Greater Milwaukee

Rebuilding Day May  16th,  2015

What  is  Rebuilding  Together  Greater  Milwaukee? Our  Organization: Great  neighborhoods  are  restored  and  preserved  one  home  and  one   deserving  homeowner  at  a  time.  This  is  accomplished  through  the   efforts  of  visionary  community  leaders,  caring  and  generous   companies,  and  dedicated  volunteers  and  nonprofit  organizations  like   Rebuilding  Together  Greater  Milwaukee. Rebuilding  Together  Greater  Milwaukee  (RTGM)  supports  muchneeded  affordable  housing  and  helps  homeowners  and  neighborhoods   regain  a  sense  of  community  pride.  We  do  this  by  coordinating  the   volunteers,  skilled  labor,  tools  and  supplies  it  takes  to  renovate,   revitalize  and  renew  homes  and  neighborhoods  across  the  Greater   Milwaukee  area. We  address  the  problems  of  affordable  housing  for  low-income   homeowners  by  revitalizing  and  preserving  their  homes.  Through  the   repairs  provided  by  our  volunteers,  we: Repair  low-income,  owner-occupied  housing,  enabling  older   adults,  individuals  living  with  disabilities,  and  veterans  to  remain  in   their  homes  for  years  to  come. Address  critical  safety  issues  –  falls  are  a  leading  cause  of  injury   among  older  adults. Stabilize  living  conditions,  allowing  our  homeowners  accessibility   and  independence.     Lower  household  energy  bills  by  weatherizing  homes  and   replacing  old  appliances  with  newer,  energy  efficient  models.

Our  Mission:   Rebuilding  Together  Greater  Milwaukee  preserves  affordable  housing   and  revitalizes  vulnerable  neighborhoods  throughout  the  Milwaukee   and  Waukesha  counties.  We  improve  lives  by  providing  FREE,   professional  home  restoration,  vital  safety  repairs  and  life-changing   accessibility  modifications  for  low-income  homeowners  who  are  senior   citizens,  veterans  and/or  persons  with  disabilities.  Our  impact  is   extended  beyond  the  individuals  served  to  revitalize  and  stabilize   vulnerable  neighborhoods.  Home  by  home,  block  by  block,  entire   communities  are  transformed.    

“Thank  you  so  much  for  the  work  you  do    to   help  families  in  the  community.  We  were   one  of  them  and  we  are  forever  grateful  for   the  help  to  fix  much  needed  repairs  to  our   house  that  we  could  never  ever  had  the   means  to  get  done  without  your   assistance.” -  Joel  &  Karen,  Homeowners

“The  work  that  was  accomplished  in  one   day  was  fantastic.” -  Dolly  &  Kim,  Homeowners  

Each  tax-deductible  donation  allows  RTGM  to  purchase  basic  supplies  to  complete  our  homeowner’s  projects.  Whether  a   project  is  an  emergency  repair,  accessibility  modification,  Rebuilding  Day  or  one  of  our  many  projects  all  year  round,   sponsors  are  able  to  experience  a  full  range  of  involvement.   On  behalf  of  the  clients  we  serve  and  those  waiting  to  be  served;  thank  you  for  your  investment  consideration.

What  is  Rebuilding  Day? Sponsorship  Opportunity On  the  third  Saturday  of  May,  Rebuilding  Day  unites  a  diverse  group  of  volunteers  from  all  walks  of  life  to  rehabilitate   homes  and  revitalize  Milwaukee  communities. Every  project  we  undertake  is  unique.  Each  work  site  comes  with  a  different  history,  unique  homeowner  needs,  and  its   own  scope  of  work.  Once  deployed,  we  do  everything  from  yard  cleanup  and  painting,  to  skilled  plumbing,  windows,   electrical  systems  and  flooring  repairs.   As  we  work  to  revitalize  Milwaukee  communities,  we  also  work  hard  to  provide  a  positive  volunteer  experience  for  our   sponsors,  volunteers,  and  community  partners.  The  result  of  year-long  planning,  evaluating,  training,  and  organizing  is  a   lasting  impact  and  life-changing  experience  for  our  volunteers  and  the  homeowners  that  we  help.

Sponsorship  Commitment Sponsors  provide  financial  support,  along  with  a  volunteer  team,  that  includes  a  construction  leader,  called  a  House   Captain,  and  a  team  manager,  called  a  House  Leader.  Sponsors  have  the  option  of  providing  their  own  House  Captain   should  they  have  an  interested,  skilled  volunteer  or  we  provide  a  project  leader  if  needed.  Rebuilding  Together  Greater   Milwaukee  is  committed  to  providing  a  meaningful,  well-organized  experience  and  will  identify  your  project  and  train   and  support  your  volunteers  throughout  the  entire  process.  Rebuilding  Together  Greater  Milwaukee  provides  a  thank   you  event  for  all  volunteers  at  a  later  date.  Sponsorship  levels  are  designed  to  meet  the  needs  of  every  sponsor  and   team.  RTGM  strives  to  make  Rebuilding  Day  as  impactful  for  teams  as  it  is  for  our  deserving  homeowners.
