Our People

Our people are our greatest asset.

Focused passionate teams help us reach our full potential which is why we invest in people and give them a chance to do what they do best every day – make a real difference (and have a great time doing it).

Every day we achieve remarkable results in the work we do. We are privileged to be involved with meaningful projects that revitalize rural Florida and afford our board, staff and volunteers experiences that enrich their personal outlook on life.

We’re passionate about making life better for working families. But don’t just take our word for it. Meet some of the people that help make Rural Neighborhoods the leading charitable organization it is today.
