Home by Home, Block by Block, Rebuilding Together is rebuilding homes and communities nationwide. For almost 25 years, Rebuilding Together has provided extensive home rehabilitation and modification services to homeowners in-need. Our network of 187 affiliated non-profits brings together 100,000 volunteers and completes nearly 10,000 projects each year. For every $1 donated to Rebuilding Together, $4 of value is delivered to our projects. Collectively, that’s over $1.5 billion in market value reinvested to date into the communities we serve. With the help of everyday citizen volunteers, skilled tradespeople, the support of local business and major corporate partners, Rebuilding Together affiliates make life better for thousands of low-income homeowners every year. Our work positively impacts the condition of the surrounding community as well, through community center rehabilitation, playground builds, and partnerships with organizations focused on energy efficiency, sustainable community gardens, volunteer engagement, and education. Home by Home, Block by Block, entire communities are transformed.
In 1993 a group of civic minded citizens in Lansing decided to join a national movement to rehabilitate homes of their low income elderly and handicapped neighbors. That organization was then known as Christmas in April. Today, 500 plus homes later, we are known as Rebuilding Together, Tri-County, still thriving and now serving residents of the Greater Lansing Area, including Ingham, Eaton and Clinton Counties. Many of the homeowners we assist have worked hard all their lives to maintain their home. Now, due to aging, illness and limited income, they are unable to do the needed repairs to make their home safe, and in some cases livable.
Our Board of Directors is all volunteers and has the yearlong task of planning Rebuilding Day, the last Saturday in April, and raising the funds to complete home repairs. The group is non-partisan, non-sectarian, and non-profit. Each year more applications are received than our group can assist, so our job is never completed.
The key to our success has been people like you, fellow Greater Lansing residents that give your time, working hands, and financial support to make homes safe and warm. Foundations, local businesses, faith communities, service organizations, associations, clubs and individuals provide in-kind and monetary contributions for repairs.
Rebuilding Together, Tri-County is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, so all donations are fully tax deductible.
