First American Home Warranty (FAHW) is among the leading home warranty providers in the nation. It is a subsidiary of First American Financial Corporation and it will join HomeAid America to fight against homelessness in America.
Speaking on the occasion, Tracy Berger, Senior Vice President at FAHW said, “We’re proud to support HomeAid America’s efforts to end homelessness in the United States and believe that First American Home Warranty and our employees can play an important role.”
Adding to this, she expressed, “We share the same philosophy of giving back to the communities we serve and look forward to participating in HomeAid’s local outreach opportunities and contributing to the positive impact they provide.” Tracy would be joining HomeAid America’s Board of Directors.
HomeAid is one of America’s biggest providers of housing and resources for the homeless. With First American Home Warranty’s support, they will help rebuild the lives of America’s homeless. This is made possible using HomeAid’s housing development and community outreach programs.
The HomeAid program identifies charities working to help the homeless who are in need of additional facilities that help put a roof over people’s heads. HomeAid’s builders along with their partners and suppliers take on these projects. Then they complete it at deep discounts through in-kind donations of their time and materials. These cost savings are then reinvested into programs like jobs and life-skills training, emotional support and financial counseling.
With support from First American Home Warranty, HomeAid would now work towards completing over 560 projects which houses more than 335,000 people. HomeAid has spent over $230 million in housing with cost savings of over $120 million.
Talking about this development, Peter Simons, CEO of HomeAid America said, “We are so excited and humbled to have First American Home Warranty join HomeAid as a national partner. It shows just how committed and passionate they are about helping the communities where they operate, and it will benefit HomeAid as we enter our 30th year of fighting homelessness in the country. The addition of Tracy Berger to our board of directors is an added bonus, as her insight and leadership will greatly benefit the organization in the years ahead.”
