On behalf of the Home Builders Charitable Foundation (HBCF), 2016 HBA President Kim Hibbs of Hibbs Homes (left) presented a $14,000 donation to Jaqueline Hamilton, chief development officer for Beyond Housing.
The donation will be used to complete repairs in several of Beyond Housing’s rental properties to bring the homes up to quality living standards. Most homes are in need of full paint jobs, light fixtures, new blinds, floor tiles, exterior tuck-pointing, porch rebuilds and an overall general modernization. The homes in their portfolio are generally two- and three-bedroom homes that can house up to six people. Beyond Housing’s mission is to help entire communities become better places to live by providing affordable housing. It is a community development organization that works in defined geographies like the Normandy School District in order to focus its resources where they can have the greatest impact.
The HBA is a local trade association of more than 500 member firms representing the residential construction industry. The Home Builders Charitable Foundation, the HBA’s charitable arm, is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing housing assistance to people or organizations with special shelter needs.
