Home Repair Assistance Program

Since 2004, WUMC has worked with Rebuilding Together St. Louis to target homes in the Forest Park Southeast neighborhood. Rebuilding Together, is a national organization that revitalizes neighborhoods in partnership with the community by rehabilitating the houses of low-income, elderly, and disabled homeowners, so that they may continue to live independently in comfort and safety.

In addition to assistance with the funding of the initiative, each year WUMC leads in recruiting new FPSE homeowners and educating them about the application process. Annually, WUMC and Rebuilding Together target between 10-15 homes in FPSE. In the fall and winter volunteers and contractors review applications and assess the home repairs that are needed on each home. Then on a Saturday in April, hundreds of volunteers work on a one day home repair blitz. Work typically includes plumbing, electrical, interior and exterior painting, landscaping, tuck pointing, and guttering and roof repair.
