The 141 homes housed a total of 239 residents. We also distributed 12 Safe at Home kits in Southwestern Minnesota. In addition, we completed one Community Revitalization project, adding a garden and making other improvements at the Rondo Commemorative Plaza in Saint Paul and serving the many residents who live in that neighborhood. Projects utilized 350 volunteers contributing 3,874 hours of service to the community. We also officially expanded our services statewide for roof projects and a full offering of services in Cottonwood, Jackson, Nobles, and Pipestone Counties in Southwest Minnesota.
Our primary goal is to help preserve homeownership for low-income families with children, older adults, individuals living with disabilities and veterans. Our Home Repair and Safe at Home Programs provide critical home repairs and accessibility modifications at no cost to qualified homeowners, allowing them to live independently and safely, while preserving their greatest financial asset. Our Community Revitalization Program help to stabilize and revitalize neighborhoods in need and ensure that nonprofit organizations can better serve the most vulnerable residents of our community. In 2022, we plan to complete 139 Home Repair projects, 142 Safe at Home projects, and two Community Revitalization projects. We also plan to distribute 150 Safe at Home kits.

When qualified homeowners are not capable of making needed repairs, Rebuilding Together Minnesota will coordinate the volunteers, skilled labor, tools and supplies necessary to repair the homes. We also rehabilitate properties that house qualifying nonprofit organizations serving our community. We focus our efforts on older adults, individuals living with disabilities, active and retired members of the armed services, and families with children, tailoring services to meet the needs of each individual homeowner.
