Safe at Home Volunteers Help Homeowners Live More Independently and Safely

Rebuilding Together Twin Cities believes that everyone should have a safe and healthy home. Our Safe at Home volunteers work on projects focused on improving the accessibility of the home, so that the home’s residents can live more safely and independently.  For example, Safe at Home volunteers Sam and Liz recently helped us finish a handicap-accessible first-level bathroom in a South Minneapolis home. The homeowner was wheelchair bound and had to take sponge baths because she could not access the second-floor bathroom where the shower was located.  The addition of a downstairs bathroom increased the homeowner’s independence and greatly improved her quality of life.  We are grateful to all of our Safe at Home volunteers for helping to improve the independence and safety of the people we serve!
