The Mission Housing Development Corporation fall fundraising event is already on track to be a major success.
Nibbi Brothers General Contractors has become the Developer level sponsor, contributing $15,000 to the Mission Housing Tenant Health and Wellness Fund.
“The values of Mission Housing Development Corporation – especially their commitment to Community, Integrity and Quality – resonate deeply with our own values and culture.” said Bob Nibbi, President of Nibbi Brothers General Contractors.
“Having worked with together for over 25 years, we are delighted to support Mission Housing’s mission to improve the lives of all San Franciscans through building and maintaining affordable housing.”
Stepping into the Builder level sponsorship with a $10,000 donation to the Mission Housing Tenant Health and Wellness Fund, is Caritas Management Corporation.
“As part of a 35 year relationship with Mission Housing Development Corporation, we are honored to share the same vision of preserving affordable housing, creating stability and enriching lives,” said Devesh Patel, President of Caritas Management Corporation.
“We are very proud of what Mission Housing has provided not only to the Mission District but in the beautiful city of San Francisco as a whole.”
The theme of the event, “46 Years of Building Safe, Empowered, and Resilient Communities” will be the basis for storytelling about Mission Housing residents who’ve recovered from adversity because of the affordable housing and supportive services they received.
