For this group of individuals, Christmas is more than providing high-quality housing for families

A graphic of Santa represents giving back to the communities we've helped develop

At Benchmark, our purpose is much more than providing high-quality housing – we feel our responsibility goes far beyond the four walls that our homeowners live in. We feel that giving back to the community is vital in creating a safe and prosperous environment. We strive to inspire others to do the same, too, which is why we hosted our Benchmark Gives Back fundraiser last Christmas!

Okay…we know…we’re a little late sharing this update with you, but, who doesn’t love the warm and fuzzy feelings that Christmas brings?! We’re just bringing Christmas to you a little early this year, in spring!

Thank YOU for your support for our 2017 Benchmark Gives Back fundraiser. Here’s a little trip down memory lane…
