The donation will be used to support Habitat for Humanity Saint Louis’ 2016 build program. The funding will play an integral role in helping HFHSL reach its goal of building and rehabbing 26 homes throughout St. Louis City and County. HFHSL is constructing 17 new homes in the north St. Louis City subdivision of Lookaway Summit and five new homes are under construction in Hazelwood. HFHSL will finish its building season by rehabbing four properties throughout St. Louis County.

The HBA is a local trade association of nearly 600 member firms representing the residential construction industry. The Home Builders Charitable Foundation, the HBA’s charitable arm, is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing housing assistance to people or organizations with special shelter needs.
