Bank of America volunteers kicked off home builds in three Michigan counties in partnership with Habitat for Humanity to benefit three local families working to find affordable housing in Michigan.
This week, Bank of America volunteers are working to reroof, paint and build homes in Oakland, Wayne and Kent counties.
“Bank of America’s ongoing contribution to Habitat for Humanity’s work has created a deep impact, one that allows us to continue the advancement of our mission: building homes, communities and hope,” said Kelsey Maccombs Howard, spokeswoman for Habitat for Humanity of Michigan.
“Home ownership is a critical part of financial security and a cornerstone of thriving neighborhoods, but it is hard to achieve for many Michigan residents, particularly low- and moderate-income families,” said Matt Elliott, Michigan Market President, Bank of America. “This build and our wider investments are part of our ongoing commitment to make Michigan a stronger and more vibrant state.”
Elliott says this year, Bank of America is investing $167,000 in Michigan to support access to affordable housing and support future homeowners with coaching and advice, while helping families move toward financial stability and supporting individuals and families to stay in their homes.
Bank of America has supported Habitat for Humanity’s work in Michigan for more than 25 years.
