Safe at Home

Rebuilding Together Metro Denver’s Safe at Home Program  provides no-cost home health and safety repairs for low-income homeowners. Most of these repairs are fairly simple and inexpensive, but out of reach for our homeowners, with average incomes under $1,400 a month.  Safe at Home removes safety hazards and allows our neighbors to age-in-place and retain their largest asset, their home.

Safe at Home is a new delivery system, building upon 17 years of Rebuilding Together Metro Denver home repair programs. Safe at Home will prevent low-income homeowners from waiting  on a long list for their repair needs.

Safe at Home is a year-round program, staffed by a contracted handy person and volunteer repair crew.  Safe at Home augments our traditional Emergency Home Repair Program and Rebuilding Days, more than tripling our reach and impact.
