Building a better future

In Partnership with the AIA

ProjectNYC partner TBD

 

Thank you for being part of AEC Cares projectOrlando!

This year, AEC Cares joined forces with the Coalition for the Homeless of Central Florida to renovate its Center for Women and Families. We brought together more than 100 volunteers, who were in town for the annual Conference on Architecture 2017, to create a warmer and brighter space for homeless women and families. With the help of our sponsors, donors and volunteers, we were able to provide approximately $325,000 worth of much-needed renovations to the Center.

Our seventh annual blitz build, “projectOrlando,” took place on April 26, 2017, the day before the Conference on Architecture 2017 in Orlando.


What is AEC Cares?

AEC Cares is about linking architecture and construction professionals to the communities where we live and work. Every year, on the day before the Conference on Architecture, we bring together ConstructConnect, the AIA and Hanley Wood, leading manufacturers, generous sponsors and volunteers from across the U.S. for a project that helps the host community.

The renovation of the Coalition’s Center for Women and Families offers a chance to bring positive changes to the homeless community. Since 1987, the Coalition has provided temporary residence and comprehensive services to help its clients’ economic and housing stability.

One of the few emergency shelters in the area that accepts intact families, the Coalition provides shelter, nutritious meals, and helps their clients develop a plan for self-sufficiency.
