Compass partners with Habitat for Humanity to support safe and affordable housing
ATLANTA (Dec. 13, 2021) — Compass, Inc., a U.S. based technology-enabled residential real estate brokerage, has joined Habitat for Humanity International as a new partner and committed a donation of $200,000 to support the global housing organization’s mission of building safe, decent and affordable homes.
“Similar to Compass’ mission to help everyone find their place in the world, Habitat for Humanity is dedicated to building a world where everyone has a place to call home,” said Helene Weissburg, head of Compass’ philanthropic organization, Compass Cares. “I couldn’t be more excited to help build homes in our communities nationwide alongside our agents and employees.”
Compass Cares, launched in 2019, empowers agents and employees alike to support meaningful causes right where it counts most: at home. Through Compass Cares, 100% of Compass transactions lead to a donation back to its local Compass Cares Community Funds nationwide. Compass’ donation to Habitat for Humanity will help fund affordable home construction in various Compass markets across the nation. Compass agents and employees will also have the opportunity to volunteer with Habitat for Humanity on home construction and repair projects in their local communities throughout 2022.
“We are excited for our new partnership with Compass. Their support will make a transformational, positive impact on the communities we serve,” said Julie Laird Davis, vice president of corporate and cause partnerships at Habitat for Humanity International. “We look forward to working together in the new year and welcoming both Compass agents and employees on our build sites to work alongside homeowners who are eager to build a better future for themselves and their families.”
About Habitat for Humanity
Driven by the vision that everyone needs a decent place to live, Habitat for Humanity found its earliest inspirations as a grassroots movement on an interracial community farm in south Georgia. Since its founding in 1976, the Christian housing organization has grown to become a leading global nonprofit working in local communities across all 50 states in the U.S. and in more than 70 countries. Families and individuals in need of a hand up partner with Habitat for Humanity to build or improve a place they can call home. Habitat homeowners help build their own homes alongside volunteers and pay an affordable mortgage. Through financial support, volunteering or adding a voice to support affordable housing, everyone can help families achieve the strength, stability and self-reliance they need to build better lives for themselves. Through shelter, we empower. To learn more, visit habitat.org.
