Rebuilding Together


“We rise by lifting others. Giving back builds hope —
and when there is hope there is always a future.”

-Norman Mugisha, a Scholar studying at EARTH University in Costa Rica.

CSI Chicago is committed to building that better future by partnering with Rebuilding Together Metro Chicago to provide a family in need with a home that is safe, warm and dry.  The past two years, we will adopted a home and will rehab it on National Rebuilding Day in April.  Although we adopt a house, our real commitment is to improve the lives of the family that lives there by taking away the stresses that their home brings to their lives. In order for us to meet our commitment we have establish the following goals.  We look forward to a third year of giving back through Rebuilding Together Metro Chicago in 2020.

Due to COVID-19, the April 25, 2020 Rebuilding Day in Chicago has been postponed until further notice.  To ensure the health of all parties involved in this event, Rebuilding Together Metro Chicago has made the difficult decision to reschedule National Rebuilding Day and hopes to hopes to reschedule later in 2020.  (Read statement from Rebuilding Together Metro Chicago.)  We will be sure to update this webpage with new information as it becomes available.

Be a part of it in 2020. Help make a difference.

Join us in helping provide a family with their much needed home improvements to live a life of safety and happiness.

Our 2020 homeowner is
a quiet, sweet 72-year-old woman who has lived in her home 19 years. Her home constantly smells of baking as she makes cakes for family and friends, decorating them with favorite colors and characters. She loves to see the joy that her cakes can bring to those around her.

This year's sponsored home is classified as a "medium" home and repairs include safety and ease of use upgrades in the bathroom, replacing stair railing inside and outside, painting, landscaping, updating electrical outlets, and general cleaning.

As we learn more about the material donations and volunteers for the Rebuild Day we will be sure to let you know.  Right now, you can best support this effort by providing financial support through a donation to the CSI Chicago Foundation.
