Why should my group participate in the Volunteer [Re]Builder Program?


  • [Re]pairing Homes: The Volunteer [Re]Builder Program allows your group to build stronger connections while serving the local community.

  • [Re]vitalizing Communities: Many neighbors throughout the region live in unsafe conditions without the physical and financial resources to address the necessary home repairs. RT RVA volunteers help our neighbors avoid unnecessary illness or injury, bankruptcy, or even homelessness by completing repairs at no cost to the residents.

  • [Re]building Lives: The neighbors you will serve will be among the most vulnerable in our community, including seniors, individuals with disabilities, families with children, and veterans.


Do our volunteers need to be skilled at repairs? No! We welcome volunteers of all skill levels, from those without experience to those with expert-level skills. Our program team will work with you to find a project that fits your volunteers' levels of expertise with repairs.

How many volunteers should my group bring to the project? Groups may bring up to 20 volunteers at a time. To ensure comfort with COVID-19 safety protocols, options to organize volunteers in smaller shift rotations are available. In addition, we allow our partners to sponsor a project without providing volunteers.

Do we have to provide volunteers to support RT RVA?

Absolutely not! Not all organizations are ready to return to in-person volunteer events but still want to support their community and neighbors. We welcome your donations which will help us assist more households.
