Rebuilding Together improves the homes and lives of seniors, individuals with disabilities, veterans, and families. All are low-income, 77% are Black, and the average age is 74: most are at higher risk of contracting COVID-19. And the pandemic has exacerbated safety concerns: no matter the condition, clients must stay in their homes. With its volunteer service days postponed, many home repairs were put on hold. Some can wait; others cannot. Emergency needs like roofing repairs, bathroom leaks, grab bars, and handrails can turn into much larger problems, so skilled contractors have been hired and materials, including safety gear, have been purchased unplanned and challenging costs. As public health guidelines relax, RT will add virtual home visits and inspections to limit human contact, slowly reintroduce volunteer activities, and restart outdoor projects. Construction isn't a virtual activity but RT finds its way.
