We VERY occasionally accept donations of gently used tools and home appliances(i.e. cabinets, refrigerators, and etc.). Due to limited storage space, we must have an active project in immediate need of the item you wish to donate.
We are sponsored by a large variety of sponsors, foundations, service organizations, clubs, associations, and individuals. Click here to learn more.

Why are Rebuilding Together’s services needed?Ashley Snow2018-04-16T04:07:06-04:00
Sometimes, our neighbors fall on hard times and become physically or financially unable to care for or repair their homes. At Rebuilding Together Miami-Dade, we believe no homeowner should have to forgo food or medications in order to afford home repairs. With help from hundreds of skilled and unskilled volunteers, we provide the skills and resources to make homes safe and healthy.
How are homes selected?Ashley Snow2018-05-14T03:43:02-04:00
Homeowners must submit a completed homeowner application and financial information for review and approval by the Rebuilding Together Miami-Dade staff. Once a homeowner application is approved, our project manager conducts a site visit to assess the home for necessary repairs. If both the homeowner and the home qualify for repairs, they then go onto our waiting list until RTMD has adequate funding to complete their project.
