OUR HISTORY

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, county-wide, we have built the expertise and infrastructure to tackle critical home repairs; securing safe and healthy housing for those most in need.

Since inception, RTMD has rehabbed over 1,000 homes and donated over 9 million dollars in market value work to the community.

OUR MISSION:

REPAIRING HOMES,

REVITALIZING COMMUNITIES,

REBUILDING LIVES.

WHY WE’RE NEEDED

There is an urgent challenge facing Miami-Dade County; far too many homeowners have trouble maintaining their homes, resulting in a lack of housing security and stability. The staggering cost of home repair services puts an enormous strain on cost-burdened families, both financially and emotionally. Additionally, once a home falls into serious disrepair, it can lead to a plethora of safety and health hazards for residents.

Our efforts:

  • Preserve naturally occurring affordable housing

  • Stabilize communities

  • Ensure the safety and health of residents

OUR VISION IS

SAFE HOMES AND

COMMUNITIES

FOR EVERYONE.

Our Impact in 2018

REBUILDING HOMES AND LIVES

Help us achieve our vision of safe homes and communities for everyone.
