Rebuilding Together Greater Bismarck/Mandan Honorary Chairpersons Senator John and Mikey Hoeven.

Senator John and Mikey Hoeven have been named honorary chairs of Rebuilding Together for the greater Bismarck-Mandan area since 2012. Rebuilding Together is a local nonprofit organization working to revitalize communities by providing home repair services for the elderly, low-income, and disabled.

 “Rebuilding Together fits squarely in the North Dakota tradition of neighbor helping neighbor,” the Hoeven’s said. “The organization’s work to help our seniors, the financially disadvantaged and people with disabilities ensures that those in need can live in dignity, comfort and safety in their homes.”

 Serving the Bismarck-Mandan community for 15 years, Rebuilding Together offers assistance to people who own their homes, but due to physical limitations or economic hardship, are unable to properly maintain their home. Rebuilding Together works in partnership with local corporations and volunteers to provide free rehabilitation and critical repair services.

 Since its inception in 1997, Rebuilding Together has raised over $600,000 in in-kind contributions and gifts, and provided free rehabilitation and repairs to 133 homes in the Bismarck-Mandan area. Over 5,000 volunteers have donated their time and skills to replace floors and carpeting, repair plumbing, replace unsafe electrical wiring, install handicap accessible devices, paint homes, and repair windows.

 “For the past 14 years, Rebuilding Together has provided a vital service to the Bismarck-Mandan community,” said Lisa Lund, co-president of Rebuilding Together. “Entering our 15th year, we are thrilled to be partnering with the Hoeven family as we work to provide needed assistance to people who own their homes and revitalize neighborhoods.”

 “It is an honor to have Senator Hoeven and his wife Mikey serve as honorary chairs of Rebuilding Together,” said Rob Knoll, co-president of Rebuilding Together. “Our past successes are a direct result of the wonderful support we have received from the Bismarck-Mandan community. The Hoeven family’s commitment to our organization is a wonderful example of the community’s willingness to help ensure low-income or disabled homeowners have a warm and safe place to call home.”
