Rebuilding Together Boston (RTB) to Repair Homes and Community Center During National Rebuilding Month

Rebuilding Together Boston (RTB) will host more than 200 volunteers to repair nine (9) properties in Dorchester and Mattapan at no cost to the homeowners as part of Rebuilding Together’s National Rebuilding Month. Partnering with the Codman Square NDC, Red Cross and other agencies, RTB’s 2018 NRD recipients of critical repairs and updates include eight (8) homeowners in the Dorchester and Mattapan neighborhoods of Boston as well as a multi-service center in Mattapan.

Rebuilding Together, a leading national nonprofit organization with a mission to repair the homes of people in need and revitalize our communities, will host its annual National Rebuilding Month this April. Nearly 33,000 volunteers will serve in more than 1,350 affiliate-led rebuild projects throughout the country during National Rebuilding Month. Rebuilding Together Boston is the local affiliate of this national non-profit organization.

“Too many of our neighbors throughout the country suffer from the health and economic consequences of living in substandard housing and unsafe communities,” said Caroline Blakely, President and CEO of Rebuilding Together. ”National Rebuilding Month serves as a call to action to encourage everyone to support their neighbors, strengthen their community and ensure everyone is living in safe and healthy homes.”

National Rebuilding Month will culminate on National Rebuilding Day, Saturday April, 28. Rebuilding Together volunteers will work in a concerted effort to complete repairs on homes, nonprofit facilities and community spaces to bring immediate change to communities across the country.

Rebuilding Together Boston has been serving homeowners in Massachusetts since 1991. Celebrating 25 years and counting, RTB has completed repairs and renovations of nearly 400 homes and nonprofit facilities in and around Boston with the aggregate value of our work to date estimated at $7 million. We have worked with over 20,000 volunteers since our founding to make lasting change in the lives of Boston homeowners.
