While we're making homes in Bergen County safer and healthier, you can pledge to support safe and healthy homes. Take the #RebuildingMonth pledge at togetherwetransform.org/pledge.
Want to help locally? Use our Volunteer Registration Form if you'd like to work with us on National Rebuilding Day, Saturday, April 30, or either of our prep workdays, Saturday, April 16 or 23. Be as specific as possible about your skills and experience. Or support our work with a secure online donation.

Home fires can spread rapidly, leaving occupants as little as two minutes to escape once an alarm sounds. Homeowners: If you are 60 or older, own your home, and meet low-income levels*, we can install smoke- and carbon monoxide alarms at no cost! Call 201-447-8886 or complete our Fire Safety Application. (*less than $46,100/yr for one-person household, $52,650 for two-person.)
Homeowners or renters who do not meet the above guidelines may still qualify to have 10-year lithium-battery smoke alarms installed in their home or apartment. Call 201-447-8886.
Smoke alarm installations will resume in April; smoke- and CO-detector installations will resume in summer.
