On Thursday, July 18, Giveback Homes, Habitat for Humanity, and The Agency will be onsite in Culver City from 8 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. for Giveback Homes’ 6th Build Day to build a home for 10 families in the greater Los Angeles area, including the Mulvihill family. Kaoru Mulvihill is mother to three young sons, one who uses a wheelchair. This event will enable the family to have access to a wheelchair accessible home in their hometown.
The homes on Globe Avenue have ben taking shape with help from many volunteer organizations, and
Giveback Homes, the social good movement in real estate, has partnered with Habitat for Humanity since 2015, raising over a hundred thousand dollars in funding and engaging hundreds of volunteers to help build affordable housing. This Culver City build marks the sixth build day with The Agency, the premier brokerage partnership with Giveback Homes, and the 81st U.S. Build Day overall for Giveback Homes.
For this event, 20 volunteers from Giveback Homes and The Agency, including The Agency’s Founder and CEO Mauricio Umansky, will help build new homes for 10 families.
One of these families is the Mulvihill family. Kaoru Mulvihill has three young sons, Trenton, 21; Mason, 18; and Kendall, 16, and they reside in an apartment in Culver City. Due to his birth as a “micro-preemie,” Kendall has met numerous physical challenges and uses a wheelchair. Their current residence lacks wheelchair accessibility. This, along with steadily increasing rent, has led Kaoru to apply for a Habitat for Humanity of Greater Los Angeles (Habitat LA) home.
“The feeling of seeing so many people who don’t know you come out to help build your home is pure love and a wonderfully surreal experience,” said Kaoru.
