Your Help Matters.
Rebuilding Together Dutchess County preserves homeownership for our neighbors in need, especially the elderly, disabled, and veterans by making essential repairs and modifications at no cost. But, none of that is possible without YOU. Volunteers are the backbone of Rebuilding Together and everybody on the worksite contributes greatly to the success of the workday. There is always plenty to do for all of our volunteers regardless of skill set. However, if a house needs plumbing, electrical work, a new roof or heating system, we rely on the generosity of very skilled volunteers.
We need your help with community events throughout the year. Volunteers can make a life-changing difference for someone who is unaware of our services. We are always looking for talented, enthusiastic people to help further the mission of RTDC.
Some Fun Reasons You Should Volunteer:
- Helping others.
- Making new friends.
- Building self-confidence.
- Gaining personal growth.
- Giving something back to the community.
- Sharing talents, abilities, and experiences.
- Learning new skills.
Anyone 16 years of age or older who has the desire to help. No special skills required - you will be teamed up with a skilled House Captain for your project. Skilled volunteers typically take leadership roles on our projects and are essential to our success.
Help make cost-free repairs to the homes of our low-income, elderly, and physically challenged neighbors.
Our largest projects occur on our Rebuilding Days on the last Saturday of April and fourth Saturday in October. These projects are designed to be a one-day commitment. Up to 20 projects may be scheduled on a single Rebuilding Day.
