Neighbors helping neighbors, like the barn-raising of old, is the American spirit in action. Rebuilding Together is the leading national volunteer organization that in partnership with communities was born of that spirit as people came together to help their low-income neighbors repair their homes.
In 2004, Sebastopol established its own affiliate, Rebuilding Together Sebastopol, to work in this community and build our own neighborhood spirit from within.
The Rebuilding Together mission is to preserve and revitalize houses and communities within the Sebastopol area, assuring that low-income homeowners—from the elderly and disabled to families with children—live in warmth, safety and independence. Individual families are referred to us through neighborhood associations, churches, community organizations, service groups, and by self-referral.
Many of our neighbors have worked all their lives and have been physically and financially able to maintain their homes in good condition. Now due to illness, the loss of a spouse, aging, and/or economic hardships, they are unable do repair work themselves and their homes become unsafe or deteriorate.
Rebuilding Together assists with these necessary repairs that often include roofing, plumbing, electrical work, home modifications, and other improvements. Our goal is to provide a warm, safe, and dry environment for low-income homeowners and enable continued independence.
The next work day will be April 28, 2018.
All repairs are free for qualified homeowners. Learn about requirements, the selection process and download an application.
