Taking Time Out To Help Others
At Combined Technologies we find time to assist those in need through community service. Recently, our Dallas / Ft. Worth office, headed up by Tod Ramirez, spent the day working with Habitat For Humanity. Founded in 1976 by Millard and Linda Fuller, Habitat for Humanity International has built more than 500,000 quality, affordable homes and has served over 2.5 million people worldwide.
Tod and his wife Tracie give back to the community with a sense of pride and spent the day working with others to help out. While the day progressed they discovered a sense of connection to less fortunate people and what it means to assist those who are in real need of a place to call home.
Crew working on a home with Habitat For Humanity
Habitat for Humanity volunteers, working hand-in-hand with the families they serve, build quality, affordable homes using donations of money and materials. Partner families, as our homebuyers are known, invest hundreds of hours of sweat equity in the construction of their homes. Once completed, they buy their homes, making monthly payments on an interest-free mortgage. Their house payments revolve back into Habitat’s work; a dollar invested in Habitat is a buck that never stops — it just keeps building.
With more than 1,500 U.S. affiliates and 550 international affiliates coordinating Habitat house-building projects in over 3,000 communities around the world, Habitat has attracted millions of volunteers, from U.S. presidents to such celebrities as Cher, Reba McIntire and Oprah, to name a few.
Fort Worth Area Habitat for Humanity, Inc. was founded in 1989 as an affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International, serving Fort Worth and Tarrant County. In 2006, the name was changed to Trinity Habitat for Humanity to include the four counties we now serve. Having grown from a handful of dedicated founders into a volunteer corps of thousands, today Trinity Habitat for Humanity is ranked #20 out of 1,571 Habitat affiliates in the nation in new home production.
Tod and Tracie Ramirez
Trinity Habitat for Humanity builds and rehabs homes in Johnson, Parker, Tarrant and Wise Counties.
When the day finished, both Tod and Tracie garnered a stronger understanding of a community effort and felt a sense of accomplishment. They are looking forward to helping again in such a worthwhile cause.
Combined Technologies is proud of their effort and commends them for their giving to their community.
