Rebuilding Together Seattle restored three Shoreline homes for disabled residents

Sunday, May 5, 2013

On Saturday, April 27, 2013, over 1,000 volunteers from Rebuilding Together Seattle restored 26 homes in the greater Seattle area, including 3 homes in Shoreline, at no cost to the individuals served.

With a vision of a safe and healthy home for every person, Rebuilding Together Seattle provides low income homeowners and nonprofit facilities with free critical repairs, modifications, and energy-efficient upgrades.

The three homes are group homes, owned by Parkview Services, which house adults with developmental disabilities.

The Center for Spiritual Living sites both completed full interior painting, built a new fence, trimmed back shrubbery, replaced broken windows and repaired plumbing.
