WELCOME TO REBUILDING TOGETHER FREDERICKSBURG

FREE HOME REPAIR

FREE HOME REPAIR

WHO WE ARE

Rebuilding Together-Fredericksburg’s (RTF) mission is to preserve and revitalize houses and communities, assuring that low-income homeowners – from the elderly and disabled to families with children – live in warmth, safety, and independence. In partnership with communities, our goal is to make a sustainable impact.

We make this impact through providing necessary repairs and improvements free of charge to existing homeowners. This necessary work often includes home modifications such as wheelchair ramps and grab bars and repairs to roofing, plumbing, and electrical systems. Our goal is to provide a warm, safe and dry environment for low-income homeowners, enabling them to live independently and with dignity.

WHO WE HELP

35% of homeowners are “house poor,” meaning they struggle to pay for basic necessities after paying their mortgage payment and utilities. More and more families are placed in the position of choosing between vital necessities such as food or medicine and a roof that does not leak. Disabled homeowners cannot afford the modifications that allow them to “age in place” and remain in their own homes.

Rebuilding Together works to ensure that as many of those families as possible do not have to make these difficult choices. Individual families are referred to us through neighborhood associations, churches, synagogues, community organizations and service groups or by self-referral. Non-profit facilities are also eligible for our services.

WHAT WE DO

Low-income, elderly and disabled homeowners and families with children often have no place to turn when the roof beings to leak or the front steps crumble. Our goal is to preserve these houses and neighborhoods and assure a warm, safe and dry home for people in need. Home ownership stabilizes and strengthens communities.

WHEN WE WORK

While many affiliates work throughout the year to rehabilitate homes and provide related services to communities, most of our national volunteer efforts culminate on National Rebuilding Day, typically helped the last Saturday in April. Legions of volunteers come together to rehabilitate homes and non-profit facilities. Homeowners and volunteers work together to preserve and revitalize the communities in which they live.

WHO VOLUNTEERS

Anyone can volunteer! Rebuilding Together needs people with many talents and abilities – from people who can help scrape paint to those who are trained craftsmen. Business executives, students, bus drivers, politicians and police officers pitch in annually across America to help build better communities. Tradespeople are always in demand and thousands of carpenters, plumbers, electricians, roofers and others with special skills donate their time.
