Capital One Volunteers Make Cleaning Kits for Habitat Homeowners

Posted on by HabitatAdmin

A group of wonderful volunteers from Capital One’s Quality Assurance Department helped make 220 cleaning kits for our current Habitat Homeowners.  Volunteers worked quickly and efficiently to put these kits together in record timing!  Capital One not only provided the volunteer labor for this project, but also purchased all of the items included in these kits!

We are so appreciative of all the support Capital One provides to Richmond Habitat and our Partner Families!

Habitat for Humanity Ranked 6th Among Top Builders!

Posted on by HabitatAdmin

BUILDER magazine has announced that Habitat for Humanity is the sixth largest homebuilder in the U.S. based on house closings in 2011. Annually, the magazine compiles information from U.S. builders and lists the top 100.

BUILDER, a publication for the residential construction industry, annually compiles data from U.S. builders and ranks them by the number of closings. Habitat built or rehabilitated 4,970 homes across the United States and is the only non-publicly traded company in the top ten ranking. The organization made an additional 2,795 house repairs to existing homes, which were not accounted for in the survey.

“I’m very proud of the work of our more than 1,500 affiliates in the U.S.,” said Jonathan Reckford, Habitat for Humanity International CEO. “The fact that they are continuing to build and rehab homes in these difficult economic times is a testament to their resourcefulness and their commitment to families, affordable housing and the communities they serve. We are grateful to our donors and volunteers whose generosity makes this work possible.”

Habitat ranked sixth on the list last year and first made the top 10 in 2010 as the eighth largest builder.

Habitat made an additional 2,795 house repairs to existing homes, which were not accounted for in the survey. Habitat also provides a wide range of services for its homebuyers, including financial education workshops.
