Community Spotlight: Rebuilding Together Silicon Valley

Large group of enthusiastic Rebuilding Together volunteers with tools on a construction site.

Who They Are & What They Do

Rebuilding Together provides extensive home rehabilitation and modification services to home owners in need in many areas throughout Santa Clara County. Home Modifications aim to improve accessibility and independence (grab bars, wheelchair ramps, etc.) or assistance with critical repairs, such as water heaters, furnaces, and roof leaks. Nonprofit organizations may also be eligible for facility repairs. More information...
