Welcome to Rebuilding Together in Southern California
Help our 2014 ASICS LA Marathon team raise money to support Rebuilding Together in Southern California. Our runners are training hard and will be ready for the 26.2 mile challenge on March 9, 2014. The only thing remaining is for you to help by donating to sponsor one of our runners!
Rebuilding Together is the nation's largest volunteer home repair organization in the country. Across Southern California, Rebuilding Together volunteers are dramatically changing neighborhoods and lives by helping deserving homeowners live independently in comfort and safety. Rebuilding Together provides home repair and modification services to low-income homeowner-residents from Ventura County to San Diego and from Greater Los Angeles to the San Bernardino Mountain communities.
Southern California has over a million households with persons 65 years of age or older. Falls are a major source of injury and hospitalization for seniors. Approximately 78 percent of all falls occur in or around the home, and for seniors, falls are the number one cause of injury-related death. Home safety repairs and minor modifications can prevent many falls, but elderly homeowners often cannot afford fixing the deteriorating and unsafe conditions in their homes.
Rebuilding Together is dedicated to addressing those conditions through home repairs and modifications performed by community volunteers, corporations, civic and faith groups and many more. Rebuilding Together affiliates in Southern California are improving the safety, health, and quality of life for low-income, elderly and disabled homeowners across our region. Since 1991, RT groups have organized over 37,500 volunteers to repair more than 2100 homes of low-income families, all at no cost to the resident homeowners.
We have a long list of requests for help from homeowners in communities across Southern California, such as: Maria in Riverside asking for plumbing leak repairs; James in Pomona asking for repair of holes in floor of his mobile home; Rachel (81) in Garden Grove needing window repairs and safe stairs to her mobile home; Catherine (83) in Santa Ana asking for plumbing repaired so she has hot water to her kitchen; Doris in Rowland Heights asking for a wheelchair ramp and many more. Donations of any amount help us to serve more of the needs of these deserving homeowners.
