Rebuilding Together Aurora began in 1993. The goal was to become an affiliate of the national Rebuilding Together organization. Rebuilding Together Aurora is officially recognized by the Internal Revenue Service as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
What We Do
Once a year, on the last Saturday in April, skilled and unskilled volunteers alike join together in a unique one-day “blitz” event to repair homes in the Aurora community. Since 1993, the year of our first Rebuilding Day, the Aurora affiliate of the national organization Rebuilding Together rehabilitates and revitalizes the houses of Aurora's low-income population, particularly the elderly, disabled, and families with children.
Our Sponsors, members of Churches, Civic organizations and local Businesses, are given the opportunity to match the skill level of their volunteers with the work identified in a particular home. All volunteers, be they experienced trade professionals or someone just willing to help, work side-by-side doing the home improvement work, such as painting, plumbing, carpentry, electrical repairs, drywall repairs, weather-stripping, caulking, basement clean-up, replacement of locks and doors, installing handicapped ramps and yard work, most of which is well within the ability of a "handy" man or woman working with a few other willing volunteers .
