AmeriCorps Job Perfect Fit for Brandi

Brandi Gulick, our new AmeriCorps Construction Crew Leader, found the perfect job for her skills and heart for people. Her father is in the construction field so she learned the trade early on and she has a passion for helping people.

“I grew up with framing and drywalling,” she said. Her dad is proud that Brandi is working on our construction sites, building alongside volunteers and future homebuyers. “He bought me a tool belt when I started,” she said.

Wants to give back

Brandi joined our team because she enjoys helping people. “I had a rough patch but came out on the other side and I want to give back.”

When Brandi is not working on one of our build sites, she’s busy with her seven “amazing” kids ( six boys and a daughter) and is almost done earning her degree in Christian-based psychology.

Brandi looks forward to coming to work every day.

“I love working here. The volunteers and staff all teach me something and have so much to offer. It’s amazing to watch a house take shape!

What’s the best part of the job?

“Working with the families (future homebuyers),” Brandi says without hesitation. “This program gives them hope. I love to see the hope in their faces because they know what’s at the end. “
