You probably have a neighbor or two in your neighborhood who is elderly, alone, and their home is in disarray. Many times, these folks are widowed or have no family, and therefore have no means to fix the home themselves. Enter Rebuilding Together Pittsburgh, a non-profit group who will evaluate the need of the person and then fix the home at no cost to the homeowner. They have been doing this in Allegheny County for 20 years, and are approaching their 2000th home repair.
