ATLANTA and JEFFERSON VALLEY, NY (March 16, 2017) Joining forces to create access to affordable housing, The Blue Book Building and Construction Network has signed on as a national partner with Habitat for Humanity to help families build strength, stability, and self-reliance through shelter.
"This partnership is a perfect fit, as our two organizations work together for the good of our local communities and our industry,” said Rich Johnson, President. “Everyone deserves the security of a decent place to live, and we are proud to partner with Habitat for Humanity to make that possible. We look forward to helping Habitat get access to the information and people they need to achieve their goals, by providing opportunities to build relationships at our local Who’s Who Showcases as well as through exposure in our regional publications."
With over a century of experience in the construction industry and a national network of construction professionals, The Blue Book Network’s mission is to empower the construction community to connect, collaborate and grow by building more profitable relationships and providing resources and opportunities. Like Habitat, The Blue Book Network also has a local presence in many areas across the United States and is connected and involved with local neighborhoods.

"Because of this partnership, Habitat will have the opportunity to engage with construction professionals across the country, helping us build our network and increase our ability to serve more families in need of decent, affordable shelter."
About Habitat for Humanity
Driven by the vision that everyone needs a decent place to live, Habitat for Humanity began in 1976 as a grassroots effort on a community farm in southern Georgia. The Christian housing organization has since grown to become a leading global nonprofit working in nearly 1,400 communities throughout the U.S. and in more than 70 countries. Families and individuals in need of a hand up partner with Habitat for Humanity to build or improve a place they can call home. Habitat homeowners help build their own homes alongside volunteers and pay an affordable mortgage. Through financial support, volunteering or adding a voice to support affordable housing, everyone can help families achieve the strength, stability and self-reliance they need to build better lives for themselves. Through shelter, we empower. To learn more, visit habitat.org.
