The mission of Rebuilding Together: http://www.rebuildingtogether.org is to preserve and revitalize houses and communities, assuring that low-income homeowners, from the elderly and disabled to families with children, live in warmth, safety, and independence. In partnership with communities, their goal is to make a sustainable impact.
The impact is made through providing necessary repairs free of charge to existing homeowners. These necessary repairs often include home modifications, roofing, plumbing, and electrical repairs and/or improvements.
They have a special project called Serving Those Who Serve. The mission of this particular project is to help wounded Iraq vets.
Serving Those Who Serve is a special-needs home modification service that will be reserved exclusively for veterans who served in Operation Iraqi Freedom or Enduring Freedom, and now have loss of sight, loss of hearing, loss of mobility, or traumatic brain injury. It will not only make their homes safer, but will improve the quality of life for these brave men and women and their families by providing independence and mobility.
This service is being made entirely at no cost and will be accomplished by community and military volunteers and skilled trades.
If you know of a wounded veteran who might need their help they have an application to apply for assistance. If you’d like to help them in their mission of modifying homes to meet the needs of wounded veterans they also have a page with information on how to volunteer.
