A. CASPERSEN COMPANY INC. TEAMS UP WITH NONPROFIT TO PROVIDE HOUSING FOR HOMELESS FAMILIES IN AKRON
A. Caspersen Company Inc. recently had the honor of partnering with the nonprofit organization Gennesaret to convert a vacant property in Akron into a safe and comfortable home for (up-to) four homeless families. Gennesaret is an all-volunteer nonprofit corporation that is a unique provider of long-term housing for homeless two-parent families in Summit County. Our focus for this project was the exterior of the home, which included replacing siding and minor roofing repairs.
We were grateful to receive sponsorship from Alside for the siding materials and ABC Supply for the roofing materials. We replaced the rotted wood siding (as needed), and installed foam underlayment for added insulation benefits. We installed gorgeous Alside Odyssey vinyl siding, which provides a lifetime warranty and maintenance-free solution the home. This allowed us to replace the old, worn-out siding with gorgeous Alside Odyssey vinyl siding, the new siding not only looks beautiful, but it also provides energy efficiency and long-term durability. We replaced the roofing on the front dormer and did repairs on the flat roof.
The project was especially meaningful to us, as we believe in supporting our community and giving back in any way we can. Chelsea Caspersen, the owner of A. Caspersen Company, said,
“As a family-owned and community-focused company, we were thrilled to partner with Gennesaret to provide safe and comfortable housing for those in need. It’s projects like these that remind us why we do what we do.”
We’re proud to have been a part of this project and to have worked with Gennesaret to make a difference in the lives of families in Akron. We believe that everyone deserves a safe and secure place to call home, and we’re honored to have been able to help make that a reality.
