WEYMOUTH, MA, ISSUED APRIL 24, 2019…Callahan Construction Managers, a full-service construction management company that has served the New England and Northeast regions for more than 65 years, is partnering with South Shore Habitat for Humanity (SSHH) in its effort to provide safe, healthy and affordable housing to families in need on the south shore.
As a “SSHH Community Builder,” Callahan’s donation directly supports the organization’s mission to “build strength, stability and self-reliance through shelter”. The community builder program is a yearlong partnership designed to foster collaboration, communication and civic engagement through employee volunteerism.
“We are proud to partner with South Shore Habitat for Humanity to build affordable housing for families in need,” said Patrick Callahan, President of Callahan Construction Managers, “We’ve been volunteering for years with the organization and most recently had a group onsite during Women in Construction week. Our employees appreciate the opportunity to work side-by-side with family partners to help them realize their dream of home ownership. It is rewarding to know that we can utilize our skills to help improve people’s lives for the better.”
Callahan Construction Managers, also hopes to support the work of the SSHH ReStore, where gently used home goods and surplus building materials get a second life. This ensures vast quantities of material are saved from landfills each year helping to protect the environment. “For more than 32 years South Shore Habitat for Humanity has been changing lives and improving its communities,” Callahan continued. “Through our partnership, we can help to ensure their continued success.”
“We are so grateful for Callahan Construction Managers, support,” said Evelyn Nelson, Vice President of Development for South Shore Habitat for Humanity. “Their employee engagement and financial commitment to our program are just what we need to achieve our mission of providing more affordable housing to families. Since 1986 we have built 58 homes, but we need to build more. Together, with Callahan Construction Managers, we can do just that.”
South Shore Habitat for Humanity is currently building a six-family townhome community in Duxbury, MA, and recently announced that a new home build at 10 Electric Avenue in Easton will commence this summer. Companies and individuals are invited to help our family partners build their homes or volunteer at the ReStore at 357 Columbia Road, Hanover, MA. (www.sshabitat.org/volunteer)
