Mission: Repairing homes, revitalizing communities, rebuilding lives.

Since 1991, Rebuilding Together Silicon Valley has transformed homes and lives by repairing and rebuilding homes and community facilities for low-income homeowners, particularly seniors, people with disabilities, and families with children. Each year, more than 2000 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 37,000 local volunteers have renovated over 4,000 homes and facilities in the community.
