Community Builders is on a mission to make positive change in our city. We do this through what we like to call “social impact”.
People make conscious decisions every day to improve the world. Making a positive social impact is as easy as shopping at stores that offer living wages to their employees or sell fare trade products, volunteering, sponsoring children, rescuing animals, taking public transportation or just by showing kindness.
One issue that is near to our hearts at Community Builders is affordable housing and we have worked very hard to be a part of the solution to this problem in our city. What issues are you passionate about? Come and talk with us – we love strategizing new and innovative ways to collaborate
with individuals and groups that have a heart for others.
We realize that this is not a normal thing to do for a building company…but we are not a normal building company. Building is just one of the tangible ways we use our talents to give back to our Community. Our heart lies in people and we love helping others improve their social impact and reach their philanthropic goals. If you’re not sure how you can help, you could become involved in our Second Suite initiatives, our 1% give-back plan
with custom homes, or our homes for change program. There really are so many possibilities.
Let’s work together to create a custom plan for your next building project that will improve the lives, deepen our social impact and inspire others to make a difference in their Community.
