Rebuilding Together Dutchess County
This has been a challenging year and more than ever, our neighbors need a safe place to call home, a safe place to live, learn, play, grow, work and age. As we approach the end of the year and the holiday season, we are very aware of the many neighbors who still need help to ensure their home is a healthy and safe place to live.
Living in an unsafe home can have long-term negative effects on our health. Many neighbors in our community are unable to make repairs and modifications to improve their quality of life and health at home. Thankfully, Rebuilding Together is there for our neighbors in need and can provide repairs at no cost for neighbors unable to make those modifications themselves. In our latest survey we found that:
• Nearly two thirds of neighbors who reported their health was less than good prior to repairs said their health improved after the repairs were completed.
• Almost nine in ten of the most stressed neighbors served feel less stress about home repairs and maintenance.
• Neighbors reported an increased ability to pay for daily necessities.
• Seven in ten people who received repairs from Rebuilding Together report low or no chance of falling.
As we spend more time at home, it should be a safe place. Together we can make a difference in our community. We hope you will consider becoming a [Re]Builder and being part of our goal of safe homes and communities for everyone.
