Project Description

VETERAN REPAIRS

It is estimated that more than 4.3 million veterans have a combined family income of less than $20,000, making it difficult to provide for the necessary repairs to a family home. Additionally, the majority of the 23 million veterans living in the U.S. have reached the age of retirement and will soon live on an even smaller, fixed income.

Rebuilding Together’s Veterans Home Repairs program was created to meet the growing needs of veterans from past and present wars. We fill the gaps in modifications and repair services that retired and active service men and women struggle to meet free of charge for service recipients. RTMD’s goal is to provide safe and accessible housing for all low-income veterans in Miami-Dade County.

Home provides stability. And that word, stability, is a big word. It’s bigger than it sounds because there are so many people in america who don’t have a place to call home. I’m blessed and I won’t take it for granted.
