REPAIRING HOMES, REVITALIZING COMMUNITIES, REBUILDING LIVES.
Repairing homes, revitalizing communities, rebuilding lives.
We improve the homes and lives of low-income homeowners by providing free repair services and home improvements for those with the greatest need. Rebuilding Together enables them to remain in their homes and live in warmth, safety, dignity and independence.
Vision & Values
Our vision is safe homes and communities for everyone.
We revitalize communities and preserve affordable homeownership by providing free modifications and repairs, making homes safer, accessible, and more energy efficient. The improvements we make often give a much-needed spiritual lift to our neighbors who have fallen on hard times.
Who We Serve
We serve qualified homeowners with a focus on those who are most in need.
We typically serve low income homeowners with a focus on those who are elderly, living with a disability, families with children, and veterans in need. In addition, we also serve nonprofit organizations that are in need of facility repairs.
“We would like to convey our sincerest gratitude for our new roof…after many years of numerous patches, the roof was springing many new leaks and it was critical to tear it off. It was literally raining in the living room one morning, when a section of the front porch roof and ceiling came crashing down during a rainstorm. Rebuilding Together saved the house! You are simply an amazing organization.”
“What can I do or say? I can only pray daily for the group. I know that the Good Lord will reward each and everyone that made a change in my life and home. You have done amazing, wonderful and awesome things for me. May God bless and prosper you. You are a life changer — this letter cannot express my heart”
“I never could believe that people are so kind. I must be living right. Every one of them were such a joy! One by one our neighbors came over and said, ‘Who did this for you? It looks like you have a new house!’ I cried last night — I couldn’t help myself, I was so emotional. I felt such joy that people would take time to help us.”
RTNSC IN THE NEWS
“Although Rebuilding Together is a national organization, for the past 21 years the North Suburban Chicago chapter specifically has brought together hundreds in the community into a network of people that can be simply described as “neighbors helping neighbors.”
“Sometimes it’s hard to ask for help, but two local veterans in Zion found out last week that people really do want to help. The couple applied and qualified for the Sears Heroes at Home program through which they received help from Rebuilding Together to get their property back in shape.”
