Community Project Application
Rebuilding Together Aurora (RTA) is a safe and healthy housing organization. Our mission is to bring volunteers and communities together to improve the homes and lives of low-income homeowners. Rebuilding Together Aurora wants to ensure that there is a safe and healthy home for every person. RTA provides these services at no cost to qualified homeowners.
Scope of Work
Rebuilding Together Aurora utilizes volunteers for projects throughout the year. For community projects, Rebuilding Together Aurora can provide the opportunity for small groups to large groups to complete projects at community centers, schools, community gardens, and other non for profit facilities. Community projects are typically minor repair (painting, planting shrubs) that a general volunteer can complete.
