Starkey Mortgage, a nationally recognized residential mortgage company, presented a $1000 check through Starkey Mortgage’s Community Connection program to HomeAid Atlanta during the Greater Atlanta Home Builders Association’s Installation and Awards Program.

Starkey’s Community Connection program provides a way for the company to contribute to charitable organizations in the communities it serves. All non-profit and not-for-profit groups that have a current 501(c)(3) status are eligible. These groups can be local, national or international and can include youth, school, education, health, environmental and animal programs.

“Our team is excited to support HomeAid Atlanta’s Closing Campaign program. We believe this will be the first of many donations to assist HomeAid in building new lives for Atlanta's homeless families and individuals,” said Ken Witte, Atlanta Central branch manager at Starkey Mortgage. “The Greater Atlanta community is very supportive of Starkey Mortgage and this is a way we can give back to those in our community who are in need.”

CORE Homebuilders has also committed to match any donations the Starkey Mortgage Community Connection program makes to HomeAid Atlanta on a monthly basis. Mandy Crater, executive director of HomeAid Atlanta said, “We are thankful for Starkey Mortgage’s and CORE Homebuilder’s ongoing commitment to HomeAid Atlanta and our cause to help the estimated 7,500 people in Metro Atlanta experiencing homelessness on any given night, 40 percent who are women and children.”
