HomeAid America, a building industry charity and one of the nation's largest builders of housing for the homeless, has announced that FNTG Builder Services, a division of the nation's leading group of title companies and insurance writers that includes Chicago Title, Commonwealth Title, and Fidelity National Title, will continue in the non-profit's Corporate Partnership program as a national sponsor.
FNTG Builder Services will continue to be represented on the HomeAid America Board by Karen Robertson, executive vice president, and regional manager. "I'm honored to continue serving HomeAid America on behalf of FNTG Builder Services," said Robertson. "Moving into 2017, we will continue to look for opportunities to get even more team members involved with the organization at both the national and local chapter levels to help further the HomeAid mission and vision."
HomeAid America CEO Peter Simons said, "FNTG Builder Services and its family of title companies have been supporters of HomeAid across the country for several years, and supporting HomeAid America as Gold Level Corporate Partner is a huge boost to our organization. FNTG was also instrumental in helping us get our new LA chapter started this past year, and their Sara Soudani sits on the HomeAid LA Board of Directors."
Over the past few years, FNTG Builder Services has also been an active supporter of Meyers Research's housing forecast events benefiting HomeAid America. In the past three years, their family of brands has been a significant contributor in sponsorships for these events. In addition to financial support, their representatives sit on numerous HomeAid chapter Boards of Directors, providing valuable leadership for the organization at the local level.
HomeAid was founded by the building industry in 1989 as a way to give back to the community by addressing the issue of homelessness. According to the National Law Center on Homelessness, each year over 3.5 million Americans experience homelessness at some point. Nearly 1.5 million of them are children. HomeAid's program identifies charities in the community working to help the homeless that need additional facilities in which to house people and provide programmatic resources such as job skills training and financial counseling, as well as physical and emotional support. HomeAid then finds builders who are willing to take on these projects and build them at a deep discount by enlisting their trade partners to give their time and materials as in-kind donations.
