Rebuilding Together Metro Denver


Rebuilding Together Metro Denver unites volunteers to repair and rehabilitate the homes of low-income elderly and people with disabilities in the Denver metropolitan area. Rebuilding Together provides assistance to people who own their own home but who, because of physical limitations or income, are not able to cover the costs of home repairs. Volunteers come from all walks of life, including civic organizations, small businesses, corporations, churches and other nonprofit organizations. In 2006, more than 267,000 people volunteered in 850 cities across the nation. Over 8,900 homes and nonprofit facilities were repaired at a value of $98 million.

 

Rebuilding Days

Twice a year, in April and October, teams of volunteers perform free home repairs and modifications for low-income seniors and people living with disabilities that repair and revitalize their homes, making them warm, safe and dry.

Emergency Home Repairs

Launched in June, 2007, the Emergency Home Repair Program is meeting urgent needs in situations that would present an immediate danger to the residents of the home or that would leave a person without heat, water, or electricity. Homeowners must be over age 65 to qualify for emergency services.

If you have any questions about the program or need assistance in completing the application, please call (720) 524-0840. All applicants will be notified within 4-6 weeks if their home has been selected for an evaluation.
