Rebuilding Together Baltimore (RTB) is a non-profit that provides home repairs to low-income homeowners at no cost to the homeowners. RTB serves homeowners who live in the Baltimore area and are over the age of 60, people with disabilities, and families with children. The majority of the repairs provided are done by volunteers. Our goal is to make homes warmer, safer, and drier. Since 1989, Rebuilding Together Baltimore has completed repairs on over 1,100 homes in 30 different communities with the help of over 20,000 volunteers.
Bringing volunteers and communities together to improve the homes and lives of homeowners in need in Baltimore City and Baltimore County.

HOW WE DO IT!
- Annual Rebuilding Day: Hundreds of skilled and unskilled volunteers come together in two target neighborhoods on the last Saturday in April to repair thirty to fourty owner-occupied homes and work on community beautification projects.
- Fix-It Program: Repairs are provided for homeowners who live outside of our Rebuilding Day target neighborhoods. Repair needs can range from roof repair to a leaky faucet or broken stair rail. This program operates on a year-round basis.
- Corporate Team-Building Program: Volunteers from corporations with a local presence work on group projects year-round to provide home repairs for low-income homeowners. Projects provide visibility for corporations and team-building and morale-boosting opportunities for their employees.
- Senior Home Independence Pilot (SHIP): This program is an innovative public/private collaboration between RTB, the Baltimore Office of Housing Rehabilitation, the Weatherization Assistance Program, and the Johns Hopkins School of Nursing. Through this program, 30 seniors will receive major renovations, weatherization services, and fall prevention repairs.
