Genisys Credit Union joined Habitat for Humanity for the first Women’s Build

AUBURN HILLS, MI (October 21, 2014) – Genisys Credit Union, which provides services to anyone who lives or works in the Lower Peninsula, was proud to sponsor and join Habitat for Humanity of Oakland County for their Women’s Build project this past week.

“They had a great time working together to provide a member of our community with a safe and livable home,” said Jackie Buchanan, President/CEO. “It’s always rewarding to know that we’ve helped make a difference in someone’s life.”

Together, Habitat for Humanity and Genisys Credit Union worked to provide a home to a local couple looking to make a fresh start. Future homeowner, Cynthia, has faced Cerebral Palsy, non-progressive movement disorder that causes physical disability, since birth. Due to medical bills and other unfortunate circumstances it has been challenging for Cynthia and her fiancé, Dennis, to afford a barrier free home.

“This Women Build project has been very exciting for Habitat for Humanity of Oakland County as we not only utilized women for 90% of the work done on the home, but also built the home to be ADA compliant to accommodate Cindy’s needs, who has cerebral palsy and uses a scooter,” stated Kim Howard Manager of Partnerships for Habitat for Humanity of Oakland County. “For the first time in her life she will be able to enter and move about freely in her home. This was a first for us, and the support we received from our sponsors, like Genisys Credit Union, helped us make this dream come true for Cindy and Dennis.”

Genisys volunteers helped with a variety of home-building needs including the cutting and installation of molding for all of the rooms as well as painting various areas of the house.
