About Rebuilding Together Peninsula
Since 1989, Rebuilding Together Peninsula has served low-income homeowners, as well as community facilities serving low-income communities, in one of the most expensive places to live in the entire country. 18 of the top 100 most expensive housing zip codes in America are located in our service area, including the #1 most expensive zip code for Atherton, with a median home sales price of $4.95 million in 2017. As one of the largest Rebuilding Together affiliates, we are beneficiaries of extreme wealth in our region, and actively partner with our volunteers, donors, and other nonprofits, businesses, and local government in addressing the income disparity that we witness daily through our work in the community. We serve two Counties, 24 cities and towns, and an incredibly diverse ethnic and socio-economic population, working in urban and rural agricultural areas, as well as every type of home environment from RVs and mobile homes to townhomes and single family homes. Our work with community facilities includes everything from family daycares to homeless shelters to Senior Centers.
Living stipend $1400 for entire term

Rebuilding Together works to strengthen the lives of our most vulnerable communities by providing low-income homeowners with critical home repairs, accessibility modifications and energy-efficient upgrades. Rebuilding Together's local affiliates and nearly 100,000 volunteers complete about 10,000 rebuild projects each year. We believe that everyone deserves to live in a safe and healthy home. As we help to stabilize and revitalize neighborhoods across the country, our lasting impact extends beyond each home.
On average, our homeowners live at or below the poverty level and are forced to choose between food, medicine and shelter needs. We provide these critical home repairs at no cost to qualified homeowners. Rebuilding Together is often the last resort to preserving their homeownership – their only personal asset.
