MAXIMUS and our employees donated more than $15,000 to Habitat for Humanity, to aid disaster relief efforts in the Midwest region of the United States.
The MAXIMUS Foundation contribution will assist Habitat for Humanity’s disaster response program to provide shelter assistance, education, training and partnerships to those affected by the recent severe weather in Texas, Kansas, Nebraska and Oklahoma. Thousands of homes were destroyed and many more were damaged as a result of torrential rainfall, flooding and tornadoes. Habitat for Humanity has responded to major disasters across the world, including Hurricane Katrina in 2005, Haiti’s earthquake in 2010 and Hurricane Sandy in 2012.
Founded in 1976, Habitat for Humanity is devoted to helping provide housing to individuals and families across the world resulting from natural disaster, poverty, war and civil unrest. Habitat for Humanity uses donations to build and repair houses in cooperation with dedicated volunteer builders. The organization has impacted the lives of more than four million people, through the rehabilitation and construction of more than 800,000 homes with plans to surpass one million by the end of 2015.
The philanthropic activities of the MAXIMUS Foundation, such as company-wide relief assistance efforts, reflect the caring nature of the MAXIMUS workforce. Our employees are a noteworthy component of our corporate culture, and ensure that MAXIMUS continues to support the global community. Thank you for your continued support; together we make a true impact in our communities.
