About Rebuilding Together Silicon Valley (RTSV)

We believe that everyone deserves to live in a safe and healthy home. Rebuilding Together Silicon Valley brings volunteers and communities together to improve the homes and lives of low‐income homeowners in need. We also assist nonprofit organizations with facility maintenance and repairs so that they can dedicate their time and resources to helping our community. Our impact extends beyond the individuals served to revitalize and stabilize vulnerable neighborhoods in our community.
Our work preserves affordable housing by transforming homes and lives through critical repairs, and accessibility modifications, at no cost to the service recipient. The majority of the homeowners we serve are older adults and/or people with disabilities who are physically and financially unable to maintain safe and warm living conditions for themselves and their families. Our efforts are strengthened by partnerships and collaborations with government agencies, private businesses, skilled craftspeople, civic organizations, faith communities and community volunteers.
