GOOD TIME TO “REBUILD TOGETHER”


In 1973 a small group of neighbors and friends, who had seen houses in their community deteriorate, banded together to dedicate one day to elderly, disabled and low-income homeowners who needed help to maintain their homes. A movement was born, Rebuilding Together, and eventually blossomed into a national organization. Rebuilding Together – St. Louis joined the effort in 1992. More than fifty neighborhoods from around the St. Louis region have benefited from Rebuilding Together.


Rebuilding Together has provided free home repairs for many years in Ferguson. The next project is scheduled for May 5, 2018. Emerson will supply funds and volunteers, as they have in prior years.


This is a project that benefits all of Ferguson, including Ferguson CityWalk. Improvement of homes adjacent to CityWalk businesses can only improve business by setting a tone that is hospitable, and strengthening pride in the neighborhood.


Rebuilding Together is looking for 10-12 homeowners on one block that meet their low-income requirements and that need home repairs, so they can participate in the May 5 Rebuild Together project. Ideally, they would have applications in hand before the end of February, in order to complete their evaluation process by deadline. For an application follow this link: http://www.rebuildingtogether-stl.org/wwwroot/docs/New2014_Homeowner_Application.pdf . To get further details on the organization and contact information, go to http://www.rebuildingtogether-stl.org/discover#vision or contact Dave Ervin, at (314) 918–9918, or dervin@rebuildingtogether-stl.org .


CityWalk business owners have a standing invitation to attend the Ferguson CityWalk Advisory Board. The FSBD meets the 2rd Thursday of the month from 5:30-7:30 p.m. The meeting location for February has not yet been determined. To get this information, please contact Robin Shively at 314-495-7452 or cornersframing@gmail.com.
