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, inefficient 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 Rebuild Events, 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.

Energize Colonial Heights is a first-time event hosted by CivicSpark volunteers working with Rebuilding Together Sacramento, SMUD, and the Sacramento Association of Realtors. CivicSpark is an AmeriCorps program, which strives to raise awareness and build capacity for the environmental issues that California faces. This event on Saturday, May 14 is an opportunity to help low-income families in the Colonial Heights neighborhood in Sacramento lower their monthly energy bill and have a more energy-efficient home. Volunteers are needed! Volunteers can help with registration, set up/clean up, house volunteers, and house captains for each house. Volunteers will complete basic upgrades to increase home energy efficiency including weather stripping, caulking, LED lighting installation, and some miscellaneous repairs. Volunteers will receive a free t-shirt and a healthy lunch and plenty of water.

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!
