Sixers Strong! On Wednesday, August 6th a group of 21 volunteers from the Philadelphia 76ers helped us to prepare one of our larger homes for a new family.
Changing the World
During the week of July 14th, 50 volunteers from World Changers helped ACHIEVEability to prepare three homes.This young and energetic group of volunteers installed siding, installed floor tiles and floor decking, demoed walls, and helped to landscape. World Changers have been a consistent supporter of ACHIEVEability and our mission. This year's project marks the 7th consecutive year the group has partnered with our organization during the summer to provide their hands-on and much needed volunteer services.
ACHIEVEability is proud to announce that we are receiving a $500,000 grant under the Federal Home Loan Bank (FHLBank) of Pittsburgh’s Affordable Housing Program (AHP) with the assistance of PNC Bank, National Association. The announcement was made on July 7th by Congressman Chaka Fattah during an awards ceremony at Depaul House in Philadelphia. This grant is one of seven grants totaling $3 million in affordable housing support to complete more than 400 additional units in the City of Philadelphia.
On Friday, June 20th we welcomed an energetic group of volunteers from Grant Thornton to help prepare two homes for new families moving into the ACHIEVEability program. 17 staff from Grant Thornton gave their time and sweat equity to help make a difference for the families that we serve. This was the second time Grant Thornton staff have volunteered services for one of our housing turnover projects.
