National Rebuilding Month

image26

National Rebuilding Month is an annual call to service during the month of April and is the epitome of Rebuilding Together’s vision: helping to provide a safe and healthy home for every person. This effort, led by our affiliates across the nation, shines a spotlight on the increasing need to provide low-income homeowners with safe and healthy housing. National Rebuilding Month culminates with National Rebuild Day, the last Saturday in April ever year, and engages volunteers in a concerted effort to complete repairs on homes, nonprofit facilities and community spaces to bring immediate, large-scale impact to communities across America on the same day. The event has been recognized by community leaders and national corporate partners.

National Rebuild Day

Every year on the last Saturday of April, Rebuilding Together Southeast Michigan joins affiliates across the country to provide free home repairs to low-income homeowners who are elderly, disabled, military veterans, and families with children who are unable to repair their homes themselves. Thousands of community volunteers nationwide fix-up the homes and yards of those in need so that they can live in a safer, more comfortable and pleasant environment. Locally, we have around 1,400 community volunteers who form community development teams to help around 50 homeowners every year.

Southeast Michigan Rebuild Days

event_2

Due to the fact that homeowners have home rehabilitation needs outside of the month of April, our Southeast Michigan Rebuild Days provide the same model of service as our National Rebuild programs but take place throughout the rest of the Spring, Summer, and Fall. Qualifying applicants who were not able to be served on National Rebuild Day are eligible for this program contingent on the availability of funding and volunteers. These projects typically take place over one or two days with a volunteer team that sponsors the project.

* General qualifications include being low income, owning your home, being current on mortgage and taxes, and having active homeowners insurance.

Handyman Program

This community service program is designed to address the occasional single or small number of minor housing repairs that can be done by one or two volunteers in a few hours. For example, a faucet or light fixture replaced.

* General qualifications include being low income, owning your home, being current on mortgage and taxes, and having active homeowners insurance.
