It is hard to believe that for as long as Callahan Construction Managers have been in existence that they are just now finishing only their second philanthropic project for South Shore Habitat for Humanity.
Habitat for Humanity is a global nonprofit housing organization that is located in all 50 states throughout the United States and also in 70 countries worldwide. The organization aims to make sure that everyone has adequate housing.
There are various reasons why people may find themselves homeless or without decent housing. However, having a place to call home fills a person with a sense of belonging. Through their efforts to provide affordable housing for everyone, they have helped thousands of people get off the streets and into a home of their own.
This was not the first time that they built in Duxbury on Feinberg Bog Road. This was the second phase of construction. The first building project took place earlier in 2019. The project would provide for six families in six townhomes. With the addition of these six townhomes, it would bring the total homes built for Habitat for Humanity to ten in the Duxbury area. South Shore Habitat for Humanity had a dedication ceremony to dedicate the new homes. The families who would occupy the first new homes built were in attendance at the ceremony and were given the keys to their new homes.
The day after that ceremony, Callahan had the responsibility of getting right back to work to begin adding the finishing touches to the homes. The final units were projected to be completed before the end of 2019.
South Shore Habitat for Humanity has been providing affordable, and safe housing for the past 33 years for hundreds of families throughout the area. Callahan and South Shore Habitat for Humanity has been fortunate enough to have the longstanding relationship that they have because it has benefited many in the South Shore area. Callahan is now a Community Builder Sponsor and is very proud of their involvement. They have been involved in four volunteer build days. These four building days have been done at the community sponsorship level.
Some simply don’t care about the plight of others. They only worry about themselves. However, it is clear that not everyone feels this way and that some are appreciative of what they have. Those who want to express their gratitude often are the ones who get involved in projects, such as Habitat for Humanity.
Houses built by Habitat for Humanity is made up of volunteers, both skilled and unskilled. This includes known construction companies, such as Callahan Construction Managers. Many who get involved with building projects, voluntarily, admit that it gives them a sense of purpose knowing that they are doing something so meaningful to others.
When local businesses get involved, it puts them in a favorable light with those in the community.
