The Home Builders Association (HBA) of St. Louis & Eastern Missouri donated $11,680 to Boys Hope Girls Hope of St. Louis. The donation will be used to install motion-sensor faucets and soap dispensers in shared kitchens and restrooms at the organization’s boys’ home, girls’ home and administrative offices, a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommendation during the global pandemic.

One of 18 affiliates across the United States and Latin America, Boys Hope Girls Hope St. Louis helps academically motivated middle and high school students rise above disadvantaged backgrounds and become successful in college and beyond. Its goal is to graduate young people who are physically, emotionally and academically prepared for post-secondary education and a productive life, breaking the cycle of poverty.

The HBA is a local trade association of more than 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.
