On what may be a rainy — or sunny — day in April, volunteers can participate on a parish team to provide critical repairs and renovations for low-income homeowners in the Portland area. The Rebuilding Together Portland program, which used to be known as Christmas in April, still stores supplies at the University of Portland and at least a couple of parishes — St. Clare in Southwest Portland and Resurrection in Tualatin — have been able to field teams through the name change.

The National Rebuilding Day is the last Saturday in April.

Right now, the organization is taking applications from people who might need a team of workers for painting, cleaning out an overgrown backyard, doing small carpentry or electrical repairs, or installing grab bars or smoke detectors.

Applicants need to own their home, live in the home and be unable to do the work themselves. They also need to live in Portland.

The group is currently focusing primarily on outdoor safety and health repairs, mindful of keeping both the homeowners and the volunteer teams safe.

To fill out a homeowner application, go to rtpdx.org/homeowner-assistance.
