Rebuilding Together Peninsula

Looking for a way to give back to your community, to engage with other like-minded people and to help build teams and leadership skills among staff – not to mention develop your carpentry and building skills.  Working with the local affiliate of Rebuilding Together is a great way to do it all.

Rebuilding Together Peninsula is a non-profit that partners with companies, non-profits, volunteer organizations, architects and contractors to carry out their mission of repairing homes, revitalizing communities and rebuilding lives by providing safe homes and communities for everyone. 

Every year, on the last Saturday of April, is National Rebuilding Day (NRD), a day when teams come together to work on a project for RTP.  It requires the organizational skills of Volunteer Captains, construction skills of Construction Captains and the skills and hard wotk of many volunteers to complete a project for very appreciative reccipients.

Hayes Group Architects has been instrumental in supporting RTP on their major fundraiser, Dreams Happen, as well as participating in NRD.  Dreams Happen raises money through auctioning off children’s playhouses, designed by local architects and designers and built by local contractors, every other year.  We have designed an help to build the five playhouses shown here.

It is a great way to empower young staff to run the design process, seek out builders, source materials and assist in the construction of these unique playhouses.  The live auction evening of Dreams Happen is a night to remember for all.
