Modcon Living is a nonprofit organization established to help sustain homes and neighborhoods, and enrich the lives of homeowners in our community.

Through grants, we provide reliable, affordable home repair and modification services, while serving vulnerable senior homeowners in Central Ohio. We believe that everyone should have the choice to age in place with independence and dignity.

Originally established in 1991 and previously founded as an affiliate of Christmas in April, and also formerly known as RT Central Ohio (Rebuilding Together Central Ohio), the organization has grown and evolved over the years. Founded on the concept of barn raising, Modcon Living believes that we can accomplish great things quickly when we come together as a community.

In 2004, we began providing year-round emergency home repair and modification services.

In 2009, we assumed management of the community Tool Library lending program for Franklin County residents.

In 2016, we began offering various Tool Library Memberships to empower homeowners and support DIY home repairs and modifications. This hugely popular program continues to grow and assists homeowners and community partners in sustaining homes, properties and community gardens.
