Joni Keaton – Rebuilding Together Montgomery Country
Joni Keaton is originally from Rockville, Maryland, and returned to the area after graduating in 2020 with dual degrees in International Studies and Ballet Performance from the University of Oklahoma. She began serving as an AmeriCorps member at Rebuilding Together Montgomery County shortly after, dedicating a year of service to help support RTMC’s mission of repairing homes, revitalizing communities, and rebuilding lives. She joined the team full-time in September of his year as the Development & Communications Coordinator and is proud to help continue this important work.
Rebuilding Together Montgomery County (RTMC) was founded in 1990 with a ‘neighbors helping neighbors’ approach of providing free home repairs and accessibility modifications to low-income homeowners in Montgomery County. Many of the homeowners served are seniors, veterans, people with disabilities, single parents, and members of marginalized communities who would not otherwise be able to remain safely and independently at home. Working in partnership with local businesses, organizations, and volunteers, RTMC strives to ensure the right to safe housing for Montgomery County’s most vulnerable residents.
