South Florida CEOs in front of new Habitat homes they helped roof during Habitat Broward’s 4th annual CEO Build at “A Rick Case Habitat Community” in Pompano Beach.

More than 50 CEOs and C-suite leaders from many of South Florida’s largest companies came together to raise awareness and more than $300,000 in support of affordable workforce housing in Broward County during Habitat for Humanity of Broward’s fourth annual CEO Build. The task at hand for the event included top executives dedicating time and effort to help roof four homes at “A Rick Case Habitat Community,” an historic 76-home community in Pompano Beach.

Event co-chairs Brent Burns, president and CEO of JM Family Enterprises, and Keith Koenig, chairman of City Furniture, led the task force to support affordable workforce housing in Broward County, the most cost-burdened housing market in the country.

“These CEO Build participants understand the critical need for affordable workforce housing in our community and chose to be a force for change and be a part of the solution,” said Nancy Robin CEO and executive director of Habitat for Humanity of Broward. “They collectively lead hundreds of thousands of employees.”  

By June of this year, 58 homes will be completed in “A Rick Case Habitat Community.” Additionally, Habitat Broward has acquired land and plans to build 20 townhomes in the “BBI Village” community in Fort Lauderdale and 13 townhomes in Coral Springs.

“We are always humbled by the opportunity to serve shoulder to shoulder with these hard-working families whose sweat equity helps earn them an affordable mortgage,” said Burns. “We hope this build can be a rallying cry to other companies who want to join this important mission. There is great need in our community and together we can make a significant, impactful difference for those who need it most.”
