HARTFORD, CT April 27, 2024 – Rebuilding Together, the leading national nonprofit organization with a vision to ensure safe homes and communities for everyone, will host its annual National Rebuilding Month this April. Rebuilding Together affiliates nationwide work year-round to provide essential home repairs for neighbors in need.  


In our community of Hartford, Rebuilding Together Hartford (RTH) will host volunteers to repair 14 homes in Blue Hills on National Rebuilding Day, held on April 27, 2024.


"RTH is a unique organization with the ability to keep residents in their home and assist with the creation of generational wealth here in Hartford” said Janice Castle, Board President of Rebuilding Together Hartford. 

Throughout April, Rebuilding Together affiliates and volunteers will work with veterans, older adults, families and disaster survivors by providing them with a variety of essential, health and safety home repairs, including flooring repairs and replacement, weatherization repairs, roof and handrail replacements, accessibility modifications, painting, landscaping and other major home rehabilitations. The repairs are provided free of charge to neighbors in need, who are often faced with diminishing resources and must choose food and medicine over critical home repairs.   

“Many of the neighbors in our communities are living in unsafe and unhealthy homes, unable to afford the essential home repairs they desperately need,” said Maureen Carlson, Interim CEO & Chief Strategy Officer of Rebuilding Together. “This April, thousands of Rebuilding Together volunteers will come together in service for their neighbors as a part of our annual month-long call to service, National Rebuilding Month.”


National Rebuilding Month will culminate on National Rebuilding Day, Saturday, April 27, and will engage volunteers to complete repairs on homes, nonprofit facilities and community spaces to bring immediate, transformational change to neighborhoods across America on the same day.  


National Rebuilding Month originated in 1973 in Midland, Texas with volunteers helping neighbors rebuild their homes. The group founded Rebuilding Together, at the time called “Christmas in April,” and gathered around a month of service each year in April. The mission then grew beyond the idea of providing service one month per year to bringing volunteers together to provide neighbors in need with critical repairs year-round. Today, Rebuilding Together has grown into a premier nonprofit community revitalization organization.
