Homelessness is a circumstance, not an identity
During this time of year, we tend to spend a little more time reflecting on what we're grateful for and how we can give back.
Shelters to Shutters (S2S) is a nonprofit organization that Buyers Access takes pride in supporting. S2S works tirelessly to help transition individuals and families out of homelessness to economic self-sufficiency by educating and engaging the real estate industry to provide employment and housing opportunities.
A true, long-term solution for ending situational homelessness
Shelters to Shutters (S2S), pre-screens and vets candidates who are either experiencing homelessness or at risk of becoming homeless. They match participants with the skills and experience to be successful in property management with their nationwide apartment industry partners, who provide entry-level employment and discounted on-site housing. S2S then provides career mentoring for a full year to ensure their pathway to self-sufficiency.
The S2S model is beneficial for all: Participants become economically independent and experience an improved quality of life. Their partners have access to a pipeline of motivated employees excited for a career in the apartment industry. Their communities improve in overall health and well-being.
If you are ready to be inspired, think about what we can do with your support. Shelters to Shutters is changing not only the lives of the potential candidates, but the lives of their families as well. We can all make an impact!
