A word from our CEO, Tim Wilson:
Today, on June 19th, communities across the country are taking time to reflect and honor Juneteenth. For those who do not know, Juneteenth recognizes June 19, 1865, when Union Major General Gordon Granger read the federal orders that stated all enslaved people in Texas were free. With it, a day to celebrate the emancipation of the last remaining enslaved African Americans in the United States was established.
Each company, organization and individual will honor today in different ways. We feel it’s important for us not only to reflect on Juneteenth’s historic importance, but also to embrace our opportunity to look forward and determine how we can be part of a more positive future.
While some companies have elected to honor Juneteenth by making it a company holiday, we are in the position of having hundreds of homeowners who are counting on us to help make their dreams of homeownership come true today.
While we are unable to make today an official company holiday, Prosperity will be honoring Juneteenth by making donations equal to the cost of providing a paid company holiday. Our donation will be divided and sent to various urban organizations, HUD Counselors, Habitat for Humanity Chapters, and other homeownership focused partners across the United States whose missions align with our own.
It’s important to understand that our contributions are not a one-time event. Prosperity has been investing in our communities for years and will continue to invest in the years to come. We are building deeper relationships with organizations we have partnered with in the past and establishing new partnerships with organizations that share our common objective of promoting fair and equitable housing for all communities and people.
It is our daily mission to provide homeownership opportunities to all members of our wonderful and diverse communities.Share:
