OUR BOARD

Steve Reade

PRESIDENT

As a retired attorney who has recently relocated to Reno, I was eager to find a way to use my legal skills to benefit my new community and also to connect with and learn more about this community and its people. [Re]Building Together Northern Nevada provides the perfect opportunity to do both, as well as to see the tangible results of my efforts. Safe and comfortable housing is vital but often out of reach to many. RTNNV has the potential to make a major contribution in this area. I am excited to be involved in the launch of this organization and to see it grow from the ground up.

VICE PRESIDENT

I was drawn to RTNNV's mission of creating SROI - Social Return on Investment. The benefits of no cost housing repairs for seniors, veterans, and low-income homeowners are a sound investment which creates significant social and economic returns for our Northern Nevada communities. These repairs strengthen our communities by increasing self-sufficiency, reducing hospitalizations and preserving legacy neighborhoods while improving the overall quality of life, health and wealth of our neighbors.

TREASURER

As a commercial investment real estate broker in northern Nevada for the past 17 years, I have witnessed the gradual disappearance of market rate workforce housing in our region, especially in apartments. I was attracted to the mission of the RTNNV as soon as I heard about it, as the concept of helping the needy elderly stay in their home is such a basic human component of dignity and independence. I look forward to participating on the Finance Committee and to referring contractor buddies to join me in giving back to our community.

I became a [Re]Builder after being introduced to RTNNV by a former coworker.  He knew I was a DIY project person based on my Facebook posts, the posts are always either a project I am working on or food I am preparing.  I am an avid DIYer, constantly learning and adding to my skills.  I was very excited to find out that I could apply those skills and help others at the same time.  I am a banker during the day, so now I am applying my banker skills with the Finance committee and my weekend DIY project skills to the Home Projects committee.  Working on my first project in April made me realize I was in the right place when we saw the smiles on the family’s faces when we were done.

DIRECTOR

I have been aware for many years that safe and affordable housing is a growing challenge all over our country and especially in Nevada.  I’m retired now and looking for more ways to invest my time and talents to benefit our community.  Providing assistance to neighbors who need help to live in their home safely as they age is a perfect means to that end.  It feels good to be a [Re]Builder!

Sometimes a small repair can improve someone's day-to-day quality of life. Giving my time and construction law skill set will hopefully make many people have a huge improvement in the quality of their lives.

DIRECTOR

I choose to be a [re]builder because giving back to the community where we have lived for over 50 years and raised our family is so important to me.  Helping people stay in their homes creates a safe, welcoming environment for residents of northern Nevada.
