The average annual income of a Rebuilding Together family is $22,000 – hardly enough for food, medicine, and transportation, let alone home maintenance and repairs. Working with Montgomery County’s most vulnerable homeowners (seniors, veterans, people with disabilities, and families with young children), RTMC annually provides 100 low-income households with critical repairs, energy efficiency upgrades, and accessibility modifications – at no cost. Staff and volunteers unite to make homes safe and secure, performing everything from small tasks like installing bathroom handrails to large-scale weatherization projects and system replacements. But that’s not all. Because many issues could be avoided with periodic maintenance, RTMC empowers its clients with information about how to perform minor repairs with their own hands. A Homeowner Resource Packet connects residents to other nonprofits and agencies that provide additional support, such as utility bill assistance, tax credits, and emergency food; with permission, staff will make the referral themselves. Your support does more than repair a roof – it keeps our neighbors off the streets and in their homes, safe and sound.
