Rebuilding Together volunteers will participate our annual 2022 Rebuilding Days. Volunteers will complete critical home repairs to help more than 30 low-income families throughout Greater Des Moines.

We utilize over 700 volunteers for these projects and repair over 30 homes. We join together to revitalize our city and help our neighbors stay safe, healthy and dry.

Examples of home repairs that may be provided: repairing or replacing flooring, windows, steps, wheelchair ramps, stabilizing a shower, kitchen cabinet installs, removal and install of back steps, landscaping, and repainting of exterior and many more. These improvements will enable the families to live in a safe and healthy home.

Interested in Volunteering?

Volunteers of all skill levels help repair and improve our project homes. Each home has a House Captain, who organizes and manages a project, and a Crew Coordinator who works directly with the family and guides them through the process.
