ReBuilding Center


The ReBuilding Center makes a material difference by building equitable, vibrant and sustainable communities through reuse. We work to ensure that people and building materials—specifically those perceived as liabilities and cast off by society—are respected as community assets.

Bottom Line for Portland

In 2017, the ReBuilding Center diverted 3.5 million pounds of building materials from landfills and sold 420,000 salvaged items to the community. The center donated essential building materials to 235 local grassroots projects, including tiny homes for the houseless at Kenton Women’s Village, Dignity Village and Right 2 Dream Too.

“The ReBuilding Center doesn’t just inspire people to invest in each other and our community. It provides concrete tools to radically rethink the way we view what is conventionally considered trash and utilize it to make the world a better place.”
