The Hampton Roads REALTORS® Foundation helps to keep income-constrained homeowners warm, safe and dry
HAMPTON ROADS – The Hampton Roads REALTORS® Foundation has contributed $5,000 to the Home Repair Program of Habitat SHR. In partnership with the City of Chesapeake, the initiative seeks to make vital home restorations and provide ADA accessibility for income-limited homeowners. The program largely serves single parents and provides a way for them to stay in their homes and maintain a warm, safe and dry environment for their families.
“We’re happy to give this donation to Habitat SHR for their Home Repairs Project. It is a wonderful way for Habitat SHR as well as the REALTORS® Association to help improve people’s homes and thereby increase the quality of their neighborhoods,” said the HRRA Foundation’s Chair, Jeremy Caleb Johnson.
The Home Repair Program perfectly aligns with the Hampton Roads REALTORS® (HRRA) Foundation’s mission to advance safe, decent, and affordable housing in the communities they serve, making the foundation’s contribution on behalf of the real estate industry an easy decision.
“Homeownership is the key to a stable community, and we’re protecting human dignity by giving [families] the opportunity to repair their homes that they love,” explained Habitat SHR Executive Director Frank Hruska. He continued in a moment of gratitude, “It takes a community to have a community. When the community comes together to help someone they don’t know, that person then becomes part of the community, and it makes a big difference.”
The HRRA Foundation is a tax-exempt, 501(C)(3) non-profit organization sponsored by the Hampton Roads REALTORS® Association. It was founded as a channel for the charitable and community service energies of the professional real estate industry. For more information, visit hrra.com/about-hrra.
