Rebuilding Together Dayton is the only organization in the Miami Valley dedicated to rehabbing owner-occupied homes for low-income homeowners at no cost. Through in-kind labor and donated materials, Rebuilding Together Dayton is able to expand every dollar raised into $4. On April 27, 2013, nearly 1,000 volunteers will work on 20 homes, two community centers and a church across the City of Dayton, providing $300,000 worth of improvements and modifications.
Rebuilding Together Dayton selects projects from nominations by neighborhood groups, churches, neighborhood development corporations, city housing inspectors, priority boards and individuals.
Applicants must own their own homes in the City of Dayton and have a combined household income of less than 80% of the area median income. Preference is given to homeowners who are elderly and/or disabled and have lived in their homes for a minimum of 10 years.
Currently we are looking for house captains, house sponsors, and recruiting volunteers to give a day of service. If you are interested please email email@example.com for more information.
All low-income Dayton homeowners will live in warmth, safety and independence.
Rebuilding Together Dayton is a volunteer-driven, non-profit organization that assists low-income Dayton homeowners, particularly the elderly and disabled, to live in warmth, safety and independence by building community partnerships and providing home rehabilitation.
"It's a great chance for our team to get together and give back to the Dayton community. It's a chance to express our gratitude for their support and lend a helping hand to someone who really needs it. It's always a great day for us as a team and really worthwhile. It's so rewarding when we see the impact we make and how thankful those people really are for our help."
Senior offensive tackle Tom Corcoran
"The University of Dayton football team is very happy to again be a part of the Rebuilding Together project in Dayton. It's something the team looks forward to every year. It's an opportunity to spend the day together as a team and help make somebody's life a little better. You can't ask for a better day than that."
Head Coach Rick Chamberlin
"As a team we pride ourselves on being leaders both on campus and in the community and it's great for us to work together in order to support a great cause. We're in a very privileged position and have an opportunity to give back to a community that supports us so well."
Senior cornerback Kyle Sebetic
"It is a good opportunity to give back to a community who is very supportive of us. It is a very good feeling when you are able to help advance the life of another person by simply giving a few hours of work. Sometimes helping out a fellow American is taken for granted but this is a day when you can put down whatever you have going on in your life and help someone who is in need of help. It is just a great feeling."
