Safe at Home

The Safe at Home program operates on the premise that everyone deserves to live in a house that ensures their health and welfare. Safe at Home  is our year-round program to make homes safe, healthy and energy efficient. We install devices and make modifications in the home to prevent falls, improve accessibility and increase safety in the home.  Large scale home improvements include roof repair or replacement, window and door replacement, patching and repairing walls and of course, exterior painting. See our 25 Health and Safety Priorities for more details. When needed, we remodel bathrooms and install wheelchair ramps, subject to adequate funding.

Veteran Home Repair Program

The RTO Veteran Home Repair Program is designed to address the home repair needs of low-income veterans struggling to address home repair. The Veteran Home Repair program is a collaborative initiative of like-minded organizations focused on honoring the service of Central Florida’s veterans. The families of fallen service are also given consideration. RTO’s Veteran Home Repair Program identifies hazards in the homes of local Veteran homeowners to increase their safety and health in the homes they know and love in the communities where they’ve lived for years.

Disaster Recovery Program

The RTO Disaster Recovery program is aligned with the Orange County Long Term Recovery Group (OCLTRG) initiative. This program works with homeowners identified by the Endeavors Case Management as in need of home repair services. To qualify, the home damage must have been sustained during 2017 Hurricane Irma and the homeowner must register with Endeavors Case Management. Only referrals from Endeavors will be given consideration for this program. Endeavors can be contacted by phone at 407-898-3777.

SCLT Program

The Skilled Construction Labor Training Program (SCLT) is being developed by Rebuilding Together Orlando to provide hands-on, employment driven training and certification for adults 18-24 years of age. SCLT operates Mon-Fri 9AM-5PM and is open to the general public. The 12 week hands-on course leads to credentials in OSHA 30, PACT Carpentry, and First Aid/CPR. Successful program graduates will be offered job placement assistance in residential construction. Initial enrollment will be announced in July 2018.
