Simpson Strong-Tie, the leader in engineered structural connectors and building solutions, announced it has renewed its support of Habitat for Humanity’s Habitat Strong program. Simpson Strong-Tie remains the leading sponsor of the program.
Habitat Strong is designed to promote the building of homes that are more durable, resilient and physically stronger. Habitat homes in areas susceptible to flooding, earthquakes, hurricanes, high winds and wildfires can benefit from Habitat Strong building standards, which include a suite of fortified codes and best practices developed specifically to make homes more resilient in the face of natural disasters or severe weather. Available to all local Habitat organizations across the country, the Habitat Strong program was created to offer Habitat for Humanity homeowners long-lasting safety benefits at affordable costs.
Simpson Strong-Tie increased its monetary contribution to the program from $85,000 in 2015 to $150,000 in 2017 and now to $200,000 in 2019. The company has donated a total of $600,000 to the program.
“The value of the Habitat Strong program in helping Habitat for Humanity affiliates build to code-plus is tremendous,” said Simpson Strong-Tie COO Ricardo Arevalo. “This program can save lives and structures, and we are thankful for the opportunity to continue to support such an important initiative.”
