Rebuilding Together provides critical repairs through the work of volunteers and donations of sponsors – at no cost to the homeowner. Every $1 we put into a home is leveraged to provide nearly $5 in added value, thanks to donations of goods and services from corporate partners and skilled trade associations.
The scope of work varies according to the needs of the homeowner and the condition of the home. We can provide home modifications to help seniors age in place. This might include grab bars, tub or shower seats, raised toilets, additional hand rails, fall prevention modifications, wheelchair ramps, widened doorways, lever handles and more.
Our energy-efficiency and weatherization modifications help homeowners save money on utility bills while keeping their homes warmer in winter and cooler in summer.
With our partners from Electricians Local 164, we repair and upgrade electrical work and install smoke- and carbon monoxide detectors where needed.
On a national scale, Rebuilding Together serves our target homeowners through the following national programs and events:
National Rebuilding Day
Our signature event, National Rebuilding Day, occurs on the last Saturday of April. Across the country, Rebuilding Together affiliates plan projects that celebrate the organization’s mission and bring national attention to the plight of America’s low-income homeowners and the communities in which they live.
The national impact generated on this day is strong, with volunteers completing more than 4,000 home and community center projects every year across the country. Nationally, over the course of the year, volunteers work on 10,000 homes.
On a local level, Rebuilding Together Bergen County also experiences high-impact success:
