This fall and winter, 33 Kensington homes will each receive up to $15,000 in home repairs through a new partnership between Rebuilding Together Philadelphia and the New Kensington Community Development Corporation. The initiative will kick off with a volunteer Block Build, in which volunteers will rip out old carpets and install new flooring, make electrical and plumbing repairs, install grab bars and handrails, and paint. Repairs will be directed by a house captain and skilled leader at each site. Volunteers are needed and can sign up online.
