A home that is safe and healthy is at the core of a thriving family. However, housing continues to be one of Broward County community challenges. Rebuilding Together serves vulnerable and at-risk Broward County homeowners, including elderly, disabled adults and children, as well as veterans. Assistance is targeted at homeowners who have been unable to keep up with preventative maintenance due to their age, physical ability, and financial resources.
Consequently, their homes have fallen into interior and exterior disrepair. Rebuilding Together is often the last hope for a family struggling to keep up with expenses such as food, utilities, healthcare, medicine, insurance, and property taxes. These families lack resources for home maintenance, which becomes major health and safety hazards when ignored.
Rebuilding Togethers Building A Healthy Neighborhood Program focuses our efforts to restore and preserve safe and healthy homes within a specific low-income neighborhood of need. Focusing our efforts in one community, in a block-by-block manner, creates momentum for a neighborhood to be transformed over time.
Community revitalization is much more than beautification; it is a collective effort to identify and strengthen the assets already present in the area. The removal of slum and blight is just one component to building a Healthy Neighborhood. A community revitalization partnership is a coordinated approach between Rebuilding Together and residents, volunteers, municipalities, nonprofits, businesses, foundations, and other partner organizations to build and sustain a safe, healthy, and thriving community.
