RAHB says it is reaching out to its members and the communities it serves to raise awareness and guarantee that a variety of charities benefit from the grant each year.

“All strong communities have one thing in common – the ability to band together and help those in need,” says Donna Bacher, RAHB president. “RAHB is passionate about providing housing opportunities and building better communities and this grant facilitates both of these quality of life principles.”
