Overwhelmed with home repairs? You've come to the right place.
Rebuilding Together is working to ensure safe homes and communities for everyone.
You meet our basic qualifications if you...
- Live in the home you own that is located anywhere in the five-county Metro Denver area,
- Counties served are Adams, Arapahoe, Denver, Douglas, and Jefferson
- Are up to date on the mortgage and property taxes at your home,
- Your household qualifies as low-income (see table below), and
- Someone in your home is elderly, a person with a disability, or a child under the age of 18.
How do Rebuilding Together Metro Denver's Programs Work?
Once we receive your complete application, our staff will schedule an assessment of repairs needed at your home. Following the assessment, applications selected for repair services will be accepted into one of our core programs:
|Safe @ Home
|Emergency Home Repair
Consideration is given first to households that have not yet received any services from our organization, as well as seniors, persons with disabilities, and families with children who are unable to make their own repairs and who have no able-bodied family members to assist them.
To determine if you are income eligible, add up all the income sources for every adult living in your home before taxes, health insurance, garnishments, or other deductions are taken out. Compare that amount to the table below for your household size. Your income is eligible if your total gross household income is below the amount for your household size.
(adults and children)
What does gross household income mean?
- Total income (from all adults ages 18 and over living in your house, including any renters) before taxes and deductions, like health insurance premiums, are taken out.
- Every source of income including salaries, pensions/annuities, income/dividends, SSI/SSDI, and rent payments, even if the income source is non-taxable (VA Pension).
- Adults receiving no income will need to complete a Declaration of Zero Income. If this applies to anyone in your home, please download the Delcaration of Zero Income form to include with your application.

Rebuilding Together Metro Denver does not do structural repairs such as foundations, framing, new construction, or room additions. We also may not be able to work on projects that include repairing work that was done without proper permits.
