Fee for Service

This program provides minor repairs and modifications that improve accessibility and safety within the home… for those who do NOT qualify as “Low-Income” homeowners. The ‘fee’ paid provides the following: A complimentary home safety inspection with recommendations (no application necessary!) and a quick and immediate scheduling of your installation by qualified and experienced installers. Any funds raised are returned to the Safe at Home program and cover “free” services provided to low-income homeowners.

Call David Grantham at 916-455-1880 x3 to learn more about our Fee For Service program.

Rebuild Day Events 

We host various home repair events where an average of 40 volunteers work on each home.  Rebuild Day events occur in specific neighborhoods in the spring and fall.  Homeowners are notified when their neighborhood is selected and provided an opportunity to apply for services.

The work for this program is provided by volunteers and there is no cost to the homeowner. Please see our income guidelines below.

For more information about our Rebuild Day events and our current Rebuild Day, contact Sandy Econome at 916-455-1880 x7 or visit our Rebuild Day Events page.

Home Energy Conservation Program

The Home Energy Conservation Program provides minor energy conservation measures such as weather stripping, caulking, CFL or LED light bulbs, etc. that increase comfort in the home, reduce greenhouse gases by up to 1 ton per home annually, and help lower a homeowner’s utility bill by as much as 10-20%.  Implemented as a partnership, this program is a joint effort of Rebuilding Together Sacramento,  Sacramento Association of Realtors Foundation, and the Sacramento Metropolitan Air Quality Management District. The work is provided year-round by an experienced staff member.

  • Wait time:  1-2 weeks
