Rebuilding Together Hartford celebrates 25thAnniversary by Rebuilding 25 Homes in Hartford’s Blue Hills Neighborhood

Rebuilding Together Hartford celebrated its 25th anniversary on April 27thby rebuilding homes in Hartford’s Blue Hills neighborhood. National Rebuilding Day was a huge success as nearly 500 skilled and unskilled volunteers, known as [Re]Builders came together to help low-income homeowners repair their homes. Volunteers rebuilt, repaired, and renovated 25 homes on Andover, Branford, Cornwall, Lyme, Palm, and Westminster Streets. Projects included electrical and siding repairs, insulation, plumbing, window replacements, grab bar installations, landscaping, masonry, basement cleaning and much more!

No matter what the level of expertise, every hand made a difference. The amount of gratitude and overwhelming joy on each homeowners’ face make it evident that this event makes a tremendous difference to each life that is touched. However, this could not be done without the help of many –  the more hands, the better. Let’s continue to lend helping hands to those in need!

National Rebuilding Day is a great opportunity for our community to come together and make a difference. Every year volunteers from corporate, nonprofit, and religious organizations as well as from The City of Hartford come together to help those in need improve their homes, their communities, and their lives.
