Building a Healthy Neighborhood

Rebuilding Together — a leading national nonprofit in safe and healthy housing that provides low-income homeowners with critical home repairs —joined together with its affiliate, Rebuilding Together St. Louis, to lead its fifth annual Building a Healthy Neighborhood community revitalization project. The effort, supported by lead partner Lowe’s and 275 of its Lowe’s Heroes employee volunteers, was held in St. John, a small community in St. Louis County, October 8–10, and provided more than $760,000 in market value back to the community.

Nearly 500 community and corporate partner volunteers joined together to provide critical repairs for 14 homes and to revitalize a neighborhood community space. The majority of homeowners impacted are longtime members of the St. Louis community and range in need of support. Volunteers participated in a variety of repairs including flooring repairs and replacement, weatherization repairs, roof and handrail replacements, accessibility modifications, painting, landscaping, and other major home rehabilitations.
