Rebuilding Together Seattle

RTS provides donated repair services for homeowners in need so they can continue to live independently in warmth and safety.

How Do We Do It?All work is done by volunteers at no cost to the homeowner. Corporations, individuals and other groups sponsor or donate funds or materials to cover project and operational costs.

Members of RTS and YPS are highly motivated, engrained in the community, love to give back, and yet still have way too much fun.

Through this blog, you can find information regarding general RTS business, Young Professionals Society events and news, as well as Youth Board events and news.
