Hard-working families receive more than house keys during emotional ceremony

On a sunny Saturday in Pompano Beach, four deserving families received the keys to their brand-new homes during an emotional ceremony with Habitat for Humanity of Broward and JM Family Enterprises. As a long-time supporter of Habitat for Humanity of Broward, JM Family has now served as the Family Home Sponsor of 43 homes.

These latest four homes, located in the Collier City community of Pompano Beach, mark the first of 12 homes Habitat Broward will dedicate in the area as the organization strives to tackle Broward’s affordable housing crisis.

“At JM Family, we believe passionately in the importance of giving back to our community and we can’t think of a better way to do that than to help hardworking families achieve the dream of homeownership,” said Brent Burns, president and CEO of JM Family, at the dedication ceremony. “Although JM Family associates help to truss, roof, paint and landscape these structures, it is the deserving families working side-by-side with our volunteers and Habitat Broward staff who turn these houses into homes.”

In addition to the hard-earned and long-anticipated house keys, at the close of the ceremony JM Family also gifted each homeowner with a brand-new washer and dryer and a basket of supplies.

“To see CEOs and people who have already worked a 40-hour week come in and help me — they don’t know me from a can of paint, but they came and helped me,” said a grateful Meondae Stanley, who, along with his wife and two sons, will be moving from a one-bedroom apartment to their four-bedroom, two-bath home in Collier City. “We come in as good individuals and good citizens and work to make this a better place and a better environment.”

Since 2002, JM Family associates have invested more than 20,000 hours into Habitat for Humanity projects throughout Broward County. In addition to the 43 homes sponsored by the company, Brent Burns has also co-chaired Habitat Broward’s annual CEO Build for the past three years.

“We appreciate our partners at JM Family and the City of Pompano Beach, as together we are lifting families and a community,” said Nancy Robin, CEO and executive director, Habitat for Humanity of Broward. “Not only does this step mean economic empowerment, it also means better health, better educational outcomes, less stress, more security and a better community for all.”
