Rebuilding Together is responding to a crisis in our country – the shrinking availability of affordable housing stock and the growing number of people who, because of age, disability or lack of resources, live in dilapidated or inaccessible housing.
Rebuilding Together Sacramento is a local affiliate that is dedicated to preserving homes and neighborhoods by providing free home repairs for low-income homeowners through our Safe at Home and Home Energy Conservation programs. Safe at Home services are also available for a fee to those who do not meet the income requirements. For more information, visit our Home Improvement Services page.

Rebuilding Together Volunteer Carl Hammer Featured on Good Day Sacramento!
Jam Available at Rebuilding Together
Our 91 year old volunteer Carl Hammer is not only our oldest volunteer, he is also a prize-winning jam maker. Carl was featured on Good Day Sacramento talking about his volunteer work with us and his jam. Carl helps us as a volunteer by organizing all of our materials for our Rebuild Days. He has also made over 20,000 jars of his jam which he donates to Rebuilding Together. In fact, Carl’s jam is so good, he won first place for jams at this year’s California State Fair. Carl’s Jam Works includes flavors such as: Spiced Peach, Strawberry, Pomegranate, Red Raspberry, Blackberry, Apricot, Apricot Pineapple, White Peach, Strawberry Rhubarb, Boysenberry, and Marion Berry. Suggestion donation for the jams is $6 a jar, three jars for $15, and 12 jars for $60 and all proceeds go to Rebuilding Together to support keeping low-income homeowners in Sacramento and El Dorado Counties safe and healthy in their homes.
Carl’s jams make a great gift! If you would like to pick up some jam and support Rebuilding Together, call our office at (916) 451-1880. Jams can be picked up from our office at 8231 Alpine Avenue in Sacramento.

Comments from our Homeowners
Thank you so much for the great services you provided for me! After a week in ICU and 3 weeks in Rehab, I returned home...but I could not have remained at home without Rebuilding Together. The ramp that your volunteers installed was just what I needed to be able to enter and exit my house. And then, to become independent, grab bars were installed in my shower. (I no longer needed someone to help me shower!)
It's amazing that, after referring others to you, I was in need of your help. Thank you so much and please extend my gratitude to your staff and volunteers.
I am now walking on my own and can use the steps. And I am back at work!
