Quad Cities/IA-IL: Rebuilding Together Quad Cities, a volunteer based home repair organization, is seeking applications from military veterans who will need assistance with major home repairs this fall.
The organization is currently working with two generous corporate donors on a fall 2014 project that would provide home repairs for local veterans. To qualify for the free assistance, veterans must:
• Have received an honorable discharge from their branch of the service;
• Own their own home in either Scott or Rock Island Counties,
• Meet Rebuilding Together Quad Cities income guidelines, and
• Show a need for major repairs that would provide a safer home environment or otherwise add to the veteran's quality of life.
Applications are available to owners of standard (stick-built) homes. Mobile homes do not qualify. Repairs should be ones that the veteran or their family are either physically or financially unable to do on their own. Repairs will be provided at no cost to the selected homeowners.
Applications are available on the group's website at www.rebuildingtogetherquadcities.org. For all other questions, please call 563-322-6534.
The veteran-assistance project is an addition to the group's standard fall workday on Sept. 27, where Rebuilding Together volunteers from local corporations, churches and civic organizations will provide home repairs for elderly, low income and disabled homeowners. Rebuilding Together Quad Cities was founded as Hearts and Hammers in 1990, and, with the help of generous community volunteers and supporters, has completed more than 800 home repairs in the Quad Cities and surrounding area.
Rebuilding Together is the nation's largest non-profit organization dedicated to providing a safe home for every person.
