Rebuilding Together Peninsula (RTP) provides safety and health-related repairs at no cost to income-qualified homeowners and nonprofit facilities throughout all of San Mateo County and Northern Santa Clara County including the cities of Palo Alto, Los Altos and Mountain View.

Because everyone deserves to live safely in their homes.

If you are a homeowner in need of home repairs, please see our program overview below. Note: homeowners in greater Santa Clara County should contact our sister affiliate, Rebuilding Together Silicon Valley.

If you are a non-profit community organization in need of facility rehabilitation, please see our Community Facility Repairs page.


RTP works with skilled technicians and volunteers to provide repairs that improve the health, safety, and independence of our community neighbors. We strive to serve all income-qualified homeowners who meet our eligibility requirements through either our Safe at Home or National Rebuilding Day programs.
