ABOUT US

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

History

In 1972 a group of volunteers in Midland, Texas, decided to devote one day in April to repairing and sprucing up the homes of their low-income, disabled, and elderly neighbors. “Why, this is like Christmas in April,” they were told. The spirit of giving spread to local affiliates across the country.

Christmas in April St. Joseph County began in 1989. Following the lead of the national organization, the local Board of Directors voted to change its name to Rebuilding Together, St. Joseph County in 2002. Over the organization’s history, nearly 30,000 volunteers have donated their time and skills to rehabilitate 650 homes, with repairs valued at over $11 million, in South Bend.

Thank you to our community partners!

Rebuilding Together succeeds based on its partnerships.  Program funding and donations, in terms of volunteer hours, materials, and money, come from the City of South Bend; the St. Joseph Valley Building and Construction Trades Council; other trade contractors; the Home Builders Association; local businesses, churches, and synagogues; local charitable foundations; Bethel College, Indiana University South Bend, the University of Notre Dame, and Saint Mary’s College; the South Bend Community School Corporation; and from the community at large.  This support allows all repairs to be made at no cost to the homeowner.

Rebuilding Together salutes its house sponsors, the companies and organizations that have underwritten the complete cost of a home rehabilitation.
