Register now for the CEO Build Luncheon
We invite all Upstate executives to this free networking event to learn more about getting involved with socioeconomic mobility and affordable housing through Habitat for Humanity of Greenville County.
February 15, 2023 from 11:30am - 1:00pm @ The Commerce Club
Our local business leaders have helped drive the phenomenal growth our county has experienced over the past several years. Business is booming, property values are on the rise and newcomers are flocking to Greenville, which is ranked as one of the fastest growing city in the United States. However, the news is not good for everyone; studies show that 1 in 5 Greenville County residents struggle to find affordable housing options.
Stable and affordable housing has significant long-term impacts on the success and health of children, the ability for families to elevate their socioeconomic status, the investment returned to the community, and so much more.
Thankfully, for the past 11 years, thoughtful and caring local leaders have stepped up to address this issue head-on through innovative efforts like Habitat for Humanity of Greenville County’s annual CEO Build program. This annual program recruits influential local business leaders to lend their skills to build safe, energy-efficient and affordable homes for families in our community, impacting positive change, one house at a time.
Each of the participating CEOs pledges company funding and staff volunteer hours to help build the project house. They also work on-site personally during construction alongside their own team members, community volunteers and future Habitat families, to broaden their perspectives on issues of importance to our community.
