Christina Boryk is the Executive Director of Rebuilding Together Dutchess County (RTDC), an organization dedicated to transforming the lives of low-income homeowners by improving the safety of their homes and revitalizing our region.

Under Ms. Boryk’s leadership, the organization has been honored with several awards of distinction, including the Dutchess County Economic Development Corporation Business Excellence Award and the Gateway to Entrepreneurial Tomorrows, Inc.'s Organization of the Year Award. With Ms. Boryk at the helm, RTDC was recognized nationally when it was selected as a Rebuilding Together Communities of Promise recipient in 2014. It was one of nine select affiliates to receive individualized coaching and support to help the organizations grow, develop and build capacity.
Ms. Boryk’s passion for volunteerism was fostered early in her life at Loyola University, Maryland, when she participated in an immersion trip to Mexico with fellow students, working in an orphanage to assist with building maintenance. This experience fostered Ms. Boryk’s executive leadership roles, which expand 20 years, and reflects her deep commitment to strengthening her community. She previously served as Executive Director of The Chamber Foundation, the Education Foundation of the Southern Dutchess Chamber of Commerce, with oversight of six education programs including Leadership Dutchess and Youth Leadership, two scholarships, and four annual fundraising events.
