One day.
Countless lives changed.

Many of our neighbors worked hard to become homeowners and spent years lovingly caring for their houses. Age, illness or other uncontrollable causes have left them unable to keep up with the repairs that make a home safe and livable. In communities across the country, Rebuilding Day unites over 200,000 volunteers on one Saturday to repair homes and restore pride, dignity and independence.

Help us rebuild more than a home.

Here in St. Louis, Rebuilding Day has impacted over 50 communities across the city and county. Whether you are a skilled trades worker or have never picked up a paintbrush, you can make an impact. Mark your calendars and please join us on Saturday, April 30, 2016 to lend a hand to our neighbors.
