About Rebuilding Together Southeast Michigan
Rebuilding Together Southeast Michigan (RTSEMI) is one of 129 affiliates in 39 states, which mobilize volunteers to perform critical home repairs at no cost to help low-income homeowners, veterans, seniors, persons with disabilities, and vulnerable families with children. Rebuilding Together puts the Principles of Healthy Homes into practice to correct health and safety hazards in older, high-risk homes through a volunteer-based delivery system of unmatched cost effectiveness. As a local nonprofit organization, RTSEMI is grounded in our community, partnering each year with 40 small businesses, corporations, civic and faith-based organizations to mobilize around 1,000 volunteers, assisting around 50 low-income homeowner households per year. Since 1992, RTSEMI has leveraged $8.8 million in volunteer labor to help over 1,100 low-income households.
