General info

Rebuilding Together Kent County brings neighbors together to improve homes and lives. We leverage gifts of time, money and skill with volunteer and contract labor to repair and rehabilitate homes for vulnerable seniors, those living with disabilities, and families with limited resources in Kent County. All work is done at no cost to the homeowner. Whatever your skills and experience may be, there is a way you can help work toward a safe and healthy home for every person in Kent County.

We are one of over 150 local affiliates of Rebuilding Together, the nation’s largest volunteer home repair and rehabilitation organization. We are federally registered as an independent 501[c][3] non-profit and by the State of Maryland as a tax-exempt charitable organization.

We bring neighbors together to repair homes and revitalize communities, preserving homeownership, strengthening families and helping sustain the historical richness and intergenerational legacies that make Kent County a special place to live.

We have completed hundreds of repairs over our nearly 20 years of service, including: reconstructing front and back steps;repairing plumbing, floors and electrical wiring;installing windows and doors;making accessibility improvements, including widening doorways;constructing wheelchair ramps;replacing roofs;and reconstructing bathrooms. Yet there is plenty more work to do! Our Program Services Committee consistently has 12 or more referrals in various stages of assessment.

Community partners for our projects have included Shore United Bank, Chestertown Rotary Club, Kent Youth, Washington College, Galena United Methodist Youth Group, Presbyterian Church of Chestertown (which also provides us with our office space), BB&T Bank of Millington, Peoples Bank, Chester River Friends Meeting, United Way of Kent County, and the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of the Chester River.

Financial and material support for our affiliate comes from individuals, community organizations, and area businesses, including Chestertown Lumber, Rock Hall Lumber, Lowe's and The Dixon Group, and grants from the Constance and Carl Ferris Memorial Foundation, Maryland Affordable Housing Trust, Mid-Shore Community Foundation, and the United States Department of Agriculture.

We believe every person should have a safe, warm and dry home.
