Most people know that Habitat for Humanity brings people together to build homes, communities and hope. Habitat has been helping families become homeowners and stable community members for more than 40 years – and today has more than 1,000 affiliates in communities across the country.
For over 16 years, Duke Realty has helped Greater Indy Habitat for Humanity locally by serving as a build sponsor for one or more homes each year. As a build sponsor, Duke Realty’s construction team—as well as volunteers from our subcontractors—perform the necessary work and provide volunteer site supervision to ensure the homes we help construct are code-compliant and of high quality.
In 2020, Duke Realty will complete our 25th Habitat home as a build sponsor. As our vice president of construction operations, Brent Stutzman, puts it, “The homeowner dedication day is a very special day. It’s the day that brings you back the next year.” Brent would know—since he’s led Duke Realty’s build supervision efforts on every one of those 25 homes.
Thanks to all the Duke Realty volunteers and partners who have helped Habitat for Humanity make our community brighter and stronger. Here’s to 25 more homes—and counting.
