The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
Together we transform the lives of low-income homeowners by improving the safety and health of their homes and revitalizing their communities.
At Rebuilding Together Pittsburgh, we believe everyone deserves to live in a safe and healthy home.
That is why we provide low-income homeowners with critical home repairs, accessibility modifications, and energy-efficient upgrades.
Rebuilding Together Pittsburgh and over 25,500 volunteers have completed nearly 2,300 rebuild projects in Allegheny County. As we rebuild homes for seniors, veterans, and persons with physical disabilities, our lasting impact helps to stabilize and revitalize our region's neighborhoods.
The majority of our work is completed in places we call our Comprehensive Impact Neighborhoods . Thousands of homeowners in these distressed neighborhoods lack the resources to maintain their homes. When a homeowner lacks the financial resources to maintain their home, unhealthy and dangerous situations increase. No one should have to call an unsafe place home.
