What A Year: A Reflection and Celebration of Rebuilding Together

As we approach the end of 2023, I find myself reflecting on the incredible journey we've undertaken together. This year has been nothing short of transformative for Rebuilding Together and I'm bursting with pride as I share some of our remarkable accomplishments.

Our commitment to reaching even more communities is evident in the continued growth of our services, specifically in rural communities. We believe everyone should have a safe and comfortable home and it's inspiring to witness the positive impact our affiliates are making in these often-overlooked regions. As we continue to broaden our reach in the new year, our impact will be amplified.

The expansion of our organization is a testament to the growing need for our services. Many of our affiliates have embraced our community revitalization partnership approach into their work, creating lasting impacts in the neighborhoods they serve. This collaborative spirit is at the heart of our mission.

A game-changing moment for Rebuilding Together came with an extraordinary $9 million gift from philanthropist MacKenzie Scott. This generous donation empowers us to do even more, reaching further and deeper into communities to provide critical home repairs and revitalize neighborhoods.

As we embark on the holiday season, I extend my warmest wishes to you and your loved ones. May the coming year be filled with continued growth, impact and positive change.
