Local charity restores the homes of 25 families on 25th anniversary - two in Shoreline

Sunday, April 26, 2015

On Saturday, April 25, Rebuilding Together Seattle celebrated its 25th year of program services to the greater Seattle community. Roughly 1,000 volunteers restored 25 homes in one day as part of Rebuilding Together Seattle’s 25th Annual Spring Rebuilding Day event.

With a vision of a safe and healthy home for every person, Rebuilding Together Seattle provides low income homeowners and nonprofit facilities with critical repairs at no cost to the individuals served.

Spring Rebuilding Day, also known as National Rebuilding Day, is part of Rebuilding Together’s national effort to preserve affordable housing and revitalize neighborhoods through renovation services.

In Shoreline, sponsor group Center for Spiritual Living restored the home of Ragnhild Cortez, a senior citizen who lives alone. Volunteers installed handrails on front porch steps, replaced flooring, added trim to door frames, and installed grab bars.
Also in Shoreline, sponsor groups Venture Construction and Goodman Real Estate restored a group home run by Parkview Services, a nonprofit that provides housing for adults with developmental and physical disabilities. Volunteers replaced a sink, patched holes, installed railings, and more.

More than 50 local organizations and companies are participating through event sponsorships, in-kind donations, and volunteer support, including other top event sponsors: Wells Fargo, Greenpoint Technologies, Booz Allen Hamilton, Perkins Coie, Sears, and Stratos Product Development.

Rebuilding Together Seattle, 206-682-1231, is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization with a mission to bring volunteers and communities together to help low income homeowners live in warmth, safety and independence.

Is it merely a coincidence that the Meridian improvement ends exactly where the 185th St. Light Rail Station Area rezone begins? I guess residents along that Phase 3 stretch from 190th southward can kiss any repaving good-bye for quite awhile.
