The Central Oklahoma Home Builders Association continues to make a difference for Oklahoma families impacted by the devastating tornadoes that struck the area in May.
Proving that home builders are a trusted resource in the massive recovery effort, the COHBA raised more than $70,000 and assisted more than 130 families who lost homes or other property. An additional 15 families will soon receive their disbursements as well.
Other COHBA news:
The 2013 Parade of Homes featured 117 homes and seven featured developments during the annual event. Carolyn Schulter built the 2013 House of Hope. Proceeds from the home went to the Oklahoma Home Builders Foundation to provide funds for children's Christmas. Once again this year, the Foundation is providing Christmas gifts for children involved with the Cavett Foundation and Children's Hospital.
COHBA has made education for members a top priority in 2013, and has added a new page to support the initiative on its website at www.cohba.org. The Upcoming Education page features a calendar of upcoming educational opportunities, including dates, topics, speakers, locations and costs.
