RTGLAÂ proudly services low-income homeowners that reside within Los Angeles and the South Bay areas.
Our Target Groups are Seniors, Disabled, Veterans and Low Income Families
Through our Home Modifications Program, we aim to improve safety and accessibility within and around the home.Â Wheelchair ramps, handrails, improved lighting, lever handles on doors andÂ faucets and grab bars in showers are some of the ways we help homeowners live in and access their homes safely.
Occupational Therapists partner with us and share their expertise to determine areas within the home that can be easily modified.Â Reducing the risk of falls and injuries in and around the home allows these homeowners to Age in PlaceÂ in their very ownÂ home that they so veryÂ love.

National Rebuilding Day
National Rebuilding Day is our signature annual event. This event occurs in April and is the culmination of a year of planning, evaluating, training, organizing, and mobilizing hundreds of thousands of community volunteers. Volunteers join local affiliate leaders to repair and restore houses and nonprofit facilities, revitalizing entire communities and making a lasting impression on the families and individuals who are helped.
Safe at Home
The primary goal of Rebuilding Togetherâ€™s Safe at Home program is to address home repair and maintenance issues that potentially present a safety risk or limit the access to or within the home. This strategy is driven by Rebuilding Togetherâ€™s vision of a Safe and Healthy Home for everyone.
While the green movement has only gained momentum in the past few years, Rebuilding Together affiliates have been utilizing green practices â€” and providing green home rehabilitation â€” since our founding over 20 years ago. We believe that home repair and rehabilitation are inherently green.
Gulf Coast Operations
In 2005, Rebuilding Togetherâ€™s Gulf Coast Operations Initiative was launched in response to the devastation of Hurricanes Katrina and Rita. We are well on our way to fulfilling the goal of our Rebuild 1000 program, enabling hundreds of homeowners and their families to return to their homes along the Gulf Coast. The Gulf Coast Operations Initiative continues to rebuild low-income homes and to develop the capacity of our Gulf Coast affiliates, from Mississippi, Louisiana, and Southeast Texas.
Rebuilding Togetherâ€™s Veterans Housing Initiative was created to meet the growing needs of veterans from past and present wars. The initiative fills gaps in home repair services for retired and active service members by increasing the homeâ€™s accessibility, enabling veterans to live independently and safely in their own homes.
Rebuilding Togetherâ€™s AmeriCorps program, called the Rebuilding Together CapacityCorps is a high-impact National AmeriCorps program ofÂ 65 full-time AmeriCorps members serving inÂ 33 Rebuilding Together affiliates inÂ 20 states.
RTGLA currently has CapacityCorps Member Kelly Nakamura.
