Christmas In Action is a non-profit organization that rehabilitates the houses of low-income, elderly, disabled, and otherwise disadvantaged homeowners, to provide for their continued safety and independence. Christmas In Action home repair projects focus on providing immediate improvement to the safety and security of the homeowner. We look to safeguard the homeowner from critical internal and external hazards. This can include fixing electrical wiring, repairing leaky roofs, constructing wheelchair ramps, and transforming bathrooms into handicap accessible facilities.
The organization was founded due to the great need throughout Spartanburg County for home rehabilitations. The most recent Census data approximates that 3,500 Spartanburg County homeowners are both impoverished and elderly (over 65). The quality of housing for many of these individuals is sub-standard. Christmas In Action's goal is to continue serving this often forgotten population, working as a force for the prevention and elimination of sub-standard housing in the Upstate.

The primary vehicles for completing our mission in Spartanburg County are the twice-a-year community work days known as ReBuild days. But these ReBuild days are not the only times CIA helps the citizens of Spartanburg County. Throughout the year, applications are received and projects are completed on an as needed basis and at volunteers’ requests. CIA is committed to assisting eligible homeowners within Spartanburg County who are in need of home repairs
