What It’s All About
Adopting a home for Rebuilding Day is a truly rewarding experience. Volunteer teams who adopt homes have the opportunity to be a part of a national service event and also make a positive impact in the life of a homeowner in the Baltimore community. Volunteers work alongside one another to complete repairs that can greatly improve the quality of life for the homeowners we serve.
Teams are asked to provide 10 to 20 volunteers to perform repairs in their adopted house and a $5,000 sponsorship (this may be waived under special circumstances). Each team must designate a House Captain who will lead and plan the home repairs for Rebuilding Day. House Captains have a great deal of responsibility including selecting the home to work on, completing a Scope of Work, ordering materials, organizing the volunteer team, and leading the group on Rebuilding Day. Don’t worry though! Our staff is here to support you each step of the way to ensure that your team AND the homeowner have a positive experience.
Teams are also encouraged to appoint the following positions to assist the house captain:
- Skill Captain: Should have home repair knowledge and/or construction skills. Helps develop the work plan and instruct other team members in completing tasks.
- Safety Monitor: Ensures all volunteers work safely on the project site.
- Energy Captain: Coordinates Energy Efficiency-related repairs.
