Brownsville got spring-ready thanks to Rebuilding Together NYC (RTNYC), Brownsville Partnership, Brownsville Community Justice Center and local residents. Approximately 200 volunteers gathered on Saturday, April 28 for RTNYC’s Spring Rebuilding Day which provided free home repairs for local families and upgrades of community spaces at the Brownsville and Tilden Houses and Van Dyke Park.
“One of the most effective and efficient ways to preserve affordable housing is to provide critical home repairs and upgrades to those in need,” said RTNYC Executive Director Kimberly George. “Spring Rebuilding Day takes our work a step further — together with local residents. Partnering with the people who live and work in the community is the best way to make the neighborhoods they know and love better, strong and safer places to live.”
