    As foreclosures continue in the housing market, one Valley non-profit dedicates its time to rebuilding property values.  For 21 years, Rebuilding Together Valley of the Sun has been coordinating volunteers to upgrade homes for low-income homeowners, with a focus on the elderly, disabled and veterans.  The Tempe-based group, led by Executive Director Dennis Flynn, has remodeled more than 1,350 homes in the past two decades.  More recently, Flynn has also worked with banks to donate foreclosed homes. The non-profit brings in a team of volunteers and licensed contractors to update the home and then re-sell, putting the money back into the program.  So far, they've transformed six foreclosed homes.  Among the recipients was a disabled Vietnam veteran and his wife from Glendale. "It's the first home they've ever owned," Flynn said.  Rebuilding Together is just finishing another Glendale home, which should go onto the market this month for $60,000.  The home, a foreclosure donated by Wells Fargo, is at 5244 N. 71st Ave. between Glendale Avenue and Bethany Home Road.  Since mid-March, crews have fully renovated the home, which Flynn described as having been "a mess."  The only untouched piece is the tile floor in the living room.  "Someone is going to get a huge deal," Flynn said. "It's probably going to be the best house in the neighborhood."  To qualify for the revamped home, applicants must be first-time homeowners, meaning they haven't owned a home in at least three years, Flynn said.  While banks have faced criticism over their handling of the foreclosure crisis, such donations are happening at Rebuilding Together and other non-profits.  Habitat for Humanity Central Arizona in December said banks had helped them obtain 24 to 30 foreclosure homes in metro Phoenix since the recession began. The foreclosures came from such banks as Wells Fargo, National Bank of Arizona, Bank of America and JPMorgan Chase.  "We're trying to revitalize community and home ownership throughout the nation," said Jeff Gauvin, the community development officer of Wells Fargo. Rebuilding Together Valley of the Sun hosts 2 major renovation days in Phoenix, Az. One is the Rock N Roll Paintathon and the other being Rebuilding Day. We utilize corporate volunteers and donations to renovate and paint low income housing. In addition, we run a Sr. Fall Prevention Program. Our volunteers work in pairs and go out to install free safety equipment in low income homes where it would otherwise be unaffordable. Our name, Rebuilding Together, says it all.
