Rebuilding Together Peninsula was founded in 1989 under the leadership of the Junior League of Palo Alto • Mid Peninsula and a community-based advisory board. The first National Rebuilding Day was completed in April 1990 when 500 volunteers renovated 18 homes and community facilities.
RTP's mission is to build volunteer partnerships to rehabilitate homes and community facilities for low-income homeowners and neighbors — seniors, disabled, or families — so they can live independently in warmth and safety.
Of the over one million residents that RTP serves in San Mateo and northern Santa Clara counties, over 94,000 are low-income homeowners with an average annual income of $12,000. RTP is neighbor helping neighbor – people helping people – one community at a time.
