If the recent pandemic has taught us anything, it’s the importance of not taking things for granted. At Compass, we aren’t taking for granted the business growth we’ve experienced despite the weird year we’ve all had. And we don’t take for granted the incredible team of people who work here, as well as the amazing partners and clients we get to collaborate with.
As a team, we can’t help but want to share some of the good fortune we’ve experienced with others. Giving back to the communities we live and work in isn’t just something we do for warm fuzzies or pats on the back—we do it because we can and we care.
On a sunny Tuesday in June, nearly the entire Compass team met up in Lebanon to put our time and talents towards building a long-awaited home for a local single mom, Amanda. This hard-working young lady has been waiting for over two years to qualify for a Habitat home. And Compass was thrilled to be able to help her get that much closer to her dream.
We were touched by the words of Liz Qua, Executive Director of Habitat for Humanity of Boone County, as she shared her appreciation with us.
“Thank you so much for all your amazing help today onsite! A roof in a day is an incredible thing for us. I can say we truly would not be able to complete this house or do what we do without you.”
It was truly a joy for us to be able to come alongside Habitat and Amanda in this way. The team had a blast working together that day and meeting others in the community. And we’re committed to continuing to show up and help where we can, when we can. That’s just the Compass way.
Habitat for Humanity Boone County believes that all hard-working families and individuals should have access to the benefits and stability of home ownership. This big-hearted organization helps build homes not just for new homeowners but with them. Owners put in hundreds of hours of their own time and work into making their dream of home ownership a reality. Habitat not only helps build homes, but they also counsel partner families on how to best steward their new home moving forward.
