Rebuilding Together Long Beach (RTLB) develops partnerships within the community to rebuild owner-occupied homes and non-profit facilities for low-income residents, particularly the elderly or those with disabilities, so they may live independently with dignity, in warmth and safety. All services are at no cost to the recipient(s).
Our parent organization, Rebuilding Together, is the nation’s leading nonprofit organization working to preserve affordable home ownership and revitalize communities. Rebuilding Together Long Beach is part of Rebuilding Together’s network of more than 200 affiliates that provide free rehabilitation and critical repairs to the homes of low-income, elderly and disabled Americans.

RTLB supports two national "Work Days" per year, typically the last Saturday in April and October, when it dispatches work teams to several projects throughout the community. Volunteers work side-by-side with professional contractors and trades-people, all of whom also generously donate their time and resources. Other community partners support these workdays by donating materials, meals, and equipment. Each and every one of these teammates is a valued gift, without whose contributions our community work would not be possible.
The impact to these homes and families is as immediate as it is amazing. Volunteers often return year after year, finding it impossible not to be moved and inspired by the positive results of their effort. RTLB's outreach has grown over the years to include in addition to the greater Long Beach area.
