Rebuilding Together

Rebuilding Together's mission is to preserve and revitalize houses and communities, assuring that low-income homeowners, from the elderly and disabled to families with children, live with warmth, safety and independence. In partnership with communities, their goal is to make a sustainable impact. They make this impact through providing necessary repairs, free of charge, to existing homeowners. These necessary repairs often include home modifications, roofing, plumbing, and electrical repairs and/or improvements - their goal is to provide a warm, safe and dry environment for low-income homeowners, enabling them to live independently and with dignity.

In support of Rebuilding Together’s mission, COEFI provided the necessary materials and equipment to Girl Scout Cadette Troop 3520 which is led by Linda Kelly and Jillian Bates. Michael Kehoe from Rebuilding Together supervised the activity as the troop answered the call to help make minor repairs to the home of an elderly Alexandria resident in need.
