Our MISSION - A Safe and Healthy Home!
Serving the Community for 25 Years!
Since December 1994, Rebuilding Together Greater Harrisburg (formerly Christmas in April) has been providing free home repair and modification services to our low-income homeowners, such as the elderly, disabled, families with children and veterans of war living in Dauphin, Cumberland, Perry and upper York counties. Our goal is to make a sustainable impact and preserve affordable homeownership.
We believe in a safe and healthy home for every person. Mission Together we transform the lives of low-income homeowners by improving the safety and health of their homes and revitalizing their communities.
We are committed to helping distressed communities and homeowners who live near the federal poverty guideline. We respect the integrity, strengths, and assets of all people.
We are a safe and healthy housing organization with a strong volunteer engagement platform.
We value collaboration with other groups who share similar goals.
We believe in the quality of the planning, delivery, and evaluation of our services.
We believe in inclusivity and seek to promote a diversity that is reflective of our communities.
We make this impact through providing necessary repairs free of charge to existing homeowners. These necessary repairs often include home modifications, roofing, plumbing, and electrical repairs and/or improvements - our goal is to provide a warm, safe and dry environment for low-income homeowners, enabling them to live independently and with dignity.
RTGH accomplishes most community work on National Rebuilding Day, typically held on the last Saturday in April. RTGH also provides year round repair services, and plans and prepares "special event" rebuilding projects utilizing the skills of volunteers who make the necessary repairs on each home.
Rebuilding Together Greater Harrisburg is headquartered in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, and is one of many national affiliates throughout the United States. Founded in 1988, the national office www.rebuildingtogether.org provides assistance to affiliates in program development, board and staff development, marketing, communications, and financial management.
