Safe homes and communities for everyone.
Frank Mackle and Joseph Myrtetus established the Miami-Dade affiliate of Rebuilding Together, formerly known as Christmas in April, after Hurricane Andrew ravaged the Greater Miami area in 1992.
For over 25 years, Rebuilding Together Miami-Dade (RTMD) has provided home repair and modification services for Miami-Dade county’s most vulnerable homeowners. As the only local organization addressing this particular need, we have built the expertise and infrastructure to tackle critical home repairs; securing safe and healthy housing for those most in need.
WHY WE’RE NEEDED
No homeowner should have to forgo basic home maintenance in order to afford food or medications. Unfortunately, many factors such as job loss, disability, or expensive medical bills often force homeowners to make difficult choices about how to prioritize a limited source of income to meet life’s many demands.
Rebuilding Together Miami-Dade restores home safety and accessibility for homeowners with limited disposable income to invest in repairs and maintenance. In as little as one day, our volunteers make a lifelong difference in service recipients’ lives.
Rebuilding Together Miami-Dade provides repairs and modifications to improve the safety and health of single-family homes, free of charge for service recipients. Each home’s work-scope reflects the unique needs of each home. Common repairs include plumbing and electrical repairs, grab bars and home safety upgrades, energy efficiency improvements, ADA bathroom modifications, roof repair or replacement, interior and exterior painting, and much more.
