On October 10th, 25 Bank of America employee volunteers gathered to build a new homes on Foundation Lane in El Cajon, the final two in the second phase of Habitat’s 10-home community. Bank of America is committed to strengthening local communities through better housing opportunities, and has supported Habitat’s work for more than 25 years.
This home build is part of the second Global Build Week, during which Bank of America and Habitat for Humanity partnered to address affordable housing challenges, helping families build homes and achieve home ownership in more than 60 communities across the U.S., as well as 7 international cities including London, Hong Kong, Sydney, Jakarta, Manila, Toronto, and Mumbai.
“Access to affordable, stable housing is foundational to a family’s long-term financial stability and growth,” said Rick Bregman, San Diego Market President, Bank of America. “We’re pleased to partner with Habitat for Humanity and to help families like the Muñozes achieve homeownership and build a stronger, more vibrant community.”
The partnership with Habitat for Humanity is just one element of Bank of America’s broader commitment to help people live better financial lives, and support stronger communities and stable economies.
This year, Bank of America distributed $320,000 in community development funding to San Diego nonprofits to help individual and families regain and maintain financial stability through access to affordable housing, emergency housing and mortgage training.
