2017 Habitat for Humanity Philadelphia Building HOPE Luncheon

May 15, 2017

On May 4th, Cohen Seglias kicked off its 2017 partnership with Habitat for Humanity at their annual Building HOPE Luncheon as a Block Builder sponsor. This year's Luncheon successfully raised a record breaking amount of $420,823 to keep Habitat working toward a Philadelphia where everyone has a decent place to live.

The Firm is commited to Habitat's mission of creating safe, sustainable, and affordable housing with and for families in need. Through our Block Builder sponsorship and two volunteer days where Cohen Seglias attorneys, staff, and clients work together at the build sites, Cohen Seglias is helping Habitat achieve this shared goal.
