Today marks the first day of National Rebuilding Month–a month-long call to service that [Re]Builders have been celebrating every April since 1973! During National Rebuilding Month, Rebuilding Together affiliates and volunteers will serve veterans, older adults, families and neighbors recovering from natural disasters by providing them with a variety of essential health and safety home repairs. 

Last April, Rebuilding Together affiliates worked with more than 15,000 volunteers to repair close to 800 homes and more than 100 community centers nationwide, positively impacting the lives of over 1,400 local residents. This year will be no different, as our affiliates are gearing up for a month of service in their communities. The repairs Rebuilding Together affiliates will provide are free of charge to neighbors in need, who are often faced with diminishing resources and must choose food and medicine over critical home repairs. 

“Many of the neighbors in our communities are living in unsafe and unhealthy homes, unable to afford the essential home repairs they desperately need,” said Maureen Carlson, Interim President and CEO of Rebuilding Together. “This April, thousands of Rebuilding Together volunteers will come together in service for their neighbors as a part of our annual month-long call to service, National Rebuilding Month.”

Each year, National Rebuilding Month culminates on National Rebuilding Day–the last Saturday in April. This year, National Rebuilding Day is on Saturday, April 27, and will engage volunteers to complete repairs on homes, nonprofit facilities and community spaces to bring immediate, transformational change to neighborhoods across America on the same day. 

Rebuilding Together works year-round, but our efforts are amplified in April to get the word out about this important work and help neighbors in need. Interested in getting involved this National Rebuilding Month?
