Our mission is :
We improve the homes and lives of low income, elderly and/or disabled homeowners in El Paso, so extending the opportunity to live a decent and independent life in their own home.
We do this free of charge with the help of volunteers and support from the community.
In 2015 Rebuilding Together worked on 53 projects. One of them was a Veterans Community Center, while all other one were homes. We touched the lives of some 400 low income citizens, of which 92 in their homes.
We made repairs of roofs, walls, floors, bathrooms, gas lines, etc.
In 2015 we involved volunteers in the painting and yard cleaning of 40 homes. Volunteers came from UTEP, Fort Bliss, Church groups, Banks, Companies. These days are dull of team building, camaraderie, fun, but above all a restoring of the pride of homeowners. WE hear statements like : “People stop at the home and admire what the volunteers have done”, “I can invite my children and family again in my home”, ….
We bring the volunteers out there during Event Days. We can count on some 1000 volunteers, which are supporting Rebuilding Together on Event Days like :
- Project Move in February
- National Rebuild day in April
- Make a Difference day of Fort Bliss in October
- Veterans Day in November
