Rebuilding Together Celebrates Home: National Rebuilding Month 2012 (Watch the new Community Starts at Home video!)

Rebuilding Together believes in a safe and healthy home for every person. Rebuilding Together provides critical repairs to an existing home, addressing both structural issues and those that affect the health of the homeowners. National Rebuilding Day is a cornerstone of Rebuilding Together's mission and brings national attention to the need for healthy and affordable housing, contributing to the sustainability of our neighborhoods. Peoples' most basic and critical needs are addressed on this national day of service.
