On October 2, 2019, employees from Ledcor Development LP and Ledcor Technical Services (LTS) took part in a Habitat for Humanity Community Build in the town of Fullerton, California. Our team worked on 4 homes that are part of a 12-home project on Valencia St. in Fullerton.
The team put our construction backgrounds to work, helping with baseboard cutting and nailing, door framing and shipment receipt and off-loading. Our site superintendent made sure that we knew site safety protocol, and were well trained on power tools and proper site conduct.
Habitat for Humanity is an international organization founded in 1976 in Americus, Georgia. Habitat is dedicated to eliminating substandard housing locally, and worldwide through constructing, rehabilitating and preserving homes. To date, they have helped renovate and repair over 800,000 homes worldwide. They work with local communities advocating for fair and just housing policies, provide training and resources to families, and help access resources that will improve their quality of housing conditions.
In Orange County alone, they have helped to provide 49 resale homes equating to 176 people served and repaired over 108 homes.
Thank you to all 15 volunteers who participated on this team build, we hope to participate next year building another home with this great organization. To learn more about Habitat for Humanity, please visit their website (https://www.habitat.org/)
