Rebuilding Together Oakland County is a 501c3 nonprofit organization that works year-round to provide free home repairs and renovations to veterans, disabled individuals, senior citizens, and families with children in Oakland County who own their home, are up to date on their taxes, and have homeowners insurance.
These homeowners are no longer physically or financially able to pay for the repairs to their home. Thanks to the many volunteers who donate their time each year (1,000 during the 2014-2015 fiscal year) we are able to provide free repairs to drastically change these homeowners quality of life, increase energy efficiency and add market value to the community.
For every one dollar we receive, we provide over three dollars of service and goods to low-income homeowners and their families.
If you raise $100, Rebuilding Together can provide $300 worth of service and goods to a homeowner through a Minor Home Repair or Rebuild Day project. Examples of work completed through past Rebuild day projects, Minor Home Repair projects, and our Off-cycle projects include:
• Kitchen renovations for wheelchair bound individuals
• Roof tear-off and replacement
• Bathroom remodeling for handicapped accessibility
• Construction of wheelchair ramps
• Interior and exterior painting
• Window replacement
• Yard Clean up
• Energy efficiency improvements such as replacing door sweeps and sealing windows
• Installing grab bars
• Repairing toilets
Rebuilding Together Oakland County (RTOC) is an affiliate of the National organization. Nationally Rebuilding Together affiliates have repaired 150,000 homes nationwide. Since RTOC was founded in 1992, we have renovated 949 homes and non-profit facilities, with the help of 281,100 hours of time donated by volunteers. These efforts added an estimated $7.7 million in market value to the community.
