Lennar Atlanta, a division of Lennar (NYSE:LEN), one of the nation’s leading builders of quality homes in the U.S., donated a generous sum of model furniture to local charity Peace Place. Peace Place is a local shelter assisting battered women and their children. Doors to the shelter opened in 2000, since then they’ve helped over 2,200 women, men, and children.
Peace Place’s housing program now includes transitional housing as well as an apartment building, which provides safe accommodations at a reduced rent for one year. In addition to housing, Peace Place also provides coaching, support groups, case management, outreach advocacy, legal advocacy, financial assistance, parenting programs, referrals to other service agencies, and more.
“At Lennar Atlanta, we know our responsibility to our Community is more than building and delivering quality homes,” says Lennar Marketing Manager, Heidi Schneider. “We are responsible for giving back, for doing the right thing for the right reason to better the lives of others. It’s about more than giving money. We give our time and our hearts on a continuing and connected basis to make our Atlanta Community a better place by helping non-profit organizations like Peace Place, Inc achieve their goals.”
Lennar Atlanta often partners with charities in the communities they build in. In addition to Peace Place, Lennar has also partnered with Habitat for Humanity, donating as-new kitchen and bathroom cabinetry for use in six new Habitat homes, effectively lowering the homes’ construction costs by thousands of dollars.
Lennar’s model furniture donation to Peace Place will provide battered women within the program quality items to furnish their new homes. These items will also be utilized in the transitional housing available. Since most survivors of domestic violence suffer financial hardship after leaving their partners, Peace Place provides items and services to help lessen this burden.
Furniture items donated this month include everything from living and family room furniture to kitchen, bedroom and office furniture! Since Lennar regularly upgrades the interior furnishings of their model homes to maintain their modern aesthetic so items donated are of high quality and like new.
