When needed, the sound of hammers and the droning of drills is the finest hymn of all.

Our Mission

Repairing homes, revitalizing communities, rebuilding lives.

OUr vision

Safe homes and communities for everyone.

our work

For more than 20 years, we have been dedicated to repairing the homes of our neighbors in need. Our work falls across the entire spectrum of home repair and accessibility modifications.

Sometimes it is ordering a water heater replacement for a senior who has not had hot water for several months, calling in the exterminator for a veteran with a major rat infestation, or organizing volunteers to build a ramp for a disabled individual with no accessible way in and out of their home.

Whatever the need, we rely on an extensive network of partners, local businesses, and our force of over 600 highly skilled and community volunteers to respond quickly and effectively.

Low-Income homeowners in Petaluma, particularly seniors, disabled persons, and families are eligible to apply for services. Non-profit organizations may also apply for repairs to facilities.

Rebuilding Together National

In 1973, community members of Midland, Texas formed a small organization dedicated to repairing the homes of their neighbors in need. They called themselves Christmas in April, and every Spring they would lead volunteers in home repair and revitalization projects. 

This small organisation eventually gained national recognition and grew into Rebuilding Together, a network of affiliates across the United States still dedicated to the original goal of neighbors helping neighbors.
