Serving Dodge and Cuming Counties in Nebraska.

Helping to create safe homes and communities for everyone!

Hammers, Nails & Cocktails

 We’ve changed the name from “Jeans, Jewels & Jazz” to Hammers, Nails & Cocktails, but this is still our annual gathering to celebrate the accomplishments of the past year and help raise funds for the continued good work of Rebuilding Together.  The event this year will be held on Thursday, September 13 from 6:30 - 9:30 p.m. at the Fremont Opera House.   Enjoy heavy hors d'oeuvres and cocktails while listening to the musical stylings of talented area band, “Ro Hempel”!  

Though the evening is all about having fun, the need is certainly serious – raising funds to preserve affordable, safe and healthy homes and revitalize neighborhoods - by providing home repairs at no cost for local homeowners in need.  Increasing costs of living and decreasing social service budgets often leave our most vulnerable neighbors without the most basic of necessities: a warm, safe and dry home. 


Would you consider joining us for a night of friends, food, and fun in an effort to raise money for this necessary cause. There are many purchase options below, or feel free to contact us for more information.

Who Do We Help

At Rebuilding Together, we work hard every day to keep our most vulnerable citizens safe and healthy in their homes. Our clients must both own and reside in the home for which they are seeking assistance, and must commit to remain in their home. All clients must meet our income guidelines and provide the appropriate documentation. Currently we serve resident homeowners in Dodge and Cuming Counties in Nebraska.

Safe and Healthy Housing

Safe and healthy housing protects vulnerable individuals and families from harmful exposures to a variety of health and safety hazards. It makes important contributions to health by reducing exposure to allergens, chemicals, molds, and moisture.  Safe housing helps to prevent falls, fires, and other home accidents. Safe and healthy housing promotes a sense of security and control and has many economic benefits to neighborhoods and communities.  

Modular Ramp Program

Our accessibility ramp program allows our clients to enter and exit their homes safely. Ramps improve mental and physical health by providing a sense of independence, the ability to get outside and enjoy the fresh air, and the opportunity to visit friends and neighbors. Ramps are also a great way to promote volunteerism and a sense of community pride as volunteers help their neighbors lead a more independent and enjoyable life. Rebuilding Together installs and maintains the ramp at the homes of qualified individuals and then removes the ramp when no longer needed for use at another home.

Critical Home Repairs

Critical home repairs may include: 

  * Roof replacement or repair.

  * Replacement of weak or unsafe floors and porches. 

  * Bathroom and kitchen repairs that enhance safety and      accessibility. 

  * Critical plumbing and electrical repairs.

  * A host of other situations that may result in unsafe or unhealthy      living conditions. 

Critical home repairs are assessed by utilizing a 25-point health and safety checklist developed in partnership between Rebuilding Together and the National Center for Safe and Healthy Housing and focuses on 8 key factors shown below.

How You Can Help

At Rebuilding Together, Platte Valley East, we provide repairs and modifications to the homes of our area's most vulnerable low-income homeowners.  The work begins with a house, but ends with giving our neighbors in need a hand-up towards hope for a happier, safer, and healthier future.  Will you consider helping us accomplish this goal? We cannot exist without the help of generous donors like you. There are also many volunteer opportunities available. Find out more my clicking here.
