Non-profit accepting applications for free home repairs for low-income homeowners

Posted on July 13th, 2010 by Sara Willy

Local non-profit Rebuilding Together Seattle is accepting applications from low-income homeowners—including elderly, disabled, veterans, and/or families with children—that need help completing work on their homes, and non-profit or community organizations in need of facility repairs.

RTS is connecting with health facilities, government agencies, shelters, senior centers, and community centers to inform others about our program.  RTS is need of community leaders to share the word about our program to those in need, with a goal to assist more clients each year.

RTS recently began a Veterans Program, in an effort to bring veteran community members together to help low-income veteran homeowners and their families. RTS also launched an Annual Repair Program that will focus on helping qualified homeowners with quick safety fixes around the house. These fixes include installing grab bars, handrails, skid strips, and updating to energy efficient light bulbs.

Those interested in applying may call the RTS office to request an application, or view and print one online here. For more information, check out the RTS blog, or contact the RTS office at 206-682-1231 or via email at
