crew values teamwork, respect, creativity, innovation, learning, and sharing. Whether teaching classes, salvaging materials, helping guests in the store, or working at a computer, we are known for being a hard-working team that has just as much fun.
Our community of staff and board members, and the broader community we serve and call home, makes us who we are and powers all we do. If you haven’t met us yet, please come say hello or drop us a line! We’d love to meet you, learn how we can serve you, and welcome you to the RBC community.
Do you love reuse and building community as much as we do? Join our Team!
From developing new partnerships to maintaining records, our administrative staff works to support all aspects of the ReBuilding Center’s operations and mission to build community through reuse.
Up to one-half of material donations, including the majority of lumber, come to the ReBuilding Center through our free pick-up service. You’ll find our driving team all across the Portland Metro area, recovering and transporting materials from homes, businesses, and job sites to the ReBuilding Center store.
With a wide range of woodworking, carpentry, electrical, and plumbing knowledge, the ReBuilding Center’s Education team welcomes and helps hundreds of people per month develop practical skills through a wide range of fun, hands-on classes.
Whether it is stocking, pricing, unloading/loading, or greeting visitors, our store team works to maximize the salvage and reuse of building materials by helping divert reusable goods from landfills, and making the materials available to people of all income levels in our store.
