Rebuilding Together Aurora

$30,000

Rebuilding Together Aurora brings volunteers and communities together to improve the homes of low-income homeowners so that they may live in warmth, safety, and independence. This grant was awarded for RTA's Year-Round Repair Program which will provide smaller scale, more immediate repairs to an additional 12 to 18 low-income seniors and disabled homeowners, focusing on ADA modifications and fall prevention services. For the Repair program, RTA has partnered with Quad County Urban League's YouthBuild program that teaches youth, ages 16 to 24, construction trade skills in a classroom and real life setting.
