Task Highlights: GBRAR members donated more than $37,000.00 during 2020. The GBRAR partnered with the Baton Rouge Area Foundation, which provides guidance and necessary documentation on organizations providing services to the community through housing and economic development. Rebuilding Together Baton Rouge, Mid-City Redevelopment Alliance, Life of a Single Mom, Capital Area Alliance for the Homeless, Habitat for Humanity of Greater Baton Rouge, and Volunteers of America are the organizations who received funding from GBRAR. Many members also volunteered to work several days a year on Rebuilding Together Baton Rouge projects that provide home repair services to allow elderly or disabled low-income homeowners to stay in their homes longer. They focus on helping those most vulnerable to the rising cost of living and falling social service budgets. RTBR believes in revitalizing communities and preserving affordable homes by providing free home repairs, improvements, and senior living modifications. They aim to make homes safer, more accessible, and more energy efficient.
