Building More Than Homes
Building a community is much more than just constructing the buildings. It's about caring, being involved, and doing right by your neighbors. With that in mind, Halen Homes is committed to making our communities and the people who live in them the best they can be. Every year Halen and its employees work together to make our community stronger through volunteering, sponsorship and advocacy, fundraising, board service, and donations. It's our delight and our privilege to be able to build up our community as we build its homes.
Healthy Employees, Healthy Community
As part of the Neumann Family of Companies, Halen Homes participates in Fit for a Cause, a wellness program that generates funds for local charities.
Each month, employees track their physical activity, with each activity equating to a certain dollar amount. At the end of the month, the logs are calculated and dollars are donated to a charity that Halen employees have nominated.
Last year alone, we donated thousands of dollars to local charities through the Fit for a Cause program.
Charities We Support
Camp Hometown Heroes
Camp Hometown Heroes is a free week-long overnight summer camp for children and siblings of fallen U.S. Service Members who have died in any manner – combat, accidents, suicide, illness, or any manner of death. During their visit to camp, the children begin the healing process with other children who have experienced a similar loss, doing summer activities they love.
The camp is specifically designed to provide children ages 7-17 with opportunities for friendship, fun, acceptance, and personal growth. Through the support of pediatric grief specialists, campers are provided the chance to grieve and heal. Camp Hometown Heroes is provided free of charge to all children who attend.
