Rebuilding Together Seattle
Rebuilding Together Seattle [RTS] is a local non-profit that brings volunteers together with their communities. They facilitate home repairs to revitalize neighborhoods and, ultimately, rebuild lives. Their collective vision is to provide safe homes and communities for everyone. Beyond this, their work improves the overall health of a community. Not only do they help stabilize housing and homeownership they also aid the growing need for affordable housing. Meanwhile, they help in preserving the culture and character of our neighborhoods, restoring dignity, and rebuilding social connections.
As an RTS sponsor, Collaborative was invited to their 10th annual Beer & Wine Tasting event at the Museum of History and Industry. This event recognized RTS partners and sponsors, as well as immersed guests into the incredible stories of the people that RTS has positively impacted over the years. All of the proceeds went to RTS’s home repair and community revitalization programs. These programs help keep low-income homeowners safe and healthy in their homes.
These amazing stories empower us to be active participants in our community and motivate us to support RTS’s mission. It was a great night and the perfect precursor for our participation in RTS’s #RebuildCentralDistrict event, that followed just a few weeks after. This event was part of RTS’s #BuildingaHealthyNeighborhood initiative, in which our Collaborative team partnered with RTS to complete home repairs over the course of two days for a family in Seattle’s Central District.
Thank you, Rebuilding Together Seattle, for another opportunity to help serve our community. We had a great time completing home improvements, connecting with the homeowners, and sharing plenty of smiles. We look forward to participating in the next project!
