Sharing our mission with future leaders

We were thankful to speak to the participants of Associated Builders and Contractors Central Florida Chapter's NEXGEN Leadership Training Program about Habitat for Humanity's mission. It was great to share the day with representatives of companies such as Gilbane, PCL and Mader Southeast. These companies lead the way in community engagement and social responsibility.
