Repairing homes, revitalizing communities, rebuilding lives.
Collaboration with community partners helps an older couple stay warm and safe in Bernalillo, New Mexico
April 16, 2021
With financial support from two of our community partners, Rebuilding Together Sandoval County was able to help Joe and Juanita, an older couple, reduce their utility bills and increase the safety and comfort of their home. The couple had to defer much needed home repairs since their social security income is consumed by everyday expenses. As a result, the 50-year-old doors and windows in the home were in disrepair to the extent that they were mostly inoperable and driving up utility bills.

Ray Detig’s first monthly donation to Rebuilding Together National occurred just under two years ago, but his connection to the organization spans over multiple decades. Detig was initially introduced to Rebuilding Together (then Christmas in April) back in 1991 when he saw an advertisement in the newspaper. As a local resident he felt that volunteering was something he’d like to do to help his community. He quickly signed up and went out to work on a house which left a lasting impression.
