Home Builders Blitz

Habitat for Humanity Greater Birmingham, Inc. (Habitat Birmingham) and the Greater Birmingham Association of Home Builders Join Forces to Make Affordable Housing a Reality for Eleven Families – 10th Annual Home Builders Blitz

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. — Members of the Greater Birmingham Association of Home Builders along with Habitat Birmingham raised the walls on 11  homes recently, as part of  the nation-wide 2015 Habitat for Humanity Home Builders Blitz, to provide low and moderate income families quality affordable home.
During this year’s Home Builders Blitz, 11 families will achieve their dream of homeownership, thanks to the skilled labor provided by the local professional homebuilders and construction companies.  The professional home builders and Habitat Birmingham worked closely together to organize this year’s blitz build securing subcontractors, donations of building materials and fundraising.
“This is our 10th Annual Home Builders Blitz  and we are very excited to partner again with the local professional home builders and contractors to engage them in Habitat’s mission of helping families in need with quality affordable homes,” said Charles Moore, Greater Birmingham Habitat for Humanity President and CEO. “By sharing their talents and skills, we are able to increase the number of new homes that we will build this year and help more families in need of affordable housing. We are especially grateful and thank all the builders, contractors and sponsors for their commitment and dedication in making the 2015 Home Builders Blitz a success.”
Participating home builders include: AGH Homes, Bluestone Building, Compass Home Builders, Drake Homes, Embassy Homes, Habitat Birmingham, Harris Doyle Homes, Murphy Home Builders, Taylor Burton Company, Thoroughbred Homes, and Wright Homes.
“Since our first Home Builders Blitz in 2006, our partnership with the local home builders and our community sponsors has made the dream of homeownership a reality for 86 families. After this year’s Blitz, that number of families served by blitz builds goes up to 97. This accomplishment was only made possible by the generosity and support of the local home builders, contractors, sponsors and volunteers” Moore continued.
Community sponsors of the 2015 Home Builders Blitz include: Wells Fargo, Alabama Housing Finance Authority, Larry and Karen Norris, Alabama Power, Mortgage Bankers Association of Alabama, Greater Birmingham Association of Home Builders and MERSCorp.  Other community partners and material contributors include:  Bancorp South, Dave Condon PC, Aliant Bank, Fidelity (Lion) Bank, Jones Stephens, Absolute Concrete, Alabama Brick, Nucor Steel, and Huggins Sod Farm.
Construction on the 11 homes will continue until noon Thursday, May 7th when the Dedication Ceremony and Presentation of the Keys will take place.   With the help of hundreds of volunteers, builders, subcontractors and the “sweat equity” of the future homeowners all the blitz homes will be completed and be ready for move-in by noon on Thursday, May 7th.
