May 9, 2014

Cohen Seglias shares Habitat’s commitment to eliminating poverty housing through building safe, sustainable, and affordable homes in partnership with low income families. The Firm is donating $10,000.00 as well as two volunteer build days when Cohen Seglias attorneys, staff, and clients will work together to help families achieve the dream of homeownership.

Building HOPE luncheon

The Firm celebrated its year of service with other Habitat supporters and leaders from across the region at the May 8th Building HOPE luncheon. The event marked the luncheon’s fifth anniversary with over $1 million raised for Philadelphia affordable housing. The Building HOPE luncheon is Habitat’s largest annual fundraising event and the funds raised are critical to Habitat's mission. This year’s luncheon raised $301,400.00.

“The Firm is excited to be part of Habitat’s great work which is all about thinking globally and acting locally,” said Jason Copley, Managing Partner of Cohen Seglias. “We are all looking forward to helping Habitat for Humanity Build to Succeed throughout the year.”
