On Saturday April 30th, over 500 volunteers participated in our annual Rebuilding Day event. This is a day of community service that takes place the last Saturday in April every year. These dedicated and hard-working volunteers worked on over 40 projects, including improvements to 30 homes. Their efforts are part of the revitalization of the Woodbourne-McCabe and Turner Station neighborhoods.Read more

Turner Station is the oldest African-American community in Baltimore County. This community is close-knit, and has a rich history.

In September, we worked with Erie Insurance and Medifast to provide safe and healthy housing repairs and improvements for Ms. Mary Madden and Mrs. Sedonia Byrd in the Woodbourne-McCabe neighborhood.
Our first project took place on September 10th and 11th in observance of the September 11th National Day of Service and remembrance. Volunteers from Erie Insurance, one of the largest property and casualty insurers in America, devoted their time during the two day event. Over 30 Erie employees came from all over Maryland to devote their time to give back to the community.

Later in September, Rebuilding Together Baltimore worked with Medifast to help work on safe and healthy housing repairs on the home of Ms. Mary Madden. Medifast’s community impact program encourages employees to volunteer with organizations and give back into the community. In addition to working on Ms. Madden’s home, volunteers also helped finish up some projects at Ms. Byrd’s home and beautified the park between their homes. 20 wonderful Medifast volunteers came out and made a huge impact!
This past Saturday, November 22nd, RTB partnered with Microsoft to work on Ms. H’s home in the Woodbourne-McCabe neighborhood of Baltimore City.
Ms. H is 73 years old. She has lived on the east side of Baltimore City her whole life and moved to the Woodbourne-McCabe neighborhood 17 years ago in 1997. She has owned her current residence for 14 years. Before she bought her house, she lived next to her sister. Ms. H’s 41 year old son currently lives with her and her sister still lives down the street. She has a daughter and 2 brothers as well. Ms. H loves living in Woodbourne-McCabe because it is a quiet and friendly neighborhood. She loves the fact that her neighborhood had a lot of children when she first moved there and now a lot of seniors live in the area since many families have raised their children there and stayed even after their children have moved out. Before Ms. H retired she was a security guard at the Housing Authority for Baltimore City for 25 years. Now that she is retired she loves to read and do puzzles
Seventeen awesome volunteers came out from Microsoft for the project They accomplished so much including installing flooring, energy efficiency improvements, installing handrails in stairways, weatherizing doorways, installing a new toilet, adding grab bars in the shower as well as a shower seat, and other major and minor household repairs and maintenance.
Thank you to everyone from Microsoft for making this day possible and to all the other volunteers that came out that day. We love our volunteers and Ms. H is very happy with the repairs done to her home.
