Rebuilding Together Washington Countyhttp://www.TogWC.org
Rebuilding Together Washington County works to counteract home health and safety hazards present in affordable housing in an effort to prevent homelessness and reduce hospital visits. RTWC believes every person deserves a safe home and to promote that vision the organization completes home repairs for homeowners. Virtually every project completed makes the home safer and healthier. Safe and healthy housing is the foundation, framework, and focus of all our programs and projects. RTWC’s Safe and Healthy Housing mission focuses on 25 Health and Safety Priorities in home repair. Many of these repair priorities are simple and straightforward, like making sure homes have working smoke detectors. Other priorities require a wide range of skills and community partners to complete. RTWC does not have the resources to meet all 25 priorities at this time; we focus on immediate needs that help make the difference between homeownership and homelessness and between dependence and independence.
