During the month of April, nearly 40,000 volunteers are expected to complete over 1,600 Rebuilding Together projects across the country.
In our community, Rebuilding Together Howard County will host over 1,000 volunteers to repair 28 houses, 2 non-profit facilities, and Ellicott City flood victim’s homes on Saturday, April 29, 2017.
“The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development has indicated at least 30 million homes have one or more health hazards present,” said Caroline Blakely, President and CEO of Rebuilding Together. “National Rebuilding Month is an opportunity to educate communities on the close relationship of health and housing, to highlight the critical need for our home repair services and to call individuals to action until we ensure every person has a safe and healthy home.”
National Rebuilding Month will culminate on National Rebuilding Day, Saturday, April 29, 2017, and will engage volunteers in a concerted effort to complete repairs on homes and non-profits facilities to bring immediate, transformational change to communities across America on the same day.
We invite you to join us on this exciting day!
