That photo is from a sunny day in April, when volunteers from Rebuilding Together Seattle swarmed an Admiral District home to provide its owner with much-needed but unaffordable repairs. That’s what RTS does. And it’s putting out this call to see if anyone else in West Seattle could use their help:
Rebuilding Together Seattle, a nonprofit organization, is currently accepting applications from homeowners in need. Rebuilding Together Seattle (RTS) provides donated repair services for low-income homeowners, through the support of sponsors and community volunteers.
To qualify for the program, homeowners must be low-income and unable to complete the work independently. We assist those who are elderly, disabled, veterans, and/or families with children. RTS also assists non-profit or community organizations in need of facility repairs.
RTS is connecting with health facilities, government agencies, shelters, senior centers, and community centers to inform others about our program. RTS is need of community leaders to share the word about our program to those in need, with a goal to assist more clients each year.
RTS recently began a Veterans Program, in an effort to bring veteran community members together to help low-income veteran homeowners and their families. RTS also launched an Annual Repair Program that will focus on helping qualified homeowners with quick safety fixes around the house. These fixes include installing grab bars, handrails, skid strips, and updating to energy efficient light bulbs.
Interested parties can call our office to request an application, or view and print our application online at: www.rtseattle.org/forms.php. For more information, check out our blog at rebuildingtogetherseattle.blogspot.com!
