Helping the Homeless
Most of the Triad’s residents are fortunate to have a place to call home, but nearly thousands of people in our area are homeless—living under bridges, in wooded area or temporary shelters, or "couch surfing" from place to place. Because homes are our business, it’s important to us to provide assistance to people who cannot afford reliable housing and support for people transitioning from homelessness.
We are proud to have aided the efforts of the Greensboro Urban Ministry and the nondenominational Church Under the Bridge project of Christ Church Greensboro, as well as the Barnabas Network. To learn more about working with one of these Partners, please visit our Partners Page.
Affordable Housing Assistance
While REALTORS make our living helping individuals and families who are able to purchase and sell homes, we know that home ownership and its attendant upkeep, repairs, and expenses can be a hardship. We routinely support organizations that give money, time, and supplies to ensure that people who own their own homes can stay in them safely and securely.
We are especially proud of our work with the Community Housing Solutions (CHS) non-profit, which repairs homes for homeowners who cannot physically or financially afford the work themselves. CHS has invested millions locally to preserve affordable housing, using countless volunteer hours to augment the work sf their skilled construction staff.
Children & Schools
Because real estate professionals know that much of the value of a home is in the community surrounding it and the quality of life its owners can expect, we also are committed to helping fund initiatives that improve the communities we serve across the Piedmont Triad.
That’s why we’ve provided financial support to programs that help children and schools in our area, such as Hunter Elementary School in Greensboro, which received a grant for Leveled Literacy Intervention kits, 4th Grade Field Trips, and school supplies, and KidsPath, a program of Hospice and Palliative Care of Greensboro, which received $2,000.00.
Familes in Crisis
Housing is a critical issue for women trying to escape abusive relationships or struggling with substance abuse, especially if children or other dependents are involved. We are enthusiastic supporters of efforts that support, encourage, and ensure families in crisis have the best possible chance of overcoming the challenges facing them.
In recent years, we've worked with Hannah's Haven, a Teen Challenge Center for women in recovery from substance abuse; and Family Services' Clara House, a shelter for women and their children who are victims for domestic violence.
