Neighbors Helping Neighbors

I recently found out that Wisconsin is the number one state for fall-related deaths in the country. I immediately thought about Rebuilding Together Fox Valley and what we can do to change that. As a Wisconsin resident and the executive director of Rebuilding Together Fox Valley, I know my community deserves organizations like Rebuilding Together to serve our neighbors in need.

In 2001 Rebuilding Together Fox Valley launched. Since then, we have been able to help thousands of neighbors in our community, in large part thanks to local businesses that provide funding and volunteers. Neighbors helping neighbors is the driving force behind our work. The volunteers that serve with us are doing it because they love and care about their community.

The impact we’ve made on our community is truly transformational, but there is still so much to be done. We have worked in Fox Valley for 20 years now and will continue to work for years to come. We hope to take part in lowering the number of fall related deaths and injuries in our state, and we hope to help neighbors remain safe at home.
