The Realtor-Community Housing Foundation has donated $100,000 to local nonprofits. Lexington Habitat for Humanity received $50,000 for its Love Your Neighborhood program, which focuses on revitalization in low-income neighborhoods through owner-occupied home repairs. REACH Inc. received $50,000 for emergency repairs for existing homes for low- to moderate-income families and individuals.

Repairs will include water heaters, plumbing and roofs in the 22-county jurisdiction of the Lexington-Bluegrass Association of Realtors. Both organizations align with the Realtor-Community Housing Foundation’s goal to empower families and strengthen neighborhoods by assisting homeowners in need so they can stay in their homes.
