We are proud to share that HomeServe launched the HomeServe Cares Foundation, a four-pillar Corporate Social Responsibility program, this past April. The Foundation is backed by a substantial financial commitment to support the mission of Spreading Hope and Supporting Communities One Home at a Time. HomeServe has a long legacy of giving back to communities and helping homeowners in need. The HomeServe Cares Foundation brings together the company’s existing Corporate Social Responsibility initiatives, as well as many new ones, to make an even greater impact.
Four Pillars of the HomeServe Cares Foundation
Caring For People – This is an expansion of the existing HomeServe Cares program through which the company completes home repair jobs for disadvantaged homeowners who are facing a home emergency they are unable to handle financially. In 2018, HomeServe completed 103 HomeServe Cares jobs across 27 states.
Caring For Community – Municipalities and non-profits can apply for grants to help fund community-based projects. The two grants were awarded. Rochester, New York-based The Arc of Monroe County will use their grant to enhance and improve the conditions in their residential facilities with a focus on remodeling an aging bathroom to make it more accessible. The City of Tampa, Florida’s Parks & Recreation Department will fund the installation of ADA-compliant beach mats in order to provide access for mobility-challenged locals and visitors. Another round of grants focused on home repair programs that benefit low-income seniors and veterans has just been announced and will be awarded mid-September.
Caring For Vets – HomeServe’s veterans hiring initiative connects current and transitioning military men and women with the HomeServe contractor network with the objective of placing veterans into paid apprenticeships in the skilled trades.
Caring For Good – This pillar includes an employee-directed charitable matching program, our Helping Hands program to assist employees faced with a personal crisis, and employee volunteer efforts. HomeServe provides its employees with eight hours of paid leave each year to volunteer in their communities.
