About

As Minnesota's population continues to age, there has been an extensive focus by the state's 2030 plan to keep people in their homes as long as possible to ensure better quality of life and a decreased cost to institutions. The needs of aging homeowners changes and can at times be quite expensive.

Rebuilding Together Twin Cities exists to bring homeowners in need and volunteers together to help strengthen communities and keep people in their homes. By participating in our Safe at Home program, you can help prevent future accidents and falls in homes. Volunteers are dispatched in groups of 2 - 3 people with full training and assistance from Rebuilding Together Staff; most volunteer sites last no longer than 2 hours.

Volunteers can be expected to install grab bars, railings, and other minor safety items in a senior citizen's home to their custom needs. Prior knowledge of basic power tools is a plus, but not required. We will provide all training and guidance.

Come learn new skills, meet some new members in your community, and make a difference.
