Meet Our 2016 Award Winners Below:
Home Builders Care Award |Sable Developing, Inc. ~ Bockheim Home Build
Recognizes an outstanding builder or re modeler whose project has met the needs of a family/homeowner with special housing n
eeds and/or a disability.
In a thriving housing market Sable didn’t have to help the Bockheim family, but because they did, the family’s twin girls who were never supposed to live are now thriving. Born 12 weeks premature, the girls weighed just over two pounds and faced on-going health challenges. Their new Sable-built home provided a safe, clean, healthy and affordable home for the entire Bockheim family to live, love and grow in.
Community Builder Award | Home Repair Services ~ Access Ramp Volunteers
Recognizes an outstanding builder or general contractor whose project has impacted the lives of many in the
community with special housing needs and/or a disability.
A core group of Home Repair Services volunteers have spent 10,000 hours volunteering to build access ramps for more than 500 families who can now safely enter and exit their homes. In rain, snow and sun they can always be counted on to be there for the disabled in our community who need their help.
Recognizes an outstanding individual or organization whose efforts to develop the next generation of housing industry professionals is making a positive impact in the industry and community.
Habitat for Humanity of Kent County plays a key role in developing the next generation of housing industry professionals as they provide hands-on construction experience for students at YouthBuild/Bethany Christian Services, Grand Rapids Public Schools Academy of Design and Construction, Grand Rapids Community College M-Tech and Job Corps.
