Rebuilding Together Kent County brings neighbors together to improve homes and lives. We put together donated building materials, gifts of money, and countless hours of skilled and unskilled volunteer time to repair and rehabilitate the houses of low-income homeowners who are elderly, disabled and/or families with children. All work is done at no cost to the homeowner. Whatever your skills and experience may be, there is a way you can help work toward a safe and healthy home for every person in Kent County.
Our volunteers have donated thousands of hours, to rebuild a kitchen addition; reconstruct a front porch; repair plumbing, floors, roofs and electrical wiring; install windows and doors; make accessibility improvements, widening doorways; construct ramps; and reconstruct a bathroom, including replacing a tub with a shower for improved accessibility.
Our referrals come from County and State agencies such as the Departments of Housing & Community Development and Social Services, town officials, churches, neighbors and family members.
Community partners for our projects have included Mercantile Eastern Shore Bank, Chestertown Rotary Club, Kent Youth, Washington College, Galena United Methodist Youth Group, Presbyterian Church of Chestertown, BB&T Bank of Millington, Peoples Bank, Chester River Friends Meeting, United Way of Kent County, and the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of the Chester River.
We bring neighbors together to repair homes and revitalize communities, preserving homeownership, strengthening families and helping sustain the historical richness and intergenerational legacies that make Kent County a special place to live.
We repair and rehabilitate the houses of low-income homeowners who are elderly and/or disabled and/or families with children, at no cost to the homeowner, by combining gifts of money, donated materials and supplies, and countless hours of skilled and unskilled volunteer labor. To the extent that they are physically able, the homeowner, along with their family members, friends and neighbors, are encouraged to work alongside our volunteers. Since we began in September 2004, we have completed projects in Edesville, Golts, Butlertown, Galena, Rock Hall, Chestertown, Chesterville and Worton.
