Gabor Design Build
At Gabor Design Build, we believe a stronger community benefits everyone and doing our part to make the communities we work in is an important cause we want to contribute to with our time, our talent, and our resources. Every year, our employees give hundreds of hours of volunteer time in their communities and to causes they are passionate about.
In order to build the healthy and safe communities we work closely with, many non-profit organizations deliver vital services to those that need it. In fact, in the areas of health care, housing, and education, our partners have made incredible differences for the lives of thousands of people.
ELMBROOK HUMANE SOCIETY
“We have committed ourselves and our resources to save every animal possible. Our intake and adoption programs have been adapted to be engaging and friendly to animals and potential adopters. We have areas where we can treat animals with contagious diseases so that they have the time to recover without becoming a risk to our shelter animal population, staff, and visitors to our shelter. Our behavior and temperament assessment process gives adopters the best possible information when they are in to meet our animals. We work with adopters to help transition animals into new homes and help them overcome any adjustment issues they encounter. Our foster care program has expanded to help animals with behavior modification or medical needs to be worked with until they can be given the best possible chance for a successful adoption”.
HABITAT FOR HUMANITY
At Habitat for Humanity, we build. We build because we believe that everyone, everywhere, should have a healthy, affordable place to call home. More than building homes, we build communities, we build hope and we build the opportunity for families to help themselves.
As a nonprofit, ecumenical Christian ministry that builds with people in need regardless of race or religion, we welcome volunteers and supporters from all backgrounds.
We have more than 1,500 local affiliates in the United States and more than 70 national organizations around the world. Together, we have helped to build or repair more than 800,000 houses and serve more than 4 million people worldwide.
OZAUKEE YOUTH HOCKEY ASSOCIATION
In 2011, Gabor Design Build became a supporter of the Ozaukee Youth Hockey Association (OYHA) in Cedarburg, WI. The OYHA philosophy is simple. The kids come first. Hockey is a great sport. It will be used to promote teamwork, character, integrity, the value of hard work, honesty, excellence and fun; all things Gabor Design Build believes are important values for our youth.
OYHA is an independent non-profit organization created solely for the purpose to promote youth hockey in the Ozaukee county region. OYHA purchases ice time from Ozaukee Ice Association (OIA) but operates independently from OIA. OYHA is governed by the Wisconsin Amateur Hockey Association (WAHA) and USA Hockey. They are classified as a Division 1 level Club playing in WAHA Region 5. All OYHA Club Teams are entered in regional playoffs to qualify for WAHA State Tournaments held in March.
REBUILDING TOGETHER OF GREATER MILWAUKEE
Great neighborhoods are restored and preserved one home and one deserving homeowner at a time. This is accomplished through the efforts of visionary community leaders, caring and generous companies, and dedicated volunteers and nonprofit organizations like Rebuilding Together Greater Milwaukee.
Rebuilding Together Greater Milwaukee (RTGM) supports much-needed affordable housing and helps homeowners and neighborhoods regain a sense of community pride. We do this by coordinating the volunteers, skilled labor, tools and supplies it takes to renovate, revitalize and renew homes and neighborhoods across the Greater Milwaukee area.
We address the problems of affordable housing for low-income homeowners by revitalizing and preserving their homes. Through the repairs provided by our volunteers, we:
- Repair low-income, owner-occupied housing, enabling older adults, individuals living with disabilities, and veterans to remain in their homes for years to come.
- Address critical safety issues – falls are a leading cause of injury among older adults.
- Stabilize living conditions, allowing our homeowners accessibility and independence.
- Lower household energy bills by weatherizing homes and replacing old appliances with newer, energy efficient models.
