A Strategic Plan on Four Service Areas
Rebuild Day, 4th weekend in April annually: individual sites worked at by teams from religious/civic/municipal or business groups. Work scheduled at sites only as funding permits each year. Increased visibility in Litchfield County will provide an increase # of low-income, elderly homeowner referrals, and volunteer teams. Emphasis will be placed on community recognition.
There is the potential for creating smaller geographic zones with Board Members from each zone, or a group of zone advisors that would control travel distances for site assessments, etc.
Homeowner (Maintenance) Training using Rebuilding Together (R T) manuals, volunteer and paid instructors. Trainings are in cooperation with local Community Groups, Senior Centers, Western Connecticut AAA and other organizations creating partnerships.
