Bank of America presented $20,000 in funding to Habitat in support of efforts to address affordable housing needs
In October, Habitat for Humanity of South Palm Beach County and Bank of America employee volunteers rolled up their sleeves and worked to install irrigation and landscaping on a new home for a Delray Beach family.
The Bank of America volunteers also presented a $20,000 check to Habitat in support of the nonprofit’s efforts to address affordable housing needs.
“A safe and affordable home is fundamental for individuals and families to achieve economic mobility,” said Fabiola Brumley, Palm Beach County Market President, Bank of America. “Partnering with Habitat for Humanity and our employees volunteering are ways we are helping build a more sustainable community in Palm Beach County.”
Ilomane Brivaus, the new homeowner, is a single mother of three who immigrated from Haiti.
“We are proud to take part in this event to build safe, affordable homes that enrich local communities and provide people like Ilomane and her family with a foundation for the next phase of their lives,” Randy Nobles, President & CEO Habitat for Humanity of South Palm Beach County said. “Our longstanding partnership with Bank of America helps further our organization’s mission to create a world where everyone has a decent place to live.”
This new construction project was part of the largest Bank of America Global Build since the initiative launched in 2014 and serves as a celebration of the bank’s 33-year commitment to Habitat for Humanity. Habitat for Humanity of South Palm Beach County was one of more than 108 participating local organizations in 10 countries from Oct. 5-12, helping future homeowners build strength, stability and self-reliance through shelter.

More than 100 leading CEOs and senior-level business leaders left their briefcases behind and stepped out of their comfort zones to “climb a success ladder of a different kind” at Habitat for Humanity of South Palm Beach County’s (HFHSPBC) third annual CEO Build. Demonstrating “Corporate Leadership in Action”, these business powerhouses raised funds, hammers and roof trusses on a safe, decent and affordable home for a local, hard-working, low-income family. In addition to furthering progress on the home for future homebuyer Gretta Ceasar and her family, several worked to revitalize the neighboring Marantha Haitian Evangelical Baptist Church through HFHSPBC’s Neighborhood Revitalization Program presented by Vertical Bridge Holdings. The nonprofit’s “A Brush with Kindness” program re-invests in homes and community assets that are pre-existing in the community.
The annual CEO Build initiative both celebrates and harnesses the unstoppable power of corporate leaders to come together to help transform their community with an inspiring “hand-up, not a hand-out.” No building experience was required as these volunteers
CEO Builders — spanning several industries — worked under the guidance of Habitat construction professionals.
