Become a Volunteer

Rebuilding Together is really about hard-working, compassionate people helping other people.

At Rebuilding Together Hudson Valley, our volunteers are the backbone of our organization. Together, we accomplish more than home repairs; we preserve affordable homeownership, reduce substandard housing in the community, and improve not just the homes themselves, but the families and surrounding neighborhood as well. When you volunteer, you make a lasting impression on both the people you serve and the people you serve with.

Depending on your interest and skill level, we will place you in a position where you can be most effective – whether you are a professional tradesperson, computer programmer, photographer, graphic designer, or professional organizer, your time and talents are welcomed at RTHV!

The majority of Rebuilding Together Hudson Valley core Rebuilding Day activity is focused in April, during National Rebuilding Month, and on a particular Saturday in October. We also occasionally will take on projects throughout the year. Who volunteers for Rebuild Days?

Home Inspection Volunteer: Inspectors will ultimately determine the “warm, safe, and dry” issues and mobility problems related to houses that are under consideration for rebuilding and repair. Inspectors should have knowledge of home construction and renovation, the ability to estimate materials needed with approximate costs and the ability to estimate appropriate volunteers required, by skills and numbers. Volunteer commitment for home inspection will occur in the months prior to our Rebuild Days and do not require licensed home inspectors.

Skilled Tradesperson Volunteer: You are the heart of our work. We have requests every day for repairs, small and large. If you have handyman skills or are a skilled tradesperson, please contact us to be matched with a project for a homeowner in need.

Leadership Volunteer: Our project days would not run as smoothly without the dedication of our day-of leaders. House Captains and Volunteer Coordinators help to enlist volunteers for the project, task volunteers with specific jobs and lead the project to completion.

General Project Volunteer: Are you interested in volunteering on a project, but unsure if you have the right skills? Don’t worry, everyone can contribute to our mission! We sometimes have opportunities for general volunteers to roll up their sleeves and lend a hand with our Community Strong program. Sign up for our newsletter to be aware of upcoming opportunities!


In addition to our home and not-for-profit repair projects, Rebuilding Together Hudson Valley has multiple fundraising events that help support our mission. Volunteers are necessary to make these events successful!

Event/Fundraising Committee Volunteer: Volunteers on the Events/Fundraising Committee will help plan and implement fundraising events. Our two fundraisers, the Annual Golf Tournament and a Fall event, are lots of fun and are the direct result of great work by volunteers, staff, and board members. Activities will consist of soliciting sponsorships and auction items, as well as helping to promote and sell tickets to the event. We welcome additional individuals to join our Fund Development Committee to help make our annual events an even bigger success! Please contact us to get started today.

Board of Directors: If you think your experience and expertise can help advance Rebuilding Together Hudson Valley's social impact or you are looking for a rewarding community service experience, consider serving on the board of RTHV. If you are interested in this opportunity, please contact the RTHV Board President via
