Rebuilding Together Oakland County
Before our non-profit organization was established in Oakland County, Rebuilding Together was making a name for itself in communities and neighborhoods across the nation
- The organization was started in 1988 as "Christmas in April", with 13 loosely organized community service programs.
- The National Headquarters started in a basement in Washington D.C., today the network has improved more than 120,000 homes across the nation!
- With the help of 2.5 million community volunteers, Rebuilding Together has delivered over $1 billion in market value since we began.
- Rebuilding Together Oakland County (RTOC) was founded in 1992, and joins over 200 other affiliates across the nation striving for community improvement.
