Rebuilding Together Philadelphia is a local, independent affiliate of Rebuilding Together, Inc., a national safe and healthy housing organization working to preserve affordable homeownership and revitalize neighborhoods. Since 1988, we have made essential repairs to nearly 1,200 homes in the Philadelphia region. All work is done free of charge to the homeowners.

Team RTP has participated in the Philadelphia International Dragon Boat Festival each fall since 2006. Our participation provides our volunteers and other supporters a chance to have some fun and introduce our organization to their friends and family and to the Greater Philadelphia community, and to fundraise for our cause. On festival day, we share space with several of our long-time house management teams that also happen to be our friendly rivals on the river.

A Dragon Boat team consists of 20 paddlers (in 10 pairs), a drummer at the front of the boat keeping everyone paddling together, and a steersperson at the back of the boat, keeping the boat on course. The key to success is teamwork and synchronicity. While there are many teams at the festival that compete internationally, Team RTP is not one of them. Our top priority is fun!
