Technology Build brings IT powerhouses together

Atlanta Habitat to complete seven renovations for 2017

Each year, TechBridge–a longtime Atlanta Habitat house sponsor–brings partners in the IT industry together for a “Technology Build.” This year, they helped complete one of seven planned Atlanta Habitat renovations on a HabII. Renovations, both of houses that we bought, as well as HabII’s–homes that are returned to us–are a key initiative to support Atlanta Habitat’s expanded mission to be a catalyst for neighborhood revitalization.

In early April, more than 300 volunteers began transforming a house in the Glenrose Heights community in southeast Atlanta into an attractive, neighborhood-enhancing home that meets the same high quality, energy-efficient standards of new Atlanta Habitat homes. HabII homes are thousands of dollars less expensive for homebuyers to purchase.

CEOs and senior technology officers from several area tech firms joined homebuyers Autrey and Altovise Love to build–and a few short weeks later, dedicate–their 13th Technology Build project with Atlanta Habitat.
