Charter Homes & Neighborhoods is honored to receive a 2011 National Housing Quality Award – the home building industry’s most coveted honor. For us at Charter Homes, it’s a serious award for serious fun.
What is the National Housing Quality Award?
The NHQA recognizes home builders who demonstrate quality achievement and operational excellence.
When you purchase a Charter Home, you get more than just a roof and four walls. While we’re nationally recognized for the high quality of the homes we build, we’re also known for creating neighborhoods that are friendly, walkable and foster an unequaled sense of community.
The Charter Homes & Neighborhoods team recently completed our annual Day of Caring community outreach day. This year, we helped the Barr Family of Ephrata.
Kelly & Duane Barr were volunteers with COBYS Family Services, an adoption and foster care services. The Barr family has grown since the two were approved as resource parents in November 1998.
Get ready. Get set. PLAY!
