On behalf of the Home Builders Charitable Foundation (HBCF), 2016 HBA President Kim Hibbs of Hibbs Homes (left) presented a $10,000 donation to Kari Davidson, director of major gifts for Ranken Technical College.

The donation will be used to support Ranken Technical College’s neighborhood revitalization and home building program, RCDC (Ranken Community Development Corporation). The RCDC was founded in 1994 to revitalize North City and give Ranken students real-world experience in building permanent homes. Carpentry, HVAC/refrigeration, plumbing, architectural technology, electrical and industrial technology students spend a portion of their second year building the homes and gaining valuable experience. Program participants are currently completing their 61st home. Ranken homes are sold as single-family, affordable housing and receive a ten-year real estate tax abatement from the City of St. Louis.

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.
