Overview

Rebuilding Together completes home rehabilitation projects each April at no cost to the homeowner.  Repairs vary from yard clean-up and trash removal to minor repairs such as small carpentry jobs and painting walls to major skilled tasks such as roofing work and updating electrical and plumbing systems. Rebuilding Together does not provide emergency repairs.
