To protect our volunteers and homeowners and reduce the risk of community-spread of Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19), Rebuilding Together Greater Harrisburg has decided to postpone our Annual Event Day on April 25 and other year round projects and activities until further notice. All home visits, home assessments and workdays will be postponed until at least May 1st. In late April we will review the situation, evaluate the risk and reevaluate the schedule with our partners and volunteers.

We are accepting applications for free home repairs and we are taking phone calls so please reach out to us if you have questions or need assistance.

We appreciate your support and understanding as we try to do our part to “flatten the curve” of virus spread. We look forward to getting back to our hands-on work when it is possible.

Our dear friend and Board Member of Rebuilding Together Greater Harrisburg, Riitta Lukkari passed away on Sunday, June 23, 2019 from a very rare and aggressive cancer. Our organization will never be the same without her. Riitta was a very special individual who, over the past 23 years committed herself to helping our most vulnerable homeowners live in a safe and healthy home. Riitta befriended many of the homeowners and remained in touch with them ensuring their needs were being met.

Our volunteers truly enjoyed working with Riitta and had this to say “We certainly lost a beautiful human being and Riitta will be missed by all. I am very fortunate to have spent the last 8 years getting to know Riitta through the Rebuilding Together team of people and will be forever grateful for that.

Riitta’s spirit will be with us at the future Rebuilding Together events and I look forward to sharing memories of her with the group.”
