Life Changing Experience for Everyone
Several years ago our President Tony Martinez, came upon a house where a blind couple was raising 10 children. There was water in the walls and the house was infested. With $10,000 in donations from Nations Bank and $20,000 from the community, he and the rest of the Rebuilding Together(then Christmas in April) team was able to gut the house, fix the roof, and make it safe and livable again. Rebuilding lives. It's what we do.
Rebuilding Together is taking on a new form, where instead of working one day on one house and we might not be back in that neighborhood for a decade, now we will commit to a neighborhood and stay there for three years. By doing this we can build relationships with our neighbors. When we then bring together skilled tradespeople, generous donors, and amazing volunteers we can do so much more than just repair homes. We can truly revitalize communities, and rebuild lives.
In 2018-2021 our projects will be in Bakersfield.
