Thank you for your support!

Every dollar you give to Rebuilding Together Pittsburgh is worth so much more to the community. By leveraging construction industry contacts for material discounts and volunteer groups for labor, RTP provides a positive return on investment for the community.

Some of most urgent needs include:

Appliances:
$500 – The homes we work in often lack range hoods, which are essential for proper venting of carbon monoxide. We also frequently see gas leaking from stoves and hot water tanks. As we seal air leaks around the home through our weatherization efforts, leaking gas must be eliminated to insure safety. In 2015, we replaced 49 stoves and hot water tanks and added 29 range hoods.

Windows: $250 – The median age of housing units in the City of Pittsburgh is 79 years old—much older than the statewide median age of 58 years and the national median age of 35 years. The windows in these aging structures are often inoperable and significant drafts can cause energy bills to skyrocket. A new, double-hung window serves as both an energy saver and enhanced security for families. In 2015, we replaced over 300 windows.

Screen Doors: $100 – Replacing a worn, rusted screen door that may have torn screens and a broken lock with a new security screen door is an important element for our homeowners’ safety and security. Because the average income of homeowners served by RTP is $1,025 per month, this screen door is unlikely to be purchased without our help. In 2015, we replaced more than 100 screen doors.

Grab Bars & Handrails: $50 – Approximately 70 percent of RTP’s efforts assist homeowners that are aged 60 or older. One out of three seniors experience a major fall each year, and those falls often cause broken bones and/or head injuries that make independent life increasingly difficult. RTP regularly installs grab bars and handrails in our clients homes—two significant preventative efforts encouraged by medical professionals everywhere. In 2015, we installed over 150 grab bars and handrails.
