  • Promote a safe place where people thrive, a neighborhood the world calls home.
  • Build neighborhood capacity to enhance quality of life in Rainier Beach as well as to address critical issues threatening the welfare of Rainier Beach residents.

Management Structure:

Day to day operations are managed on a volunteer and availability basis

As co-chair Gregory Davis functions as a project manager and spends approximately 5-10 hours per week coordinating contractor activity, financial, public relation functions and grant writing. Co-chair David Sauvion keeps track of scheduled meetings, agendas. As an architect, his focus leans naturally to the work done with S-CORE around Housing Affordability and Comprehensive Plan as well as advocating for the implementation of a Food Innovation District. RBAC is governed by a Board of Directors. Each Board member lends their influence to RB Coalition via their public service activity (which is extensive). They also step in to support strategic relationships, advise on strategy and grant proposals. RBAC has no employees, it contracts essential functions out, in particular, management of its strategy, online assets and youth civic engagement coordination duties that arise through grants. Bylaws direct the steering committee to  meet 4 times per year where financials are reviewed. On monthly basis steering committee members receive information about RBAC and other neighborhood activity.
