Over the past year, SEG Inc has collaborated with Sacramento Habitat for Humanity by assisting with the installation of solar electric systems on their homes. Last week, our Operations Manager, Brian Gardner, was invited to attend Habitat for Humanity’s annual Hammy Awards Night Dinner. It was a celebration in recognition of all the accomplishments of 2018, which including the contribution of over 20,000 hours of volunteer labor, the construction of 8 new homes and repair of 32 homes in California, and the construction of 122 homes for low income families in Nicaragua (on behalf of the Nicaragua Habitat for Humanity chapter). They created a compelling video summarizing their work last year, which you can watch on Youtube.
We are honored to work with a non-profit organization doing such critical work to positively transform families and neighborhoods in Sacramento. Habitat for Humanity of Greater Sacramento’s goal is to eliminate “substandard housing locally and worldwide through constructing, rehabilitating and preserving homes; by advocating for fair and just housing policies; and by providing training and access to resources to help families improve their shelter conditions.” Habitat for Humanity’s mission to actively build communities, families, and hope is driven by a firm belief in the Christian faith and in social equality, along with the principle that all people deserve a dignified place to call home. They empower low-income families to realistically accomplish their goal of home ownership and stability by offering training and resources to help families construct their own homes. Habitat Home owners contribute 500 hours of labor, an investment of sweat equity, into building a home that is affordable, with a 30-year, 0% interest mortgage, for a brighter future for their families. The result is more confident, stable, and healthy families and more beautiful and safe neighborhoods. Read more about Habitat for Humanity’s work on their website.
