About Rebuilding Together / Christmas in April - rebuildingtogether.org
Rebuilding Together is the nation’s leading nonprofit working to preserve affordable home ownership and revitalize communities. Its network of more than 200 affiliates across the country provides free rehabilitation and critical repairs to the homes of low-income Americans. Loudoun County Christmas in April is the local Rebuilding Together affiliate, and makes free home repairs for low-income homeowners, especially the elderly and disabled. Volunteer teams, like the ones with which I have been involved, rehabilitate homes for low-income, elderly disabled homeowners, and families with children, who would otherwise be unable to make them (for financial and/or physical reasons) to continue living independently in warmth and safety and to age in place. All the work is done by volunteers at no cost to the homeowner.
