On behalf of the Home Builders Charitable Foundation (HBCF), 2018 HBA President Dale Black of CMS Homes (left) presented a $10,937 donation to Julie Gary, chief development officer for Marygrove.

The donation will be used to remove, repair and refinish the industrial-grade metal cabinets in one of Marygrove’s boys’ residential treatment units. Marygrove is dedicated to providing a safe living environment for children and youth while addressing their mental health needs. Marygrove serves approximately 225 children and young adults each day (approximately 1,300 each year) who are struggling with behavioral, emotional or other mental health issues. These challenges are often the result of abuse, neglect or other early childhood traumas. The desired outcome for each child is to learn how to manage their mental health condition and develop life skills so they can move to a less restrictive environment.

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.
