We are the Peoria affiliate of Rebuilding Together, Inc. We are an independent 501(c)3 organization originated in 1993 as Christmas in April (CIA) Peoria. As CIA programs were established across the nation, many affiliates grew and expanded their services, completing projects not only in April, but throughout the year. In recognition of that fact, a new name was chosen by the organization in 2000 — Rebuilding Together, Inc.
Rebuilding Together strengthens lives in our most vulnerable communities by providing low-income homeowners with free critical home repairs, accessibility modifications and energy-efficient upgrades. Over 165 Rebuilding Together local affiliates and nearly 100,000 volunteers comprise the nation’s largest volunteer home rehabilitation not-for-profit organization, completing about 10,000 rebuild projects each year. As we rebuild homes, community spaces and nonprofit facilities, our lasting impact helps to stabilize and revitalize neighborhoods across the country. We believe that everyone deserves to live in a safe and healthy home.
