Boca Raton, Florida (PRWEB) November 22, 2016
Gables Residential has been giving back to its communities in many ways around the country. One of the most significant ways has taken place over the past 16 years by dedicating a day where all associates come together in their respective regions to focus on giving back to a worthy cause. Gables Day encompasses a full day in each region throughout the fall where approximately 1,000 associates come together to volunteer their time and share in the experience of this special day. Since 2000, Gables Day has resulted in contributions of over $1.2 million in goods and services and approximately 125,000 hours of labor and dedication by Gables associates.
In Lake Worth, FL, Gables Day recently took place with Homesafe, a nationally accredited non-profit organization protecting Palm Beach County’s and South Florida’s most vulnerable residents – victims of child abuse and domestic violence. Gables associates spent the day working with Homesafe to help complete the latest independent living facility offered by Homesafe. The Independent Living Housing Program (Pond Place) will be opening on November 16 to provide safe, affordable housing for clients who have "aged out" of group home foster care.
According to CEO Matt Ladika at HomeSafe, “I am just so glad that Gables Residential reached out to me yet again to assist us completing our Independent Living Program at Pond Place. We completely needed their help to meet our ribbon cutting date of November the 16th. The finished product was phenomenal and first class. We are so grateful for our partnership with Gables. Their generosity continues to improve the lives of the infants, children, young adults and families we serve.”
“It is so great to see our associates all working together and to see the plan coming together and truly making a difference,” Regional Service Manager for Gables Residential in South Florida Brian Hopkins shared. “It is truly rewarding.”
