Watch as Habitat House Takes Shape

Home is about having a shelter and family center, but it also should be a place to create lasting memories, says Tom Wald, chief investment officer (and budding builder) at Transamerica.

Over the years, Transamerica employees around the country have volunteered their time to help families build houses with Habitat for Humanity. For the first time in Denver, Transamerica is sponsoring a full house build from start to finish to make the home a little more affordable for the family of Francis and Schola when they buy it later this year.

Already, dozens of Transamerica employees have hammered nails, measured siding, and raised walls for the house. Francis and Schola also spent 200 hours working on their house and those of other families.

“They’re putting in a lot of work on this house as well,” Wald said. “This is going to give them not just a sense of a new home, but a sense of really constructing a home, which is a unique experience for almost any kind of homeowner.”

Check back with the Transamerica blog for updates on the Denver home build.

Transamerica is committed to helping the Habitat for Humanity program across the United States. In the past year, Transamerica employee volunteers have worked to help families in need of decent, affordable housing in:

  • St. Petersburg, Florida
  • Cedar Rapids, Iowa
  • Los Angeles, California
  • Little Rock, Arkansas
  • Plano, Texas
  • Baltimore, Maryland
  • Memphis, Tennessee
