Our local business leaders have benefitted greatly from and 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 was recently ranked as the fourth-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.
Thankfully, 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.
