Rebuilding Together Alexandria brings volunteers, communities, and resources together to improve the homes and lives of Alexandrians in need. Their vision for Alexandria is a vibrant community where people of all income groups and cultures live in safe and healthy homes. Their goal is to impact the overall quality of life for residents in the City of Alexandria in many ways including maintaining affordable housing, revitalizing communities, and stabilizing low- and moderate-income areas by eliminating blight in many neighborhoods. They are dedicated to repairing and rehabilitating homes free of cost for those in need, including the elderly, persons with disabilities, military veterans, and families with children.

Program Highlights

Rebuilding Together Alexandria has many programs that support our mission:

  • National Rebuilding Day - The core initiative of Rebuilding Together Alexandria is National Rebuilding Day when volunteers provide free home repairs for low-income homeowners.
  • Veterans Housing - We assist veterans, active-duty service members and military families maintain safe and accessible housing.
  • Safe & Healthy Homes - This initiative allows the elderly and people with disabilities to age in place by addressing home repair and maintenance issues that present safety risks or limit access to and within their home.
  • Energize Alexandria - Our green housing program saves homeowners money on utility bills and provides healthier home environments and communities through energy efficient home repairs and weatherization.
