The ReBuilding Center of Our United Villages

Nonprofit or community organization

Last modified: October 24, 2013, 11:31 PM


Our United Villages' mission: To inspire people to value and discover existing resources to strengthen the social and environmental vitality of communities.

The ReBuilding Center, a project of Our United Villages, is a vibrant resource working to strengthen the environmental, economic, and social fabric of local communities. Founded by volunteers in 1998, The ReBuilding Center carries the region's largest volume of used building and remodeling materials. It provides resources that make home repairs affordable to everyone, with the goal of promoting the reuse of salvaged and reclaimed materials. Three hundred visitors come to The ReBuilding Center every day to browse the ever-changing inventory that includes sinks, tubs, tile, lumber, doors, windows, trim and much more.

In addition to the reuse warehouse, the Community Legacy Program of Our United Villages recognizes and promotes that every person can make a positive difference for the benefit of all. Our Sharing Ideas events and Legacy Stories provide a platform for increasing awareness about how people are actively engaged in strengthening the social fabric of their community. We provide free tools and resources to assist people who seek pathways for achieving more vibrant, resilient and equitable communities.

Our United Villages also includes DeConstruction Services, a sustainable alternative to conventional demolition, a free-pick up service, numerous volunteer opportunities, donations of used building materials for community projects, as well as ReFind Education for workshops and classes on how to safely and creatively work with used building materials.
