National Rebuilding Day
The application period for our regular repairs and home modifications has closed. Homeowners who applied for National Rebuilding Day assistance will be notified about their status by mid-December.
National Rebuilding Day is Saturday, April 27, 2013. We will be working on several homes and community buildings that day.
Many of our neighbors have worked all their lives and have been physically and financially able to maintain their homes in good condition. Now, due to illness, aging, economic hardships, or the loss of a spouse, they are unable to handle the repair work themselves. Their homes deteriorate or become unsafe. That's where Rebuilding Together Bergen County can help.
We make improvements that allow seniors to continue living independently in their own home. We help all our homeowners to live in safe, healthy surroundings while we build better communities in Bergen County. Repairs may include:

If you work for a non-profit organization in Bergen County and your facility needs repairs or renovations, download our Community Building Application here to be considered for assistance.
Rebuilding Together would like to work on multiple projects in a single neighborhood. We look for recommendations from community groups (block associations, senior centers, houses of worship, municipal groups) to help us find targeted areas (a 3- to 5-block area) with homeowners and perhaps a community building in need of our assistance. If your group would like to recommend and advocate for a particular neighborhood, please call us (201-447-8886) for more information and to receive a Target Community Application.
