Project Description

KICKOFF TO REBUILD

For the past 25 years, Rebuilding Together has partnered with the NFL to host projects in Super Bowl cities across the country, rebuilding houses and bringing neighborhoods together. To date, affiliates across the nation have repaired over 140 homes, engaged more than 5,000 volunteers, and invested $5 million+ in communities. This NFL-sanctioned event provides provides free critical home repairs to vulnerable communities in an effort to address health and safety concerns at home.

On January 31, 2020 in celebration of Super Bowl LIV, Rebuilding Together Miami-Dade partnered with Lowes, the Official Home Improvement Retail Sponsor of the NFL, and a variety of community and corporate partners to revitalize West Coconut Grove. Neighbors in this historic community received critical health and safety repairs performed by skilled laborers and volunteers from Rebuilding Together, Lowe’s, and local organizations. Repairs ranged based on the condition of the home and the homeowner’s unique needs and included accessible bathroom modifications, new flooring, kitchen renovations, exterior beautification, electrical repairs, and so much more!

We are so grateful to everyone involved in Kickoff to Rebuild! We have had incredible feedback from homeowners and business owners who were part of this event as well as the community as a whole–thank you for helping us repair nine homes and three small, black-owned businesses in West Coconut Grove!

West Coconut Grove, known by locals as, ‘The West Village’ is a historically black neighborhood developed in the 1880’s. For many years this community thrived–everyone knew their neighbors and frequented local watering holes and businesses owned and operated by community members. In recent years, the West Village has experienced rapid development and gentrification. What was once a community of mostly modest shotgun and wood vernacular houses has quickly turned into street after street of ultra-modern duplexes. Descendants of this once thriving community face the threat of losing homes built by their families and are fighting tooth and nail to keep their heritage intact.
