About Us

Rebuilding Together DC • Alexandria is an award-winning, mission-driven organization that creates healthy neighborhoods for residents in Washington, DC and Alexandria, Virginia by:

• Maintaining housing for low-income homeowners

• Providing critical home repairs that eliminate health and safety hazards

• Renovating schools, parks, and other common spaces in underserved neighborhoods

• Creating homeownership opportunities

In doing so, we:

• Help DC and Alexandria residents – including families with children, older adults, individuals with disabilities, and veterans – continue to live safely and independently in their homes.

• Address home repair and maintenance issues that potentially present an immediate safety or health risk to local homeowners – thereby preventing unnecessary illness, disease, and perhaps even death.

• Maintain vibrant communities where people of all income groups and cultures live in safe and healthy homes.

• Prevent local homeowners from being one home maintenance bill away from a missed mortgage payment or bankruptcy or homelessness.

History

Rebuilding Together DC • Alexandria was established in 1986, and during that time, we have: 

• Served households with average annual income of just $31,116. Nationally, there are 25.4 million low-income homeowners, 11.8 million of whom are elderly (Census 2012).

• Recruited more than 28,000 volunteers, who have worked on more than 2,200 projects.

• Leverage $8.8 million worth of in-kind value to the community. 

Though we provide repair services year round, many volunteer projects take place on National Rebuilding Day in April. Annually, 1,000+ volunteers donated $350,000+ in manual labor and materials to DC and Alexandria's homeowners in need.

If you know of a DC or Alexandria homeowner that can be served through our programs, please contact us at 703.836.1021.
