Rebuilding Together Greater Harrisburg

Rebuilding Together Greater Harrisburg Rebuilding Together Greater Harrisburg is a non-profit organization that provides free home repairs for low-income seniors (over 60), veterans of war, disabled homeowners and families with children.
Rebuilding Together believes in a safe and healthy home for every person. This means that we believe disabled and aging homeowners should be able to remain in their homes for as long as possible. We believe that homeowners displaced by natural disaster will get back into safe housing with help from the community. We believe that our nation’s veterans with disabilities deserve safe and accessible homes. Rebuilding Together believes we can preserve affordable homeownership and revitalize communities by providing free home modifications and repairs, making homes safer, more accessible, and more energy efficient. As the economic pressure on low-income families grow, more and more families are placed in the position of choosing between vital necessities and essential home repairs and modifications. Rebuilding Together fills a pressing need in our communities. The rising cost of living and falling social service budgets have left some of our vulnerable neighbors without the most basic of necessities, a warm, safe, and dry home.

Greater Harrisburg (RTGH) is one in over 144 affiliates across the United States and one of the few agencies in the area that offer free home repairs and modifications. Thanks to our wonderful group of volunteers and our generous financial and in-kind donors and contributors.

Mission: Rebuilding Together Greater Harrisburg's (RTGH) mission is to preserve and revitalize houses and communities, assuring that low-income homeowners, from the elderly (over the age of 60) and disabled, to families with children, live in warmth, safety, and independence. In partnership with local greater Harrisburg communities (including Dauphin, Cumberland, and Perry counties) our goal is to make a sustainable impact.

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.”
