Join the Safe at Home Team!
Retired volunteers help provide minor home repairs weekly to low-income seniors and homeowners with disabilities here in our communities.

Rebuilding Together East Bay-North (RTEBN) provides free critical home repairs for seniors, veterans, and people with disabilities.

We are actively seeking volunteers with trade skills or handyman experience. A few examples of skills include carpentry, plumbing, electrical, and roofing experience to help with some of the repairs that we do in the homes of our clients.

Because of COVID-19, our National Rebuilding Day for April has been postponed to a later date, but we do have prep work to be done. We are focusing on exterior work only.

For the workdays, you would be working with other volunteers to do work including installing hand rails, grab bars, repairing gates and fences, installing exterior doors, electrical repairs, plumbing repairs, tile work, flooring, lock installations, and more

If you are RRP-Certified to do Lead Paint work, you are especially needed!

Please contact our office by phone or email, and sign up for a project!
