Repairing homes, revitalizing communities, rebuilding lives
A safe and healthy home for every person.
RTS brings volunteers and communities together to improve the homes and lives of low-income homeowners and to help seniors and the disabled live safely in their homes.
There is a direct connection between the conditions of a home and the residents’ health and safety. Unsafe and unhealthy conditions account for many leading causes of preventable illness and injuries, school absenteeism and neighborhood deterioration. Preserving the history and intergenerational wealth of our neighborhoods is vital to our community’s immediate and future health.
Homes can put occupants at high risk for fires and falls, moisture and mold, asthma and allergies, toxic exposures such as carbon monoxide, and many other hazards.
We decrease those risks by providing home improvement services focused on the principles of keeping a home safe, energy-efficient, dry, maintained, and clean, pest-free, containment free and ventilated.
RTS makes it all possible by bringing together numerous community partners, volunteers and donors to strengthen lives and neighborhoods.
