The Safe at Home program was established in 2005 in response to demonstrated community need. The goal of the program is to extend Rebuilding Day repair services to local homeowners throughout the year. Since its inception, Safe at Home has helped RTNB nearly double the number of homeowners served annually.
Safe at Home projects are chosen based on homeowner need and can vary in scope from whole house rehab projects to urgent services, such as heating and plumbing repairs. Homes are evaluated based on Department of Housing and Urban Development Principles of Safe and Healthy Housing, so projects with demonstrated health and safety hazards are prioritized for this program.
