First Impression Ironworks Partners with Habitat for Humanity in Phoenix in “Builds Hope” Program

When you think of a thriving and healthy neighborhood, images of home, family and community come to mind. Of course, lots of things contribute to making up a healthy community. But none more obvious than for each person or family to have a safe and secure place to live.

With his in mind, First Impression Ironworks recently partnered with Habitat for Humanity Central Arizona, an affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International. Habitat is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization that partners with low-income families, local companies, volunteers and sponsors to build, renovate and repair homes.

In fact, the Habitat for Humanity Central Arizona affiliate has built or renovated more than 1100 homes throughout Maricopa County and parts of Pinal County since 1985.

So this past June, as part of First Impression Ironworks’ commitment to contributing First Class Care to our community at large, we launched a program called First Impression Ironworks Builds Hope. In partnership with Habitat for Humanity, we designed, built and installed a custom wrought iron security door for one Valley family, who after a lot of time and hard work was completing their American dream with a Habitat for Humanity home. “We had over 20 volunteers from our company show up at the home of Beza Dubale and her family to install their new security door, work on landscaping and prepare their new home,” said Shannon Peterson, Director of Customer Care at First Impression Ironworks.

The sad truth is that too many residents in Central Arizona don’t have a simple, decent affordable place to live.  Habitat for Humanity programs promote dignity and hope, and that’s at the core of why First Impression Ironworks has partnered with this organization. Children and families thrive in safe and healthy neighborhoods.

“We are completely in support of Habitat for Humanity’s vision of building affordable housing and stronger communities.  We hope to partner with them on many more projects,” said Mark Baraghimian, CEO of First Impression Ironworks.
