Homes for Good is about being a #ChangeAgent. It is about reaching beyond my every-day real estate activities to highlight the good in our communities, support charities doing good work and create authentic relationships with good people.
Every month I will work in partnership with ONE local non-profit and highlight them throughout my realty interactions. For every open house I host I will donate $5. For every person who walks through the door I will donate $1. My Title Sponsor, Austin Bates and V.I.P. MORTGAGE INC will generously match my donations.
January is dedicated to an organization that I hold a great deal of respect and admiration for, and that is the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Scottsdale (BGCS).
For this campaign, I am working specifically with the Hartley & Ruth Barker Branch – Teen Center located in South Scottsdale. The branch as a whole provides youth development programs that support a commitment to learning, positive values, healthy habits, and high expectations for success as an adult. Professionally trained staff offer caring relationships and connections to new friends that reinforce a sense of belonging, personal accountability, civility, and civic responsibility.
Research shows that the more time youth spend at a Boys & Girls Club, the more likely they are to feel more connected to school and have greater post-secondary aspirations. The door to our kids’ futures is often crowded by temptation and misdirection making it difficult for them to reach their full potential. The Boys & Girls clubs have provided an avenue for safety and growth for today’s youth.
The branch’s Teen Center offers teen services to members in grades 7-12. Programs are uniquely developed based on the needs and interests of the members that come through their doors. Field trips, events and programs are created to benefit teenage youth and help them grow socially and academically, while still keeping a focus on fun.
Special thanks to BGCS staff members Myles Harper, Beethoven Felix, Audra Holt, and Caitlin Pigott for all of your time and effort in helping make this all happen. You are true heroes in our community!
My goal is for 20 OPEN HOUSES this month.
