Mission Statement

Since 1986, Rebuilding Together Alexandria (RTA) has partnered with volunteers and communities to provide free home repairs to low-income homeowners in the City of Alexandria. Our goal is to preserve existing homes and ensure that our neighbors in need, from the elderly and disabled to families with children, are able to remain in their own home safely, independently and comfortably.

Description

Rebuilding Together was created out of a fundamental belief that all people deserve to live independently in safe, warm and comfortable housing. This is best accomplished by preserving the existing homes of homeowners in order to ensure that they are not forced to choose between home repairs and food, heat or medicine. The priorities for our work include emergency repairs, safety modifications, and energy efficiency upgrades.

Hundreds of volunteers associated with local companies, places of worship and community organizations work on National Rebuilding Day, the last Saturday of April. Last April, 800 volunteers worked on 57 homes on this one day, while thousands of volunteers worked in over 200 communities across the country. It is the largest volunteer event in our community and provides a great team-building experience for our wonderful volunteer teams.

Throughout the past 25 years, RTA has played an integral part in keeping low-income homeowners in their own homes and non-profit organizations free of costly repair expenses in the City of Alexandria. On a larger scale, the work that we do on a year-round basis helps preserve home ownership and affordable housing in the City of Alexandria.
