Renovating Homes, Rebuilding Lives
What's a community? It's more than the shops, restaurants, and streets in a particular area. A community is a very simple thing—it's the people who live there.
No firm knows this better than Commonwealth Financial Network®, our broker/dealer. Commonwealth's Giving Back initiative is dedicated to working with existing organizations to benefit others, as well as to creating programs to fill a void that may have been overlooked.
It was with great pride that we joined Commonwealth and Habitat for Humanity of San Antonio on November 2, 2012, to help build a new single-family home for a low-income family in the San Antonio area.
Habitat for Humanity is a decades-old organization whose mission is to bring together both families in need and volunteers through building homes, strengthening neighborhoods, and improving the community in which it operates. The organization is dedicated to transforming lives and fulfilling for selected families the American dream of home ownership.
Volunteering and renovating the townhomes was a great reminder that doing good has an unexpected reward: making you feel good about yourself and your community. Thanks, Commonwealth and Habitat for Humanity Greater Boston! We needed that!
