On behalf of the Home Builders Charitable Foundation (HBCF), 2018 HBA President Dale Black of CMS Homes presented a $15,000 donation to Deirdre Schaneman, resource development operations manager for Habitat for Humanity Saint Louis (HFHSL).
The donation will be used to support Habitat for Humanity Saint Louis’ 2018 Build program. The funding will play an integral role in helping HFHSL reach its goal of building eight new homes in the southeast quadrant of St. Louis City – including Bevo Mills, Carondelet and Marine Villa, three 2-story homes in the Tiffany neighborhood and five homes in the La Saison neighborhood with one of the five being HFHSL’s 400th house. Once the homes are completed they will be purchased by hardworking, low-income families who will perform 350 hours of sweat equity to qualify for their purchase, and take on a 30-year, affordable mortgage payment.
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.
