Since 1994, Rebuilding Together Mountain Communities has refurbished over 100 structures from Cedarpines Park to Green Valley Lake.

Each home is assigned a House Captain and a Volunteer Coordinator. These individuals oversee the crew of skilled craftsmen and volunteers who perform the needed repairs on the home. The Volunteer Coordinator also works to establish rapport with the homes’ and facilities’ owners.
