Rebuilding Together Southwest Illinois is focused on ensuring neighbors who are in need are safe, warm, and dry. As economic situations continue to worsen, along with rapidly increasing costs of homeownership and healthcare, many people who are in need, disabled and senior families are forced to choose between daily necessities and much needed home modifications or repairs. Rebuilding Together Southwest Illinois is committed to rehabilitating the houses of low-income, elderly, and handicapped homeowners, so they can live independently in warmth and safety.

Rebuilding Together Southwest Illinois is an organization where hundreds of volunteers and donors each year can feel the impact of helping their community.

Volunteers leave the project homes exhausted, but with a wonderful sense of joy and accomplishment at how we have improved the quality of life for these neighbors in need. The appreciation expressed by the homeowners makes all our efforts worthwhile.

Every dollar donated to Rebuilding Together is turned into four dollars of home repairs and modifications.
