|About||Rebuilding Together San Diego works together with the community to improve facilities, provide safe and healthy homes and revitalize communities.|
|Mission||Together we transform the lives of low-income homeowners by improving the safety and health of their homes and revitalizing their communities.|
With the support and involvement of businesses and individuals, Rebuilding Together San Diego sets in motion an endless cycle of renewal, community-building, and civic engagement. Since 1995, we have rehabilitated more than 400 homes and facilities which serve thousands of local residents. Hundreds of civic-minded companies, building tradesmen and community groups support our work with sponsorships, financial contributions, and in-kind donations of both resources and materials.
Our programs include:
-Annual Rebuilding Day: The flagship event every April provides FREE “mini-makeover” home repairs and renovations for low-income families, elderly, veteran and disabled homeowners. Non-profit community facilities are also renovated. Over 500 volunteers participate to paint, clean-up homes and yards, and perform plumbing, carpentry, and electrical repairs. Each project is “adopted’ by a corporate sponsor.
-Safe At Homes: This program addresses home repair and maintenance issues that represent safety risks or limit access to or within the home.
-Taking It To the Streets: This program’s goal is to encourage citizens to take responsibility for their neighborhoods and affect changes for themselves. RTSD has a warehouse full of tools and materials that we loan out for community and youth organizations who want to host community & street clean-ups, graffiti paint outs, or easement plantings that will improve their own neighborhoods.
