Calling Site Supervisors for our Subfloor Rebuild Program!

Since waters receded from New York after Superstorm Sandy, our All Hands volunteers have been on the ground, doing what they do so well—helping communities recover. Each day, we send out hardworking teams to homes and buildings in need of gutting, mold treatment, and rebuilding. Each afternoon as our teams leave, relieved homeowners express their heartfelt thanks for the difference we have made.

Now, we’re starting an exciting program installing subfloors in Superstorm Sandy-affected Long Island. Many houses have had their flooded floors removed during gutting, and other steps of rebuilding, like rewiring or reinstalling HVAC systems can’t proceed until subfloors are back in. We need energetic Site Supervisors with construction experience to lead teams of volunteers performing this crucial part of the recovery process.
