The work of RTB's staff, sponsors and volunteers preserves home ownership and prevents homelessness for many at-risk homeowners and stabilizes neighborhoods by improving the facilities of community centers and other non-profit institutions. Currently, RTB receives no funding from any government agency. All donations come from private sources: individuals, corporations, foundations, associations, and organizations interested in helping to build a better community.
We also rely on donations of skilled labor, goods and services from individuals and corporations. These donations have a great impact on the amount of assistance that RTB can provide. Donated goods and services generate four dollars of additional value for every dollar we spend on repair/renovation work.
