FAIRBANKS, Alaska (KTVF) The CEO of the Fairbanks Rescue Mission will be leaving his post October 25th, according to a press release from earlier this week.
Rodney Gaskins has helped develop various programs for the rescue mission and employed over 20 new staff members.
Gaskins has also headed the MyPlace Rapid Rehousing Program which cooperates with the Fairbanks Housing and Homeless Coalition.
He also developed the Green Collar Jobs Program which now contracts with the Fairbanks North Star Borough to manage recycling services for the Interior.
When Habitat for Humanity closed its doors in Fairbanks, they entrusted their properties to FRM knowing that Rodney’s expertise and heart for people in need would make the best possible use of those properties.
The result is the construction of a 10 cabin permanent supportive housing unit complex named the Joshua Community that is scheduled to open Fall of 2020. Many volunteer teams annually travel from several states to help with site preparation and construction. Two additional properties are slated for future development.
Rodney Gaskins will have completed 13 years of service in his position in the Fairbanks community.
