Continuing their past commitment, on February 28, 2009, fourteen members of SettlePou volunteered their time and carpentry skills to assist with the Dallas Bar Association’s 2009 Habitat for Humanity Home Project. The Dallas Bar Association Home Project is building its 18th Dallas Area Habitat for Humanity home, having already helped 17 families in the Dallas community realize their dreams of home ownership. The Dallas Bar Association Home Project is the longest-running whole-house sponsor for the Dallas Area Habitat for Humanity. This year’s Dallas Bar Association Home Project is co-chaired by SettlePou shareholder, Scott Conrad.
For 18 years, the Dallas Bar Association has partnered with the Dallas Area Habitat for Humanity to sponsor and build a new home for an area family. The Dallas Bar Association Home Project brings together attorneys, legal assistants, judges, court reporters, and others in the legal community who volunteer their time, money and sweat to construct this home. At the conclusion of the build, the Home Project awards its “Hard Hats” to those members of the Dallas legal community who most supported the fundraising efforts of the DBA Home Project Committee and the Community Involvement Committee for the 2008 home. SettlePou was honored to be awarded a Gold Hard Hat Award for its contribution to the 2008 build, which included sponsoring a full day build with 14 SettlePou employees.
