Funding for Rebuilding Together Mohawk Valley projects is made possible by support from our generous sponsors as well as through grant opportunities. We are an entirely volunteer organization comprised of local individuals, and we rely on businesses, organizations and local universities to provide pools of laborers to assist us on our Rebuilding Day and Heroes at Home endeavors.
The Rebuilding Day program repairs and renovates homes of people who, due to age, financial limitations, or disability, cannot do the work themselves. Hundreds of skilled and unskilled volunteers give their time on the last Saturday in April to create safer, brighter, and warmer environments. Repairs and renovations differ from house to house. The work may include: painting, carpentry, plumbing, electrical, weatherization, clean-up, yard work and other necessary repairs. Applicants must be low-income, elderly or disabled persons who live in the Utica area and both own and live in their home.
Homeowners can apply for assistance and participate alongside volunteers in many ways.
Typically, labor and many supplies are donated. While homeowners do not pay for services, family members are asked to welcome the volunteers and work alongside them if possible. Our work is done with families and neighborhoods, not for them.
