Rebuilding Together 2016

2018 Volunteer Day is Saturday, April 14th!

About Rebuilding Together:

Rebuilding Together is a nonprofit, community-based partnership of volunteers from local government, businesses, and other nonprofits, that rehabilitate the homes of low-income elderly and disabled homeowners and improve neighborhoods.

On two April Saturdays each year, approximately 1,000 skilled and unskilled volunteers join together to make repairs to about 20 homes in a selected St. Joseph County neighborhood.  All repairs are completed at no cost to the homeowner.

Volunteer Info:

Any adult or group (under 18 requires adult supervision) can volunteer to assist in rehabilitating homes. No particular home repair skills are required. Volunteers need only come ready to work on Community Volunteer Day (held each April) from approximately 8:00am until the home is completed mid-afternoon. Individuals who have not been assigned a house may report to the Command Center that morning. Larger groups (5+ people) should contact Rebuilding Together before Community Volunteer Day so that a house assignment may be determined in advance.

Rebuilding Together will direct volunteers to a house, provide all the tools and supplies needed, give a boxed lunch, and have a post-event meal. Those familiar with construction and organizing work teams are encouraged to become a house captain, the person who manages the repair work at a home on Community Volunteer Day.

We hope you can assist us this year.  The need is great and the more hands that help, the more that can be done.  Please let us hear from you by March 30, 2018 so we can plan accordingly.
