Rebuilding Together Orlando

‘Twas the Night Before Christmas’

 The children were nestled all snug in their beds,

While visions of sugar-plums danced in their heads.

For some children living in Central Florida it won’t be possible to be “nestled all snug in their beds” simply because they don’t have beds to sleep in.

Imagine losing the ability to maintain your own home. The home should be a refuge- a place to weather the storms of life, celebrate with friends and family and age gracefully.

The “A Door to a Good Night’s Sleep” online auction that just ened, just in time for Rebuilding Together Orlando to deliver beds to deserving low-income families. For some of these children it will be their first bed.

Please go to www.charityauctionstoday.com/store/RTO to see the beds we’ve built and local artists painted.

Here is a story of “A Door to a Good Night’s Sleep” in The West Orlando News: http://westorlandonews.com/2012/12/14/local-groups-raise-money-for-beds-for-needy-central-florida-kids/.

Beds will be gifted to the kids this week!

“Stabilizing neighborhoods and improving living conditions.”

Unfortunately, for thousands in Central Florida, their home has become a place of stress and burden. Leaky roofs, lack of heat and general decay compounded by financial and physical difficulties contributes to home injuries, high energy bills, lack of mobility and deterioration. The community as a whole is experiencing a rapid decline in the condition and affordability of our aging housing supply. The loss of a home is costly to the individual, community and health care system.

Rebuilding Together understands the importance of a safe and healthy home.
