Our Story

 

Rebuilding Together Oakland | East Bay is an affiliate of Rebuilding Together, Inc., which was formerly known as Christmas in April. Rebuilding Together is the nation's leading nonprofit working to preserve affordable homeownership and revitalize communities, and is part of a network of more than 200 affiliates providing critical home repairs to low-income homeowners at no cost to them. 

 

Older, disabled and other vulnerable homeowners are often unable to perform or afford home maintenance. Deferred maintenance compromises the safety and soundness of the home. We also repair and renovate non-profit facilities serving low-income communities in the Oakland - Hayward corridor.

 

A typical Rebuilding Together Oakland | East Bay homeowner may be a:

  • Older adult
  • Person with a disability
  • Veteran
  • Adult child caring for ailing parents

 

The repairs are performed by thousands of dedicated volunteers funded by the generous sponsorship of local corporations, foundations, churches, synagogues, schools and civic organizations.
