Verifi Observes Quarterly Service Pledge
LOS ANGELES, CA (May 24, 2016) – Staff members from Los Angeles-based Verifi, Inc., the leading provider of payment and risk management solutions for card-not-present merchants, recently spent three days on-site with Habitat for Humanity of Greater Los Angeles to help build homes at the Hyde Park build site in Inglewood.
15-20 Verifi employees from the Los Angeles office volunteered each day of the April 20-22 project, while staff members of the Las Vegas office will be doing the same on May 10th and 11th with their local chapter.
The effort marks Verifi’s Quarterly Service pledge, during which employees donate their time and effort to one of Los Angeles’ and Las Vegas’ most respected community-based organizations. The Verifi team previously volunteered their time and efforts to LA’s Downtown Women’s Center and Las Vegas based Three Square. In addition to employee time, Verifi donates funds to the day-to-day operations of these important organizations.
“We are honored to work with Habitat LA to, literally, help build a new life for deserving families,” said Matthew Katz, CEO of Verifi. “The work they do to provide not only shelter, but stability and pride with their affordable home ownership programs is not only a gift to the recipients, but to those us allowed to assist with this mission.”
With the support of community partners, donors and volunteers, Habitat LA constructs new or renovates existing homes alongside Habitat Partner Homebuyers. In addition to a down payment and monthly mortgage payments, homeowners invest Sweat Equity hours building their future Habitat home and the homes of other Habitat Homebuyers. Habitat homes are sold to Partner Homebuyers at no profit and financed with affordable loans.
Since 1990, the chapter has built, rehabilitated and repaired more than 600 houses in neighborhoods all across greater Los Angeles. Shelter is a basic human need and Habitat for Humanity strives to achieve its goal of eliminating substandard housing by making decent, sustainable and affordable housing a reality for all.
