Mission

Rebuilding Together Peninsula's (RTP) brings volunteers and communities together to improve the homes and lives of our low-income neighbors. We are a safe and healthy housing organization that believes community starts at home. Our focus provides critical repairs, accessibility modifications and energy-efficient upgrades to low-income homes and community centers at no cost to service recipients. Our impact extends beyond the individuals served to revitalize and stabilize vulnerable neighborhoods and communities through our three core programs: National Rebuilding Day, Safe at Home and Team Build. From Daly City to Sunnyvale, approximately 1,700 homeowners and 400 community centers have witnessed the place they call home transform before their very eyes with the help of 60,000 volunteers.

Notes from the Nonprofit

Rebuilding Together Peninsula's highest priority is to improve the quality of low-income communities. Programs such as National Rebuilding Day and Safe at Home allow residents to remain in the communities in which they grew up, preserve ownership of their homes, avoid residence in institutions without family, and live affordably. With a new standard in place, Rebuilding Together Peninsula will meet the challenge to change more lives, offer the highest level of support, and provide the deepest level of investment to build for a better tomorrow.

Organizational Demographics

In order to support nonprofits and gain valuable insight for the sector, GuideStar worked with D5—a five-year initiative to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion in philanthropy—in creating a questionnaire. This section is a voluntary questionnaire that empowers organizations to share information on the demographics of who works in and leads organizations. To protect the identity of individuals, we do not display sexual orientation or disability information for organizations with fewer than 15 staff. Any values displayed in this section are percentages of the total number of individuals in each category (e.g. 20% of all Board members for X organization are female).
