A Rebuilding Together volunteer hard at work with a smile on his face!

In the past 20 years, Rebuilding Together Greater Bismarck/Mandan, a nonprofit, community based organization, has become one of the leading volunteer organizations in the Capital City. The organization is dedicated to helping low-income homeowners in Bismarck and Mandan, North Dakota live in warmth, safety and independence. The program embraces people of all faiths, all walks of life, all racial and ethnic groups, all ages and all sexes. It is not affiliated with any particular church or religion. Serving low-income homeowners, especially the elderly, people with disabilities, and families with children, Rebuilding Together works in partnership with local corporations; foundations and civic, educational, religious, and community organizations to “rebuild” houses and communities. All of the work is performed by volunteer laborers, utilizing donated materials and resources, at no cost to the homeowner with the work being done on a one-day blitz, usually on the last Saturday in April.

Since being chartered in 1997, the local chapter has raised more than $1,078,000 in cash and in-kind gifts, and more than 6,000 local volunteers have pitched in to help rehabilitate more than 156 homes and/or area charitable non-profit sites throughout the Bismarck-Mandan community.
