Get Involved with the Healthy Housing Challenge
Donations directed to the Healthy Housing Challenge support efforts by both the NCHH and Rebuilding Together to make high risk homes healthy and safe. Funds raised will provide tools, training, and technical assistance to launch the Challenge, which will enable Rebuilding Together affiliates to enhance the health and safety of 1,500 low-income households over the next three years.
