What is National Rebuilding Month?
It's a campaign to highlight the connection between our homes and health and to encourage everyone to take steps to be safer and healthier at home. National Rebuilding Month is an annual month-long call to service during April, culminating with National Rebuilding Day, the last Saturday of the month. This year, it will be April 24, 2021. We invite you to get involved in 2021 (click to download PDF).

History of National Rebuilding Month to Support Rebuilding Together
National Rebuilding Month originated in 1973 in Midland, Texas with volunteers teaming up to help a neighbor rebuild their home. The group eventually founded Rebuilding Together, once named “Christmas in April,” and gathered around a month of service each year in April. The mission quickly grew beyond the idea of providing service one month per year to bringing volunteers together to provide neighbors in need with critical repairs year-round. Today, Rebuilding Together affiliates are finding creative ways to move the mission forward safely and continue serving neighbors in need of home repairs.
