Call for Community Centers in Need of Repairs

Rebuilding Together NYC is a nonprofit organization that provides free repairs for nonprofit community spaces in New York City. We offer a range of building rehabilitation services, including painting classrooms, community rooms, and offices; repairing walls and flooring; renovating kitchens and bathrooms; landscaping; painting murals; de-cluttering and organizing. 

Currently, we are looking for additional community centers and spaces in the 5 boroughs of NYC that could use our help. While we welcome a broad range of nonprofits in need of our services to apply, we are particularly seeking a space that serves children and mothers for a project in September and a space in Rockaway for an October project commemorating the 2nd anniversary of Hurricane Sandy.

If you are a representative of a nonprofit organization and are interested in our free services, please fill out a brief survey here. Also, please forward this survey to your contacts who have community spaces that might be in need of repairs.
