Rebuilding Together Washington DC is a local affiliate of Rebuilding Together, a national organization that includes 166 affiliates serving 500 communities nationwide. Rebuilding Together’s national headquarters was launched in 1988 with a commitment to spread the program to every state.
Volunteer teams rehabilitate homes for low-income elderly and disabled homeowners, Veterans, families with children, and for nonprofit facilities such as schools, shelters, and 501(c)(3) community service organizations. Repairs help those who would be otherwise unable to make them (for financial and/or physical reasons) to continue living independently in warmth and safety and to age in place.
How We Do It
All work is done by volunteers at no cost to the homeowner or facility. Corporations and other groups raise funds and provide sponsorship fees to cover the cost of materials and skilled labor.
