rebuilding together North Jersey

At Rebuilding Together North Jersey, we believe that a safe, warm, dry, and healthy home is a quality of life that everyone deserves. But we know that not everyone can afford to properly maintain their home – particularly fixed-income Seniors, Veterans, people with disabilities, and low-income families.

Originally founded in 1998 by the Junior League of Bergen County as Rebuilding Together Bergen County, we are dedicated to providing low-income homeowners with critical repairs and modifications needed to live safely in their homes.

In 2016, we expanded to serve high-needs communities in northern New Jersey, beginning with Paterson and Passaic County.  We are proud to embrace our new name as Rebuilding Together North Jersey (RTNJ).

Our Vision

Safe homes and communities for everyone

Our Mission

Repairing homes, revitalizing communities, rebuilding lives

Our Communities

Rebuilding Together North Jersey helps the communities of Bergen County and Passaic County, New Jersey

Our Approach

Applications are provided to all who reach out to us from Bergen and Passaic Counties and then reviewed to make sure they are eligible before starting the evaluation and rebuilding process.  We also work with healthcare, social service, and community organizations to identify individuals and families, who can benefit from our help.  Once we identify our project families, we work to provide quality, sustainable improvements that will enable them to live independently and with dignity.

Through the generosity of skilled trades professionals, community organizations, and hundreds of general volunteers, who donate their time and talents, RTNJ is able to help our low-income neighbors in need at no cost to the homeowners.
