It is the cornerstone of the American Dream and a fundamental asset to the health and continued vibrancy and growth of communities across the country. No homeowner enters into their new home with the idea that they will have to forgo basic home maintenance. However, illness, aging, the rising cost of healthcare, prescriptions, food and fuel, the loss of a job or growing families can force good people to make difficult choices. Our vision is "Safe Homes and Communities for Everyone." At Rebuilding Together, we are helping to alleviate the need for our friends and neighbors to make these difficult choices.
Safe and Healthy Housing
Rebuilding Together, Platte Valley East, helps to restore safe and healthy conditions to neglected homes. We offer accessibility modifications for those who would like to remain in their homes as they age or after life-altering disabilities. The assistance that we offer with the help of our generous supporters and the work of our volunteers can bring hope and health to individuals, families, neighborhoods and communities. Home by home, block by block, the fabric of an entire community can be changed. We specialize in rebuilding physical homes, but our ultimate goal is to rebuild a sense of "home" for folks who simply need help in a difficult time.
We Can Help
Many people have worked hard all of their lives and have been able to make the needed repairs and modifications to their homes on their own. When circumstances make that impossible, we can help. Through our extensive network of volunteers and donors, we make repairs and modifications that improve the health, safety and independence of our families, friends and neighbors. We serve senior citizens, single parents, grandparents raising grandchildren, people with disabilities, families with children, veterans and children caring for elderly parents. Whatever your situation, we may be able to help.
