How we help build homes … and dreams

Discover how associates teamed up to make one family’s dream home a reality.

For more than 20 years, Raymond James has volunteered with Habitat for Humanity chapters across the country to help more than 40 families have a house to call a home.

The build

In 2018, we celebrated our eighth firm-sponsored build with Habitat for Humanity Pinellas.

Over seven weeks, more than 200 volunteers put in nearly 1,500 hours to carry out tasks like laying foundation and flooring, building walls, installing windows and cabinets, landscaping, and more. And they did so with the Umberger family in mind.

“It’s a safe place to call home,” said Marissa Umberger, single mother of three. Watch the video below to hear her story, and see how our associates rooted for them along the way.
