Rebuilding Together is a United Way agency which provides assistance for people who own their home but physical limitations or income has made maintenance virtually impossible. Typically these individuals have a disability and/or elderly.
Many people in the community cannot provide themselves with even the basics that others take for granted. Typical home improvements include replacing floors and carpeting, improving plumbing and heating, replacing unsafe electrical wiring and kitchen appliances, installing handicap accessible devices and ramps, painting (exterior and interior), plaster repairs, replacing or repairing drafty windows and doors, and installing smoke and CO2 detectors.
