Rebuilding Together has received a four-star charity rating from Charity Navigator in recognition of its efforts at preserving affordable home ownership through its network of interior designers and architects.
This was the sixth consecutive year that Rebuilding Together received the honor from Charity Navigator, the nation's largest charity evaluator.
Rebuilding Together taps into its base of skilled trades people as well as the support of local businesses and major corporate partners. They combine with volunteer designers and architects to revitalize homes and communities by performing essential home renovations for low-income families, the elderly, people with disabilities and military veterans.
Gary Officer, president and CEO of Rebuilding Together, says that for every dollar raised, approximately 89 percent is spent on direct program expenses. He estimates that they complete 10,000 projects each year.
Its work was recognized by Charity Navigator as being conducted in a fiscally exceptional manner, outperforming most other charities in America, said Ken Berger, president and CEO of Charity Navigator. Only 3 percent of the charities they rate have received at least six consecutive four-star evaluations, he added.
