On October 8th, 2015, the Cohen Seglias team, consisting of Marian Kornilowicz, Jackson Nichols, Gary Repke, Ken Mascaro, Joseph DuBray, Olivia Paris- Kornilowicz, Stacy Wert, Cheryl Urmy, and Celena Barnes, joined Habitat for Humanity Philadelphia in its mission of creating safe, sustainable, and affordable housing in Philadelphia. Our team returned to the site in Southwest Philadelphia where the firm had worked in May and brought the homes one step closer to completion. The team worked hard throughout the day, preparing the space for framing, building the interior framework, and demolishing tile and concrete floors. At Cohen Seglias, we are committed to Habitat’s mission and look forward to a continuing our partnership to Build-to-Succeed.
About Habitat for Humanity International
Habitat for Humanity International’s vision is a world where everyone has a decent place to live. Anchored by the conviction that housing provides a critical foundation for breaking the cycle of poverty, Habitat has helped more than 4 million people construct, rehabilitate or preserve homes since 1976. Habitat also advocates to improve access to decent and affordable shelter and supports a variety of funding models that enable families with limited resources to make needed improvements on their homes as their time and resources allow. As a nonprofit housing organization, Habitat works in more than 70 countries and welcomes people of all races, religions, and nationalities to partner in its mission.
