Progress at Habitat for Humanity’s Latona Street project took a leap forward when C&R Building Supply and Andersen Windows committed to providing windows for the four-home site. The twin homes feature more than 40 Andersen® 200 Series double-hung windows with Low-E insulating glass.
The windows will help keep energy bills lower year-round and are part of the energy efficiency features Habitat commits to in building affordable housing which contributes to the affordability and overall strategic plan of Habitat for Humanity.
Andersen donated the windows for one of the buildings as well as the Andersen exterior trim for the entire project.
One of the units is Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) compliant; the fifth such home built by Habitat’s Philadelphia affiliate in its 26-year history. The ADA-compliant home will be welcome relief to Anna Johnson, a single mom caring for a daughter with cerebral palsy, who currently rents a second-floor apartment in a building with no elevator. Anna must carry her daughter up and down the stairs, sometimes several times a day.
The Habitat homes are expected to be dedicated in November 2011, just in time for the holidays.
The longstanding alliance between Habitat for Humanity and Andersen Corporation is one way we support the communities where we live and work.
