About

Handy with tools? Looking to give back to your community?

Join Rebuilding Together Long Island’s all-year-round home repair program for a wonderful opportunity to help low income seniors, veterans, disabled, and families with children. Help us provide a safe, healthy, warm and accessible home at no cost to qualified homeowners. The high cost of living in Nassau and Suffolk leaves little room for home maintenance and repairs. Many of our clients survive on limited fixed incomes and fear they will lose their independence and be forced to leave their homes. Some of our disabled clients are prisoners in their own homes because they cannot afford a wheelchair ramp that would provide access in and out of the home and to critical health care needs. Our volunteers work diligently to alleviate those problems. You can help with weatherization, spackling and installing sheetrock, minor plumbing and electrical work, painting and installing wheelchair ramps. It is difficult to keep up with the high demand for help and we urgently need your help!
