In 2010, 16% of American children lived in families with incomes below the poverty threshold. With more than 2.3 million grandparents raising their grandchildren, the heads of many of these households couldn't keep up with repairs either by themselves or by hiring professionals.

In 2002, Rebuilding Together's rehabilitation of homes and non-profit community centers and childcare facilities helped 52,970 children have a warm, dry, and secure place to grow up. Many homes with kids were among the 3,180 in which RT volunteers upgraded electrical wiring in 2002, eliminating fire hazards and the risk of electrical shock. More were among the 870 homes that were without heat until RT showed up, among the 3,480 that received plumbing repairs, and among the 500 in which new stoves replaced old non-functioning ones. Also in 2002, Rebuilding Together volunteers nationwide installed 6,080 smoke alarms--simple, lifesaving improvements--many in homes of families with young children.

A Testimony...
"Every day when I get up I have to make sure I'm not dreaming. It's amazing! I was raised in an orphanage and was taught to love one another and help each other. I hope next year I can volunteer and help make someone as happy as you have made my son and me." (Peninsula, CA homeowner)
