April Is National Rebuilding Month Image 1

April is National Rebuilding Month: Rebuilding Together affiliates across the country, including all of us at RTSV, host an annual month-long call to service during April, culminating with National Rebuilding Day on Saturday, April 27th. We put the focus on our clients and engage volunteers and partners with opportunities to serve the veterans, older adults, families with young children, and neighbors with disabilities who depend on our services to stay safe in their homes.

This year, National Rebuilding Day is on Saturday April 27th. We’re expecting to transform 22 homes at project sites located throughout Santa Clara County from Milpitas to Gilroy! Last year, we welcomed over 400 smiling volunteers who made a direct impact on the worsening Silicon Valley housing crisis. Will you be one of them this year? We’re counting on you to show up on National Rebuilding Day so that we can continue to provide life-changing repairs at zero-cost to neighbors in need, who are often faced with diminishing resources and must choose food and medicine over critical home repairs.

The Crew That Rebuilds Together

Each project site is unique with its own story and challenges. One of the most inspiring parts of Rebuilding Day is seeing the commitment of our volunteers as they navigate issues and celebrate their own accomplishments and the lives of the homeowners at their project sites.

Jessica is raising 2 generations of strong women at her home by having them help the volunteers on Rebuilding Day.

Lien is amazed at the transformation of her home on Rebuilding Day. RTSV replaced her front porch and stairs, removed dry rotted trim at the front of her home and installed new eaves, installed smoke and carbon monoxide detectors, and repaired an opening in the skirting around her home on one side.

Marlys stands in front of her home, relieved at the security she feels after a sliding door replacement, window repairs, and new functional locks to help her stay safe at home.

At Rebuilding Together – Silicon Valley, we believe that everyone deserves to live in a safe and healthy home, so we help provide critical home repairs to over 600 clients per year, including to those who are aging in place. We rely on generous donations—from supporters like you—to continue our essential work and the positive impact we have in these communities.
