Community Projects

National Rebuilding Day 2024

On April 27th, with the help of over 160 volunteers, we rehabbed 9 homes in Florida City! Homes were painted and landscaped this day, and all properties received critical repairs previously such as new roofs, windows and bathrooms. The gratitude expressed by homeowners was overwhelming, underscoring the profound impact of community-driven initiatives. Their joy serves as a testament to the power of coming together to effect positive change.

[Re]Building with the Miami Open

On March 18th, in partnership with the Miami Open and ATP, we were able to paint the home of a Miami Gardens resident with four professional tennis players- Stefanos Tsitsipas, Caroline Dolehide, Sebastian Korda, and Hailey Baptiste. The homeowner had tears in her eyes, moved by the kindness of the volunteers to help make her home beautiful once again.

SheBuilds Program Launch

On March 8th, International Women’s Day, we proudly launched our newest program, SheBuilds. This initiative aims to empower women by providing them with the skills, resources, and support needed to thrive in the construction industry. The kickoff event was a tremendous success, where we painted 3 women-led households in Little Bahamas using all women volunteers and house captains. We’re excited about the opportunities this program will create for women in South Florida!

Amazon Rebuilding Event

On December 12th, 2023 Amazon Transportation Engineering Services team members came out to West Coconut Grove to paint, landscape, and build a ramp for an elderly homeowner living on her own. On this annual day of giving, Amazon partnered with non-profits around the country, and chose to work with us for their Miami chapter. Thank you for giving back during the holidays and being amazing [Re]Builders!

NBCU Rebuilding Day

On December 1st 2023, volunteers from NBCUniversal Telemundo Enterprises came out to Liberty City to paint the home of a 93 year old woman living in Liberty City. The completed work brought tears to her eyes being able to see her home beautiful once again. Thank you to the amazing NBCU [Re] Builders!

Lowe’s Rebuild A Block

As part of a 2 year commitment, the Lowe’s Rebuild A Block Grant was used to provide critical interior repairs to 6 homes in Liberty City. These repairs ranged from installing a new ramp, to a new bathroom conversion. In late November 2023, after the repairs were complete, volunteers from local Lowe’s stores joined forces to paint and landscape the homes.

Home Depot Operation Surprise

For Veteran’s Day, we partnered with the Home Depot Foundation to give back to those who served our country. As a token of gratitude, Home Depot store representatives painted, landscaped, built patio furniture, and gifted brand new appliances to an Air Force Veteran who served during the Vietnam War, stationed in Thailand.

Wells Fargo Grant Announcement and Volunteer Day

On July 28th, 2023 Rebuilding Together Miami-Dade hosted a volunteer event with the Wells Fargo Foundation, where they announced a grant award of $1.4 million to Rebuilding Together National, to be disbursed to affiliates around the country. The homeowner, Ms. Nunez, is an Army Veteran living in her family home that burned down not too long ago. With help from the grant, Rebuilding Together Miami-Dade was able to renovate her bathroom using a contractor and provide beautiful landscaping with local and national Wells Fargo volunteers, using plants from a local nursery.

Tree Trimming/Thinning Project in West Coconut Grove

To kick off the year, we launched a pilot program in Village West Coconut Grove that allows homeowners to receive necessary tree trimming for a very low cost. We selected 25 properties, where a maximum of 3 trees were trimmed/thinned to remove low hanging branches that were threats to the home and powerlines. By partnering with a local arborist, this program was a huge success in preparing homes for hurricane season, and even allowing some homeowners to be re-instated for their homeowner's insurance policies!

National Rebuilding Day 2023

April 29th, 2023 was National Rebuilding Day. On this day, Rebuilding Together affiliates across the nation provided repairs to homes in need with volunteers. Our organization helped repair 6 homes and 1 community space with over 150 volunteers in West Coconut Grove all on the same day!

Floor and Decor Volunteer Day

During March of 2023, Floor and Decor employees volunteered to revitalize a Veterans home and care facility in Allapattah. At this event landscaping was done to beautify the courtyard that all the residents can use. Thanks to the grant, other repairs were completed by contractors, including ADA bathroom conversions and new locking mechanisms on all of the units.

Miami Open Volunteer Day

In March 2023, during the Miami Open Tournament, 4 professional international tennis players volunteered to paint a home in Miami Gardens, along with the Women's Tennis Association. A Veteran and his family live in the home, and they are so happy with how the painting came out.
