On behalf of the Home Builders Charitable Foundation (HBCF), 2019 HBA President John Suelthaus of Kingbridge Homes (left) presented a $15,000 donation to Jim Timmerberg, development officer for DOORWAYS.
The donation will be used to build an emergency exit ramp at DOORWAYS’ Cooper House residence. Cooper House is a 36-bed, 24-hour care facility for homeless individuals with HIV/AIDS and additional illnesses that restrict their independence. The ramp will allow the residents with ambulatory issues to easily exit the building in case of fire or other disasters. DOORWAYS is an interfaith non-profit organization which provides housing and related supportive services to improve quality of life and health outcomes for people affected by HIV/AIDS.
The HBA is a local trade association of more than 600 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.
