Habitat for Humanity ranks No. 6 among largest homebuilders in the U.S.
Rockwall, TX (June 28, 2011) - Rockwall Habitat for Humanity’s work to provide affordable housing in Rockwall has helped Habitat for Humanity International rank as the sixth largest homebuilder on Builder magazine’s top 100 list. With 6,032 closings in 2010, this is the second time Habitat for Humanity has placed in the top 10.
Our placement on the Builder 100 list is a testament to what can be accomplished when people work together. So many families in the United States and around the world face an incredible need for affordable housing, and this need only increases during challenging economic times. Habitat works every day to help these families, and we are grateful for the generosity of our donors, volunteers and advocates who have joined our efforts to help families obtain safe, decent and affordable homes and to strengthen communities.
Larry Gluth, senior vice president of U.S. and Canada for Habitat for Humanity International
In 2010, Rockwall Habitat helped 3 families obtain affordable housing and are currently building the latest house on Peter's Colony near the Post Office. Manhattan Construction has graciously sponsored the current house, donating numerous tools and supplies as well as time. Their generosity has helped Habitat tremendously and will continue to help on future builds with their donations.
We are thrilled that our work to provide affordable housing has contributed to Habitat's ranking as the sixth largest builder in the United States. We are proud to help families obtain affordable housing, and we thank our supporters for their commitment to helping families in need.
