We believe that everyone deserves to live in a safe and healthy home.
For low-income homeowners, Rebuilding Together Pittsburgh is the trusted resource that provides home improvements, repairs, and partner referrals to create safe and healthy homes.
Rebuilding Together Pittsburgh’s Vision
Through its blended suite of programming, Rebuilding Together Pittsburgh (RTP) provides qualifying homeowners with comprehensive owner-occupied home rehabilitations and repairs at no cost. Working closely with community partners, local contractors, construction and program staff, and volunteers, RTP provides qualifying individuals with home rehabilitations, energy efficiency upgrades, and safe and healthy housing improvements at no cost to the homeowner. Above all, our work provides improved quality of life and peace of mind for homeowners in need, strengthening their families and communities in the process.
Where we live not only affects our socioeconomic health, but also our physical health. Lead-based paint poisoning, second-hand smoke, mold, carbon monoxide and falls in the home are significant threats to families, particularly lower-income families.
Rebuilding Together Pittsburgh addresses these health disparities through targeted interventions –repairs and modifications – that improve the health of the home, at no cost to the homeowner.
Every family served by RTP also receives a comprehensive needs assessment and assistance connecting them to other services to help maintain their home as a long-term family asset. This includes financial counselling, wills preparation, weatherization and more.
For nearly 30 years, RTP has worked to positively impact the lives and well-being of neighbors in need across Allegheny County, growing incrementally to include a vast network of community partners and volunteers equally committed to providing comprehensive care to low-income homeowners, their families, and communities.
