Rebuilding Together on Capitol Hill
Rebuilding Together works actively with Members of Congress to talk about important housing issues and inform the members of our most recent projects and mission to preserve affordable homeownership.
Rebuilding Together builds relationships with Federal, State and Local government members to ensure that essential programs and services for low-income homeowners are effective and to display the amazing work we complete in their communities, as well as nationwide.
Rebuilding Together encourages you to get involved. Contact your Member of Congress today and tell them that you support Rebuilding Together’s work to preserve affordable homeownership and provide critical repairs to homeowners living at the poverty line. With your help, we can continue to touch the lives of hundreds of thousands of homeowners stuggling to preserve a sustainable and safe house for their families.
