Rebuilding Together Acadiana is a non-profit organization supported entirely by contributions of time, labor, material and money. The organization is dedicated to repairing homes of those who, due to financial hardship, age, and/or disability, cannot do the work themselves. Skilled and unskilled volunteers along with able-bodied members of the recipient’s family and friends complete the repairs, with the homeowner contributing 5% of overall materials cost.
To be eligible for consideration in the program, you must:
– Own and live in your home (we do not work on mobile homes*)
– Be elderly and/or disabled
– Be low income based on federal guidelines.
The next scheduled rebuilding work day is set for April of 2019. If you’d like your house to be considered, please complete the application and return it to Rebuilding Together Acadiana as soon as possible. Applications received by November 1, 2018 will receive first consideration. Rebuilding Together builds wheelchair ramps year round, so there is no deadline for that program.
Please include verification of income and proof of homeownership with your application. Your application can not be processed until all documentation is turned in. The best documents to serve as proof are copies of the following:
– Proof of Ownership: Cash Sale/Bill of Sale or Property Taxes
– Proof of Income: SSI Benefit Statements, US Treasury Checks or Pay Stub
If you or someone you know is interested in volunteering with Rebuilding Together Acadiana, there are still projects that could use your help! For more information, please email us: [email protected] or call us: (337) 291-9910.
