Rebuilding Together Silicon Valley believes that everyone deserves to live in a safe and healthy home.

Since 1991, Rebuilding Together Silicon Valley has transformed homes and lives by repairing and rebuilding homes and community facilities for low-income homeowners, particularly the elderly, the disabled and families with children. Each year, more than 1,300 volunteers gather to complete both critical repairs and accessibility modifications, enabling residents to live in warmth, safety and independence. All work is provided at no cost to the owner, with materials provided through donations and funds from area businesses, organizations, and private individuals. The impact extends beyond the individuals served to our community through revitalizing and stabilizing vulnerable neighborhoods. Since inception, over 31,000 local volunteers have renovated over 2,600 homes and facilities in the community.
