Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

RTAAC looks to be the answer to looming catastrophic crisis on the horizon. With an aging population wishing to age in place, but unable to provide necessary home repairs, our communities are at risk. Providing Safe and Healthy Housing keeps homeowners in their own home, reduces the need for assisted living, and may reduce medical expenses (falls, asthma, infections, etc) from living in an unhealthy home.

Now working in Neighborhood Revitalization, our NRI looks to reduce the number of negative incidents in communities. By remedying the physical concerns (standing water, poor lighting, trash, unclean playgrounds, etc) the residents, especially children, can live in a safer environment. By working with the residents in a long-range program focused on social concerns, we look to

Working in consecutive years since 1991, we are able to leverage grants and donations by utilizing volunteers and in-kind donations. With a volunteer base of over 3000 skilled and unskilled workers, we are able to work quickly and efficiently.On average, we are able to turn $1 donor gift into $9.53 retail value renovations.

Our work in Neighborhood Revitalization is proving similar results, providing a community with nearly 10 times the amount of value for each dollar donated.

With a long-standing Board of DIrectors, and skilled volunteers, we are fully prepared to accomplish more house renovations and more neighborhood revitalization projects. Our programs are growing and accomplishing more. In 2017, RTAAC received the AAC Affordable Housing Coalition Non-Profit of the Year!

Rebuilding Together Anne Arundel County is an affiliate of the nation's largest non-profit of it's kind. We provide home renovations and modifications for qualifying families - without cost to the homeowner. Operating since 1991, we have provided over 600 major home renovations and put back over $12M in retail repair value into AAC.

We are now working in neighborhoods to partner with the residents to change the social and physical issues.

We work to provide Safe and Healthy Housing and Safe and Healthy Neighborhoods throughout Anne Arundel County.
