Did you know that April is National Rebuilding Month? Nearly 40,000 volunteers will serve in more than 1,600 rebuild projects led by Rebuilding Together affiliates across the country this month.
Throughout April, Rebuilding Together affiliates and volunteers will serve veterans, older adults, low-income families with children and victims of disaster by providing them with a variety of critical home repairs, including: flooring repairs and replacement, weatherization repairs, roof and handrail replacements, accessibility modifications, painting, landscaping and other major home rehabilitations. The repairs are provided free of charge to the homeowners who, often faced with diminishing resources, must choose food and medicine over critical home repairs — choices that, over time, can lead to crumbling foundations, dangerously sagging roofs and windows and doors that can’t be securely shut.
In our community, Rebuilding Together Twin Cities is hosting several home repair projects and a nonprofit facility improvement project during National Rebuilding Month. We are proud to be part of this nationwide effort to improve the homes and lives of those in need during National Rebuilding Month!
