W HO W E A RE, CONT. Rebuilding Together Metro Denver (RTMD) is one of over 190 affiliates in the Rebuilding Together, Inc. network. Rebuilding Together has affiliates throughout the nation. Rebuilding Together is the nation’s largest volunteer- based nonprofit. The majority of the repairs performed are done by skilled and unskilled volunteers. RTMD hosts rebuild days throughout the year. Rebuilds are generally sponsored by businesses or organizations who supply volunteers for the projects.
