Everyone deserves a decent place to live.
No matter who we are or where we come from, we all deserve to have a decent life, to feel strength and stability day after day, and to know we have the power to take care of ourselves and our children. We support
Manatee Habitat for Humanity in their mission to build strength, stability and self-reliance through shelter.
Blalock Walters sponsored the Manatee Habitat for Humanity International Women’s Day luncheon at The Grove in Lakewood Ranch. International Women’s Day celebrates the economic, political and social
achievements of women past, present and future. This special event highlighted the achievements of empowered women and celebrated their impact on quality of life locally and globally.
The two keynote speakers, Teresa Mast and Yesenia Garcia-Lorenzano, are women of incredible resilience, strength and dedication to the community.
Our support of Manatee Habitat for Humanity continues throughout the year. Our real estate department provides Manatee Habitat assistance with residential property acquisition as well as commercial leasing, and most importantly, facilitating the financing mechanisms and conducting the closing services that enable Habitat for Humanity to provide affordable housing to worthy homeowners.
“Helping new Habitat home buyers receive the keys to a house they’ve always dreamed of owning is incredibly rewarding,” said real estate attorney Greg DeMeuse. “Being involved in the process is personally gratifying and receives great appreciation from Habitat for Humanity and all the participants in their program.”
Additionally, Blalock Walters marketing director Jill McGarry serves on the Habitat for Humanity board of directors and is chair of its marketing committee.
