Schindler is committed to making housing available in the communities where our employees and customers live. Our partnership with Morris Habitat is just one example of that commitment. The build started with groundbreaking in April of 2017 and concluded in May of 2018. Schindler provided both financial and volunteer support for the duplex project, contributing $100,000 and recruiting nearly 150 Schindler employees to participate. Schindler staff worked side-by-side with the recipient families to complete construction.

“What I love about our partnership with Habitat is how it provides a great start for families and their children through the stability that comes with home ownership,” said Ergenbright. “Having a place to call home and feel safe, even though that is very basic, it creates a great platform – it’s part of that formula to have a decent chance in life.” Watch his acceptance video below:
