In addition to housing, the children have access to educational programs which include typical core curriculum surrounded by music, speech/language and occupational therapies.
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.
