Your contributions help support New Yorkers like Grace Thomas:
Grace lives in her Brooklyn home with her husband Lloyd and their 40-year old son who suffers from mental health problems. In 2013, their basement, which used to serve as a rec room for their son, was severely damaged by Hurricane Sandy. Then, in 2015, Grace was diagnosed with breast cancer and a tumor that deteriorated her spiral cord and left her wheelchair bound. Once Grace lost her mobility and independence, she was only able to access a small portion of their first floor living room and was not able to leave her home without the help of friends and family.
But with the help of generous supporters, Rebuilding Together NYC was able to repair their basement, and install an outdoor ramp and indoor stair lift. Grace is now able to safely enter and exit her home and access her bedroom and bathroom upstairs.
With YOUR support, we can provide more families like Grace and Lloyd with a safe and healthy home in 2017. Help us help our New York City neighbors.
Serving all five New York City boroughs, Rebuilding Together NYC is a nonprofit housing organization that brings volunteers and communities together to improve the homes and lives of low-income New Yorkers. Together we transform lives by improving the safety and health of New York City homes and revitalizing our communities. We provide critical home repairs, with particular programs for those who are elderly, disabled, families with children, veterans, and survivors of natural disasters. Rebuilding Together NYC also trains low-income, underemployed and unemployed individuals in the skills necessary to obtain employment in the construction industry. All of our services are provided at no cost to our homeowners and community members.
