About Rebuilding Together Greater Harrisburg
The elderly and disabled homeowners and veterans of war in our own community live with leaking roofs, cracked windows and deteriorating floorboards.They cannot even afford to have someone repair their leaking faucet because they must choose between vital necessities to home repairs. These homeowners also cannot afford the modifications that allow them to "age in place" and remain in their own home.What to know: Many of the individuals Rebuilding Together Greater Harrisburg (RTGH) help are in this position, and they live right here in Central Pennsylvania. This is our 25th year of rehabbing houses and non-profit centers in the Cumberland, Dauphin, Perry and upper York counties. Through contributions and donations, skilled and unskilled volunteers can provide the needed repair work and modifications at no cost to these low income homeowners. It is estimated that for every dollar contributed, we can achieve four dollars of value to home repairs. A Home Safety Checklist is provided to each homeowner to help improve their living environment. Our home repair and modification program is provided on a year-round basis. Occupational therapy evaluations are conducted to help improve accessibility in the home.
