Fiscal  Year  2013 Program  Highlights

Rebuilding Community:  Home  Repairs

178    homes  were  renovated  in  2013.  Many  eligible  homeowners  received  services  in  more  than  one  of   our  programs.  

1007  individual  repairs  were  completed  for  homeowners.  On  average,  RTGM  completed  5.7   individual  repairs  at  each  home.  

330  homeowners  benefited  from  our  services.  RTGM  served  148    unique  addresses.   384  accessibility  modifications  were  made  to  allow  homeowners  to  remain  in  their  homes  safely  and   independently.  

 Emergency  Repairs

71  emergency  repairs  were  completed  this  past  year.  RTGM  is  the  only  agency  in  the  county  to  complete  free   emergency  repairs  for  qualified  homeowners.  We  are  able  to  complete  most  repairs  in  24-48  hours.

28  of  these  emergency  repairs  were  the  installation  of  water  heaters.  RTGM  is  the  only  agency  in  Milwaukee   to  replace  non-functioning  water  heaters  free  of  charge.

 Community  Outreach

206  RTGM  home  visits  were  fulfilled  in  2013.  Each  home  is  assessed  by  both  our  program  manager  and  our   construction  manager.  Our  recommendations  are  then  discussed  with  the  homeowner.

554  applications  are  sent  out  on  a  yearly  basis.  RTGM  staff  attended  over  34  outreach  events  to  promote   our  services  and  ensure  homeowners  are  aware  of  the  services  available  to  them  through  RTGM  and  partnering   programs.  

3120  calls  were  processed  by  RTGM  staff.  We  work  with  over  30  additional  community  agencies  to   ensure  homeowners  have  access  to  comprehensive  programs.  280  referrals  were  made  to  community   partners  on  behalf  of  our  homeowners.
