Catalyst Solutions Helps Community through Habitat for HumanityFort Lauderdale, FL – February 27, 2014
This past Wednesday, Catalyst Solutions partnered with Habitat for Humanity to help build housing in the low-income housing district of Fort Lauderdale.
Before starting the project, the Catalyst team gathered to listen to the site foreman explain how Habitat for Humanity operates and who was going to live in the home that was our project. It was a unique situation that swelled up the eyes of all of the volunteers. A young girl who is handicapped from head to toe would live in the house, and every aspect of it was being built to accommodate her and all of the machines and equipment necessary to care for her. Immediately, the team got to work with this girl as their motivation. Habitat for Humanity is an unbelievable and humbling experience that enriched the lives of those Catalyst members who had the opportunity to take part in it.
“For me, the experience gave me an appreciation for those less fortunate than us, as well as appreciation for the hard work that the Habitat foremen, architects and volunteers dedicate to these homes. It was a fantastic team building experience for us that made us feel that we were giving back to the community at the same time,” said Jeff Stoffa, Manager of Strategic Initiatives at Catalyst Solutions.
Catalyst Cares is Catalyst’s social responsibility program which is committed to supporting charitable causes in the community. This program encourages employee participation by offering three days of paid time off for volunteering endeavors annually.
