This past month, Rockspring employees had the rewarding opportunity to volunteer at a Habitat for Humanity worksite in the Fifth Ward of Houston.
Employees spent the day constructing the interior frame walls of a one-story three-bedroom home. Houston Habitat for Humanity, with thousands of sponsors and volunteers, has built over 940 homes for deserving, low-income Houstonians. Habitat Partner Families contribute 300 hours of “sweat equity,” hands on involvement in construction of their home and other organizational activities, and complete training on home ownership best practices in order to purchase a home with a no-interest mortgage.
A very fortunate and hard-working single mom with two kids will be the owner of this new beautiful home by June 1st. Rockspring looks forward to being on-site when the keys are handed to the family and celebrates their first day of home ownership!
