Help us improve the homes — and lives — of low-income homeowners in the Triangle
Since 2009, Rebuilding Together of the Triangle has been bringing volunteers and communities together throughout Chatham, Durham, Orange and Wake Counties. We strive to improve the lives of homeowners by making urgent repairs and upgrades so that their homes are healthy and safe. We believe that one of the best ways to provide affordable housing is by preserving the homes families currently own, and often have owned for generations.
Our homeowners come to us through referrals from other community agencies, word-of-mouth, or our own community outreach. The urgency of needed repair(s), what the project will encompass, household income level and location are all factors taken into account in choosing which projects we will address next.
We are so grateful for all of the volunteers, donors, partnering community agencies and business that support our work and our homeowners! In 2019 we hope to be able to repair the homes of 110 families, making them safe and healthy. Please join us in answering their needs – make your contribution by the end of this year!

We first met Julia in 2013. There were a few things in her home that needed attention, but she most urgently wanted to address the items which were contributing to repeated trips to the local emergency room with her son Haywood, who suffers from asthma.
After receiving her application and assessing her home, we knew that replacing the home’s carpets with vinyl plank flooring would certainly help mitigate the situation. With the help of a great volunteer force from the Cary Jaycees and funding from the town of Cary, we were able to make that change happen. We love being able to serve others, and we’re looking forward to serving more families like Julia’s and Haywood’s next year.
