100 volunteers from the Carpinteria based company will complete a Habitat for Humanity home repair for a lowincome homeowner.
SANTA BARBARA, Calif., November 2, 2015 — Habitat for Humanity of Southern Santa Barbara County will complete a home repair for an elderly lowincome homeowner on Friday, November 6th with volunteers from Procore Technologies. Over 100 Procore employees will volunteer to complete the repairs at the home of Sally, a 94-year-old homeowner in need of help maintaining a safe and decent place to live.
A Brush with Kindness is a program of Habitat for Humanity that helps low-income homeowners struggling to restore and maintain a safe and decent place to live. The program was created with the goal to help homeowners reclaim the pride and dignity of homeownership by offering affordable means of exterior home improvements and remain in their home.
"We are thankful for Procore's partnership as we increase the number of families served by helping homeowners stay in their homes," said Jon Peterson, Habitat for Humanity SSBC CEO. "We are grateful for Procore's support of this workday and the donation of their construction software which will help streamline a lot of our construction processes."
"Like Procore, Habitat for Humanity puts construction at the forefront of building stronger communities," said Steve Zahm, Procore President. "We're proud to be partnering with them to help build our local community."
The home repair will consist of repairing the damaged roof, replacing windows and doors, painting the exterior of the home, and clearing debris and green waste from the property.
