LAS VEGAS, April 24, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Rebuilding Together Southern Nevada and hundreds of community volunteers will come together to provide critical repairs to 17 homes in support of National Rebuilding Day, held on Saturday, April 27, 2013.

Rebuilding Together Southern Nevada (RTSNV) will renovate and repair 17 properties of low-income elderly, disabled, multi-generational families and veterans in Las Vegas, North Las Vegas and Henderson, in just one day. Renovations will include exterior painting, property clean up, electrical repairs, plumbing repairs, home modifications and energy saving measures.  All renovations are free of charge to homeowners.

National Rebuilding Day is the annual event of Rebuilding Together that highlights its mission to bring volunteers and communities together to improve the homes and lives of low-income homeowners. "Every homeowner wants to live in a house that feels comfortable and safe," said Cynthia Baca, Executive Director of RTSNV. "Proudly, the work we do, along with our volunteers and community partners, allows individuals and families to remain in their homes."

This year, RTSNV is celebrating its 20th anniversary of rehabbing homes in southern Nevada and ensuring that low-income homeowners are given the opportunity to live safely and age with dignity in their own homes. Many of the residents have lived in their homes for decades and are unable to afford many of the home improvements needed.

On National Rebuilding Day, home renovation projects will take place throughout the valley, beginning at 8:30 a.m.-until all work is completed.
