Marathon Oil Grant Supports Five Ramps

We want to send a huge THANK YOU to Marathon Oil for providing us with a grant that made it possible for us to build five wheelchair ramps for low-income homeowners who are older adults and/or living with a disability!

We helped homeowners like Karen, who is 61, and shares her home with her daughter, age 32. Both Karen and her daughter struggle with physical disabilities. They are both employed and love their home, but needed an exterior ramp to be able to come and go independently and safely. The home’s stairs were too deep and short, making them difficult to navigate safely and increasing the likelihood of a fall. With the funding provided by Marathon, we were thrilled to be able to provide them with a ramp so they can remain in their home.

Thank you for supporting this important work!

Volunteer for our Safe at Home Program

You can make an immediate difference for a senior or individual living with a disability by volunteering for our Safe at Home Program!

This program provides minor home safety or accessibility modifications (grab bars, handrails, and much more). Volunteer projects are small-scale and can be completed by two to four volunteers in one day.

Handy-person and light carpentry skills are preferred, but many tasks can be learned through training and experience with on-site installation.

If you are interested in volunteering, please contact Tom at!

Welcome Sharlett Glidden to the Team

We are thrilled to welcome Sharlett Glidden to the Rebuilding Together Minnesota Team as an AmeriCorps Project Coordinator in Southwest Minnesota!

Sharlett was born in Jamaica and lived there for 15 years before coming to Minnesota. She wrote, “I am honored for the opportunity of becoming a member of AmeriCorps…I have spent my adult life so far serving in the non-profit world, which fuels my passion for helping people at the disadvantage of not being able to help themselves. I am a mother of a little girl who cartwheels in spaces that one may find impossible to perform a cartwheel and employed full-time worker.  Some of the things that bring me joy are shopping, eating, helping others, and traveling. My goal is to use my skills to serve honorably and humbly with AmeriCorps.”

Welcome to the Team Sharlett!
