A safe and healthy home for every person.
To bring volunteers and communities together to improve the
homes and lives of low-income homeowners.
In 1973, a small group of neighbors and friends picked up hammers and paint
brushes in Midland, Texas. They had seen houses in their community fall
into disrepair and chose to dedicate one day to the elderly, disabled and
low-income homeowners who needed a hand. Their compassion inspired
others, and the movement grew.
Today, Rebuilding Together is a national organization committed to
year-round aid. With over 200,000 volunteers annually, we're able to
revitalize over 10,000 houses and public spaces to impact nearly
850,000 individuals. Since our founding in 1988, we've added $1.3
billion of market value back into the communities we serve and,
more importantly, priceless value to the
homeowners' lives we change.
Seeing a need in our region, Rebuilding Together — St. Louis
joined the effort in March of 1992. Our first Rebuilding Day
renovated five houses with the help of 105 volunteers. Since then,
we've assisted 2,800 homeowners, completed 52 community
projects and 489 Rebuilding Together Express restorations in
over 50 neighborhoods across the St. Louis region.
