CEA Habitat for Humanity Project
CEA Habitat for Humanity Welcome Home Dedication Ceremony
In this Welcome Home video, a Cleveland family’s dream of a safe place to call home was realized thanks to the generous support of the 63 CEA (Construction Employers Assocation) contractors, CBCTC (Cleveland Building and Construction Trade Council) partners, and numerous affiliates who came together as financial sponsors or by contributing materials and labor to support CEA’s Habitat for Humanity project.
With over $250,000 in financial and in-kind donations the dream became a reality. Sierra and her family were beyond words and full of gratitude as they toured their new home for the first time as those involved gathered to witness and celebrate this unforgettable, life-changing project. Thank you to The Greater Cleveland Habitat for Humanity Organization and their partners for the incredible work their organization does in our community. The Greater Cleveland Habitat for Humanity brings people together from all walks of life to build homes, community, and hope.
CEA is grateful to those who made this possible through sponsorship and donations. None of this would have been possible without the generosity of:
