Meet the Team

Caleb Marshall, Executive Director

"I love seeing the personal interactions between appreciative homeowners and caring volunteer partners." 

Caleb joined RTS in February 2013 after seven years at KaBOOM!, a national nonprofit with a mission to create great play spaces and increase children’s access to play.  Along with three years of service in the Peace Corps, Caleb brings experience in volunteer and project management, community engagement, and program development.  Caleb believes strongly in the capacity of volunteers to strengthen our communities, and bringing them together to address our basic human need for housing security in order to grow and sustain Seattle in an equitable way.

In his free time, Caleb enjoys the many outdoor activities our area offers, as well as more sedentary pursuits such as watching football and playing board games.

Mike Lahoda, Director of Programs

"My favorite part about our programs is seeing a community transformed in just one day."

Mike moved to Seattle after graduating college to serve as an AmeriCorps Member with City Year working with at risk students in Seattle schools. After two years of tutoring and leading volunteers, he grew to love Seattle’s unique and diverse culture and planned to continue serving the community, joining RTS in July 2013. Mike greatly appreciates the ability to be a part of so many transformational community projects that promote safe and healthy housing in Seattle. He is motivated by the incredible homeowners, passionate volunteers, and dedicated staff at RTS.

Outside of work, Mike enjoys playing the banjo, riding his bike, and searching for Seattle’s best sandwiches.

Nathan Craft, Development Coordinator

“The best part of nonprofit development is knowing that every donation is making a difference in the lives of people in our community.”

Nathan graduated from the University of Alabama (Roll Tide!) and shortly thereafter started working for United Cerebral Palsy of West Alabama as their Development Coordinator. After planning and executing UCPWA’s biggest fundraiser of the year, the West Alabama State Fair, he and his fiancé decided to pursue their dreams of moving out west to Seattle. Since living in Seattle Nathan has worked for Nyhus Communications and Upaya Social Ventures. At Upaya Social Ventures Nathan led the planning and development of their annual gala. Nathan appreciates wearing many different hats to raise funds and plan events that allow RTS to further its impact in Seattle. He is fulfilled by working with RTS to make a tangible impact on the people and communities we serve.

In his spare time, Nathan enjoys playing any sport with a ball, working out, and searching for the next best podcast or documentary.
