Committed to bringing volunteers and communities together to improve the homes and lives of our neighbors in need, Rebuilding Together Central Ohio is a 501(c)3, non-sectarian organization established in 1991 to preserve and revitalize homes and communities in Central Ohio. We want everyone to live in warm, safe and dry homes with independence and dignity.
Safe at Home offers quality emergency repairs and home modifications, helping low income senior and/or disabled homeowners age in place. Services are provided by skilled to semi-skilled volunteers and professional contractors to qualified homeowners. Safe at Home focuses on the areas of heating, plumbing, electrical, falls prevention, fire prevention, indoor air quality, and energy efficiency.
National Rebuilding Day is our signature annual event. On this one day in May, volunteers, corporate sponsors and community organizations join together to make holistic repairs to homes and to revitalize entire communities, making a lasting impression on the families who are served. This is the culmination of a year of planning, evaluating, training, organizing, and mobilizing hundreds of community volunteers as part of a nationwide effort to preserve affordable homeownership.
The Tool Library helps people live in safe and decent housing by providing community residents with access to the tools and equipment necessary for making simple, cost-effective repairs to their homes. Founded in 1976, the Tool Library is one of the oldest and most established in the country. The Tool Library lends over 200 types of tools and nearly 4,500 individual tools to residents of Central Ohio.
