I have a sound roof over my head, but many in our community are not as fortunate. Some of our neighbors do not have a safe place to call home during these difficult times. As millions of people have lost income, they will have to ask themselves if they really have enough funds to fix the water heater that went out or if they can patch their leaking roof after they put food on the table and buy needed medicine.
For our older neighbors, having a safe home will reduce hospital visits and delay having to move into assisted living. For children, it means they can focus on learning. For their parents, it means they can focus on finding a new job and not worry about losing their home.
As a nonprofit organization, Rebuilding Together solves many of those problems at no cost to the recipients. We provide critical home repairs so our most vulnerable neighbors have a safe place to call home. I am grateful we are able to serve our community.
