We’ve been lucky. Throughout the pandemic, we’ve depended on you to help us secure the resources needed to make critical, life-changing repairs for our most vulnerable neighbors in need. Time and time again, you’ve shown us that our community is strong, caring, and committed to the health and safety of all our neighbors. The same was true at Paint The Town, our annual fundraiser that was held in person for the first time in 4 years!

In the past, we invited you to join us at the Rebuilding Together Silicon Valley warehouse. Guests were able to experience firsthand the place where our life-changing repairs are launched. In 2023, we showcased our mission in a different way by welcoming RTSV supporters, friends, and family to the Gonzales/ Peralta Adobe – Fallon House Historic Site’s gardens, a venue that demonstrated the importance of our mission and the impact of the work we complete. The historic site shows that when our community comes together to preserve our neighborhoods, we protect and foster our city’s vibrant culture, rich history, and can sustain valuable assets for future generations.

Upon deeper reflection, the historic site also represents the existing structural issues RTSV plans to address going forward surrounding home preservation and the historical inequities of the accumulation of generational wealth. When the Gonzales/ Peralta Adobe – Fallon House Historic Site was originally built, home preservation was a luxury that only the upper economic classes had access to. At RTSV, we believe everyone deserves to live in a safe and healthy home and that access to a safe place to call home, including home preservation, should be equitable.

Our inspiring program wasted no time explaining the life-changing work we’ve been able to accomplish together over the past year. We analyzed the impact we collectively create with a perspective from our neighbors next door whom we serve and a brief message of thanks from our Executive Director, Deanne Everton. Between the delicious food and drink, photo booth, live DJ’s music, exciting raffle items, entertaining lawn games, popular wine pull, and heartwarming fund a need, we were most excited to see your smiles and catch up with you in person!

Old and new friends came together to support our life-changing work that our most vulnerable neighbors depend on to stay safe in their homes. The energy that filled the evening was nothing short of electric and inspiring. We couldn’t have had such a successful return to Paint The Town without you.
