What We Do
Rebuilding Together believes in a safe and healthy home for every person. This means that we believe disabled and aging homeowners should be able to remain in their homes for as long as possible. We believe that homeowners displaced by natural disaster will get back into safe housing with help from the community. We believe that our nation’s veterans with disabilities deserve safe and accessible homes. Rebuilding Together believes we can preserve affordable homeownership and revitalize communities by providing free home modifications and repairs, making homes safer, more accessible and more energy efficient.
IMPACT OF COVID-19 - SPECIFIC NEEDS:
During times like these we must continue to care for one another and protect one another, especially our older neighbors. The spread of COVID-19 has made our work more challenging, but we will persevere. Our work remains critical as we help our most vulnerable neighbors shelter in place. Rebuilding Together’s safe and healthy home approach means we remove trip hazards, allergens and asthma triggers from homes in the community. As our healthcare system is under extreme pressure, that work remains critically important. Long-term, as we face a possible economic downturn, the need for Rebuilding Together’s critical home repair services will be needed more than ever.
We are communicating with our neighbors in need to ensure they remain safe as they shelter in place by launching our Emergency Repair Program.
What Can You Do?
Please consider making a donation to help us repair collapsing roofs, install HVAC systems before warm weather, and install hot water heaters and other urgent repairs.
We are currently looking for skilled volunteers who can help us close out existing projects. Skilled volunteers need to have previous experience with home repairs and are comfortable working in and around a home. If you are interested, please email our program manager, Allen at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are also hosting a virtual build along October 3rd, please see the event listing below!
