Our services focus on the elderly who have lived in their home and community for many years. This population is on the rise with approximately 10,000 baby boomers turning 65 every day. In 2018, we will be targeting our efforts in an area of five distinct neighborhoods that are part of the HUD Choice area. There are over 25 stakeholders working in these communities so our impact will be leveraged by the involvement of municipalities, hospitals, colleges and community groups.

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.
