RadioRotary interviews Poughkeepsie South Rotary president Christina Boryk, executive director of Rebuilding Together Dutchess County. Rebuilding Together is the nonprofit organization (once known as “Christmas in July”) that for the past 27 years has repaired, revitalized, and rehabilitated homes for homeowners who because of age or disability or poverty are unable to make the necessary repairs that would make the dwelling safe and healthy. The service is free to the homeowner. The volunteer workers install grab bars, ramps, and smoke and carbon-dioxide alarms, and make other modifications as well as undertake minor repairs. Larger-scale projects are handled by outside contractors. They have repaired more than 800 homes since the program started. The program is funded by state and local grants, by local corporations such as Central Hudson, and donations.
