Make a Difference
Rebuilding Together Portage provides assistance to people who own their own home but who, because of physical limitation or income, are not able to cover the costs of home repair. Typically these individuals have a disability and/or are elderly, but low-income families and non-profit facilities such as schools, shelters and daycare centers are also included.
Every year, volunteers from the community come together to help individuals and families on our work day. The entire operation depends on volunteers like you. It takes a team of skilled and unskilled laborers willing to help others in our community.
