Our Mission

Repairing homes, revitalizing communities, rebuilding lives.

Our Vision

Safe homes and communities for everyone.

 

Rebuilding TogetherĀ® Boston (RTB) is the Boston affiliate of Rebuilding Together, a national organization that renovates houses of people unable to pay for essential home repairs and much-needed updates. Non-profit organizations that own their own facilities are also eligible for RTB's assistance. There is no cost to the recipients.

RTB organizes and collaborates with skilled workers, tradespeople, volunteers, and other community members to meet the pressing needs of our communities through:

  • preserving affordable housing

  • stabilizing neighborhoods

  • providing safety, security and independence to our clients

  • reducing the risk of homelessness

RTB recipients own their home or facility, but they can not afford to pay for critical repairs due to many factors beyond their control. These include rising property taxes; fixed incomes that have not keep pace with the cost of living; and loss of income or financial hardship resulting from medical emergencies or advancing age.

Since our founding in 1991, RTB has completed over 400 renovation projects (often top to bottom major repairs for an estimated total value of over $7 million). We rely on financial support from individual contributors, foundations, and corporations to carry out RTB's mission.
