If you live in Pierce County or the south King County area and are worried about the cost of repairs for your home, Rebuilding Together South Sound has the solution.
The local non-profit organization uses skilled volunteers to provide free repairs and modifications of homes to low-income homeowners. The group serves seniors, people with disabilities, or families with children.
In addition to projects throughout the year that increase the accessibility of homes or address emergency repairs, Rebuilding Day is held each year on the last Saturday in April, involving hundreds of volunteers in critical, larger-scale home projects . The projects can range from plumbing, electrical and carpentry work to replacing leaking roofs, broken flooring, windows and doors.
Applications for Rebuilding Day 2016 are being accepted 253-238-0977 and www.rebuildingtogetherss.org. The deadline is Dec. 1, 2015. To qualify, applicants must:
• Own their home.
• Meet income guidelines.
• Live in Pierce County, Federal Way or Auburn.
In 12 years of service, Rebuilding Together South Sound has helped hundreds of homeowners stay safe and healthy in their homes, a spokeswoman said. “Please help us achieve our vision of a safe and healthy home for every person by spreading the word about our services to those in need,” she said.
