Rebuilding Together Sacramento (RTS) understands the connection between a "home" and health and safety. RTS understands the connection between the conditions of a home and neighborhood and the residents' ability to thrive. We improve the living conditions of those who are low-income, elderly, disabled, or families with children. We improve the health, safety, and efficiency of deteriorating homes and neighborhoods and help older adults and people with disabilities live independently at home.

RTS started as "Christmas in April" in 1991 when a group of community volunteers repaired the home of an elderly homeowner. The affiliate joined a national network that now has 140 affiliates across the country. In 2001, the name was changed to Rebuilding Together Sacramento to reflect a year-round approach to home repairs and modifications. Since 1991, over 7,000 homes have been improved in Sacramento providing over $17 million in home and neighborhood improvements.

The solutions RTS brings to the table are increasingly more relevant. The number of older adults whose home is not equipped for aging in place is growing at an unprecedented rate. Childhood asthma is at an all-time high, often due to issues in the home. The majority of homes owned by low-income homeowners are inefficient and generate high utility bills. Neighborhoods and public facilities are deteriorating.  Those issues are addressed through three major programs:

  1.  The Safe at Home program provides safety aids to improve independence and decrease falls. 
  2. The Rebuild Events result in extensive repairs that improve the health and safety of many homes in a neighborhood. 
  3. The Critical Repair Program repairs or replaces single items such as roofs and HVAC systems in specific communities. 

RTS is an extremely cost-effective charity so your donation will make a huge impact.
