Rebuilding Together SummerCorps Lafayette
Rebuilding Together is a housing nonprofit with affiliates in Louisiana and across the country. Together, we transform the lives of low-income homeowners by improving the safety and health of their homes and revitalizing our communities. Visit our website to learn more. Our focus provides critical repairs, accessibility modifications, and energy efficiency upgrades to low-income homes and community centers at no cost to service recipients. Our impact extends beyond the individuals served to revitalize and stabilize vulnerable neighborhoods and communities across the country. Our 150 local affiliates complete 10,000 rebuild projects a year thanks to the efforts of nearly 200,000 volunteers. Please email Jessie Permar at with any questions. Rebuilding Together Silicon Valley serves San Jose and surrounding communities in Santa Clara County. The home repair needs are widespread throughout the county, with our focus on meeting the needs of low-income seniors and/or disabled (90%) who've raised a family in their home of many years and want to remain independent in their home as long as their health will allow. Their limited income now only provides barely enough for food and medication, so they just haven't had the resources to keep up their home. Our average homeowner is a 70 year old widow who has lived in her home for 26 years; her average income is $1766 per month, just over 20% of median income. 42% of our homeowners live in mobile homes, the only 'affordable' housing option in our area. Our AmeriCorps member is critical in helping get the word out into the community and helping manage the meeting of these unmet needs.
