Transforming Homes and Lives Through Repairs and Renovation 

Apr 17, 2023 | Newsletter, Spring 2023

Rebuilding Together Silicon Valley (RTSV) is an independent affiliate of the national Rebuilding Together organization. RTSV is one of the only organizations in Santa Clara County that provides critical repairs at no cost to low-income homeowners and nonprofit facilities by leveraging volunteer labor. Since their establishment in 1991, Rebuilding Together Silicon Valley has renovated nearly 3,000 homes and community facilities.

RTSV serves homeowners who cannot afford to make repairs and/or modifications to their homes and whose independence and safety are jeopardized by the condition of their home. RTSV’s work preserves affordable housing by transforming homes and lives through critical repairs and accessibility modifications for low-income homeowners and community centers, at no cost to the service recipient. Majority of the low-income homeowners they serve are seniors and/or people with disabilities, who are physically and financially unable to maintain safe and warm living conditions for themselves and their families. RTSV’s impact extends beyond the individuals served to revitalize and stabilize vulnerable neighborhoods in our community.

RTSV is able to provide all services, at no cost to the recipient, by utilizing volunteer labor and donated and reduced cost supplies and materials. They could not provide life-changing repairs for their low-income neighbors without the generous support of their sponsors. Most of the work is also completed by community volunteers who generously donate their time and talents to help out.  Without donors, RTSV cannot fund their projects. Without volunteers, they cannot perform their work, and without clients, they cannot serve our community.
