Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
Since 1986, Rebuilding Together Alexandria's vision for Alexandria is a vibrant community where people of all income groups and cultures live in safe and healthy homes. We are working towards this goal by: Repairing and rehabilitating homes free of cost for those in need, including the elderly, persons with disabilities, military veterans, and families with children. Revitalizing communities by improving common spaces and schools serving low-income neighborhoods. Creating affordable housing in the City
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, 700+ volunteers worked on 40 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 30 years, Rebuilding Together Alexandria 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.
