Working with Montgomery County’s most vulnerable homeowners (seniors, veterans, people with disabilities, and families with young children), RTMC annually provides more than 110 low-income households with critical repairs, energy efficiency upgrades, and accessibility modifications – at no cost. Staff and volunteers unite to make homes safe and secure, performing everything from small tasks like installing bathroom handrails to large-scale weatherization projects and system replacements. Because many issues can be avoided with periodic maintenance, RTMC also empowers its clients with information about how to perform minor repairs with their own hands. A Homeowner Resource Packet connects residents to other nonprofits and agencies that provide support – utility bill assistance, tax credits, and emergency food. Your support does more than repair a roof – it keeps them in their homes, safe and sound.
COVID-19 Update: RTMC depends on volunteers but has had to scale back the number who work at once. Effectively completing needed repairs for neighbors will have to be accomplished under strict social-distancing and other safety guidelines. Outside repairs on homes began in the summer and most work will continue to be focused outside – until indoor work can be managed safely.
