About Us

The number of low-income homeowners in Springfield and the U.S. increases each year. Currently, 24 million how-income homeowners across the country struggle to choose between vital necessities, such as food or medicine, and home repairs.

Rebuilding Together works to ensure that as many families as possible do not have to make these difficult choices.

Unskilled volunteers join with skilled tradespeople, painting, cleaning, weatherizing, doing carpentry, electrical, and plumbing repairs, and building ramps and roofs. These repairs allow the many seniors we serve to "age in place" and remain in their homes.

Houses and Homeowners are selected with care.

Homeowners must be of low income and elderly, disabled, or families unable to do the work themselves.

Families are referred to us through neighborhood associations, churches, synagogues, community organizations and service groups, and by self-referral. (Click here to download a homeowner application.)

Homeowners participate in many ways.

Typically, labor and some supplies are donated. While homeowners do not pay for services, they are asked to welcome volunteers and work alongside them whenever possible.

Our year-round program engages thousands of sponsors and volunteers.

Throughout the year, we take on cleanup and repair projects at homes across the city's 17 neighborhoods. Each is sponsored by an organization, which deploys a group of volunteers.

Every year, on National Rebuilding Day in April, we hold a cluster rebuild project. Known as 'GreenNFit,' we partner with dozens of sponsors and contractors and a thousand volunteers to rebuild as many as 25 homes on a single street block on a single day. Click here to learn more.

Funding comes from you: generous individuals, corporations, labor organizations, foundations, civic and religious organizations.

Every dollar you give, and every hour you volunteer, is a wisely spent investment in building a better Springfield, Massachusetts.
