We can't do it without you!

 

Why is volunteering so important?


Home by home, block by block, Rebuilding Together is rebuilding homes and communities nationwide. For almost 27 years, Rebuilding Together has provided extensive home rehabilitation and modification services to homeowners in need. Our network of 142 affiliated nonprofits brings together 75,000 volunteers and completes nearly 10,000 projects each year. With the help of 3.4 million volunteers, Rebuilding Together has delivered over $1.3 billion in market value since its founding. Rebuilding Together continues its mission of seeking to provide a safe and healthy home for every person.

Who Volunteers?


Volunteers are the heart and soul of RTVOS. Our Individual and group volunteers, both skilled and unskilled, form the backbone that allows RTVOS to provide critical community services.

Skilled Trade Professional Volunteers are the glue that binds our rebuilding efforts, providing materials and technical know-how on everything from roofing to plumbing, assessment to planning. For a more detailed list of skilled volunteers needs, click here.

Service Volunteers step in when there are large projects that require comparatively little experience. Examples include cleaning, painting, landscaping, moving furniture and appliances, etc.

Support Volunteers provide everything from hospitality on project days to homeowner support to other professional support services like photography, IT services, legal and other additional outreach services.

 

WHY VOLUNTEER?

IT FEELS GOOD! We make it easy to volunteer as a group. We can accommodate volunteer groups of nearly any size - as few as 10 or as many as 1000 - and will manage the entire process from beginning to end. You help your neighbors and we help you do it. Register today!

  • One Day Commitment – Limited commitment is required for most volunteers

  • Hands On Experience – You can see the immediate, positive impact of your work

  • Making a Difference – You see the before and after of your contribution

  • Builds Camaraderie – Corporate groups interact in a different setting and interact with homeowners

 

Enhances Group Identity – “We did it!”

  • Exposure – Your team helps focus the community on neighbor helping neighbor

  • Community Pride and Revitalization – Your work renews pride in homeownership and encourages neighbors to improve their own homes

  • Understanding – Volunteers gain a better understanding of housing and human needs

 

Our large group volunteer activities are typically associated with a financial donation* and volunteers from the sponsoring organization. We tailor your project to meet your needs and those of the communities we serve. Ready to sign up? You can register now! 

For more information, please contact us to discuss your goals as a group and what you would like to accomplish in your community.  Some of our large group events include National Rebuilding Day, Make A Difference Day, Paint-it-Forward, and Project: Give Back.

*Financial requirements vary by group size and project.

Occasionally, we need unskilled volunteers to paint, etc. when sponsoring groups find they do not have enough people to work on their project. However, this is the exception rather than the rule. If you really want to work on a house, we urge you to put together your own sponsoring team.
