Rebuilding Together Peninsula (RTP) Formerly Christmas In April, Builds Volunteer Partnerships To Rehabilitate Homes And Community Facilities For Low-Income Homeowners And Neighbors ? Seniors, Disabled, Or Families ? So They Can Live Independently In Warmth And Safety.RTP Organizes And Trains Volunteers To Repair Homes And Community Facilities Of Neighbors In Need. This Effort Culminates In ?National Rebuilding Day?, Held The Last Saturday In April, In Which Over 70 Homes And Community Facilities Receive Much Needed Maintenance Services. RTP Serves All Of San Mateo County And Northern Santa Clara County, An Area With A Total Population Of Over 1 Million. Our Efforts Are Strengthened By Partnerships And Collaborations With Government Agencies, Private Businesses, Skilled Craftspeople, Civic Organizations, Churches And Community Volunteers. Every Year, RTP Brings Thousands Of Volunteers And Corporate Sponsors Together To Preserve Affordable Housing And Rebuild Communities. It?S People Helping People, Neighbor Helping Neighbor, Enhancing Dignity And Pride For All Who Participate.Over 51,000 Low-Income Homeowners Live In The Peninsula Communities We Serve. In 2008, We Received 262 Applications But Could Only Accept 76 Projects. The Average Annual Income Of Our Recipients Under $26,000. The Need Is Clear. Many Neighbors Have Worked Hard All Their Lives And Have Been Physically And Financially Able To Repair Their Homes For Most Of That Time. Now Due To Illness, Aging, Inflation Or Job Loss, They Are Unable To Fund This Work On Their Own And Their Homes Have Deteriorated. Each Homeowner Has His Or Her Own Story, But One Theme Is Constant: Neighbors On Fixed Incomes Are Being Forced Out Of Their Homes Or Are Making Agonizing Decisions To Forgo Even Basic Home Maintenance. The Result Is Unsafe Conditions, A Loss Of The Homeowner?S Dignity And Crumbling Neighborhoods. Rebuilding Together Peninsula Eliminates These Hardships For Our Recipients. One Day Of Volunteer Effort Does Make A Difference In People?S Lives. Home Ownership Is An Investment In An Individual?S Future. RTP Provides Individuals With Opportunities To Invest In The Future Of Our Communities.
