Rebuilding Together North Suburban Chicago volunteers will participate in a nationwide effort to improve the lives of homeowners in need in 12 different local communities on National Rebuilding Together Day, April 30.

Rebuilding Together North Suburban Chicago joins more than 200 Rebuilding Together affiliates nationwide, bringing together thousands of community volunteers to provide free home repairs and modifications for low-income Americans with a focus on the elderly, the disabled, military veterans and families in need. 

By rehabilitating and improving homes at no cost to homeowners, the volunteers make it possible for recipients to remain in safe and healthy homes, keep their independence and preserve their home equity.

Rebuilding Together North Suburban Chicago expects to work on an additional 20 projects in other communities on other days, for a total of 50 projects this year.

Home improvements are performed largely by volunteers who offer their time and skills. Military veterans in several Chicago suburbs will also benefit from extensive home rehabilitation thanks to local donors, Rebuilding Together volunteers and grants from the Sears “Heroes at Homes” program.
