This program provides help for low-income older adults and family homeowners who      require minor home modifications to enable them to continue residing in their homes. Rebuilding Together volunteers install ramps, handrails, toilet seat risers, shower chairs, special lighting, smoke detectors, removal of debris, and other safety improvements.

Rebuilding Together National Rebuilding Day

Every April, for one day, thousands of volunteers work to make home accessibility modifications possible for low-income families, older adults and individuals with disabilities.
