Habitat for Humanity of Berks County is pleased to announce that Gateway Health Plan, Inc. (“Gateway Health”), a leading managed care organization dedicated to caring for the total health of its members, has joined the Miltimore Street Project as a Rooftop Sponsor.
“At Gateway Health, our mission is to care for the whole person in all communities where the need is greatest,” said Karen Rollins-Fitch, Manager, Government and Community Affairs, Gateway Health.
“We know that safe, stable, and affordable housing is an essential component of living a healthy life. We are proud to partner with Habitat for Humanity of Berks County on the Miltmore Street Project to support healthy housing for the residents of Reading.”
“Our community partners are vital to the success of Habitat Berks,” said Executive Director Tim Daley. “We are thankful for the support of Gateway Health.”
The new homes on Miltimore Street are the next step in The Buttonwood Gateway Project. The houses are designed to establish a healthy and supportive family environment with reduced housing density to improve the overall quality of life in that neighborhood.
“This project includes three city blocks, West Buttonwood Street, Tulpehocken Street, and Miltimore Street,” explained Daley. “We are creating neighborhoods in which people will want to live and interact with others.”
Gateway Health joins Performance Toyota in sponsoring the Miltimore Street home. If your company would like to partner with Habitat Berks on the Miltimore Street project, please contact Penny Hummel at firstname.lastname@example.org or 610-373-3439 x301.
About Habitat for Humanity
Habitat for Humanity of Berks County (Habitat) is a non-profit 501(c)(3) charitable organization that believes all people deserve a decent life and the power to build their own futures. Habitat exists to create affordable homeownership opportunities for moderate-income families. Families who purchase Habitat for Humanity homes must contribute 200 hours of sweat equity. Habitat relies on volunteers and families contributing sweat equity for the unskilled labor needed to build the homes. Working in this way, they believe they provide families a hand up rather than a handout, while also providing a way for people to assist hard-working families in our community.
