Each year, on the last Saturday in April, our "Rebuilding Day Program" has 30-40 teams with over 1,000 volunteers performing repairs on homes in the older part of Omaha.
Our clients own their home and are on average over 70 years of age or permanently disabled at any age. Their home has fallen into disrepair and they don’t have the financial resources or the physical ability to do the work themselves.
Teams of volunteers do work like painting, cleaning, repairs to bathrooms, kitchens, porches and stairs. The average team size is 24 but we have teams of from 10-50 people. Teams usually do some prep work before the actual work day but on average spend 1 to 2 days doing all of the work. All materials and supplies are provided by Rebuilding Together Omaha Inc. or by donations from local retailers. Teams provide the tools, food, and most importantly the volenteers to get the work done.
Rebuilding Day is a great way to give something back to the community while helping a homeowner who would otherwise not get the help needed to allow them be independent by remaining in their home.
