Houston, TX. (October 18, 2023) – At Habitat for Humanity Northwest Harris County, we firmly believe that partnerships are the cornerstones of transformative change. When esteemed corporate entities like Wells Fargo join hands with us, the impact on our mission to provide affordable housing for those in need is nothing short of remarkable. In this article, we celebrate the valuable collaboration between Wells Fargo and Habitat for Humanity Northwest Harris County, where employees rolled up their sleeves to build homes and create lasting change within the community.
For the past 27 years, Wells Fargo has worked with Habitat for Humanity to help families build strong, stable homes and communities. In 2020, the Wells Fargo Foundation donated $7.75 million through its Wells Fargo Builds program to help 350 families repair or build homes in nearly all 50 states.
