CHICAGO, Nov. 18, 2016 /PRNewswire-HISPANIC PR WIRE/ -- Moen Incorporated, the #1 faucet brand in North America (www.moen.com) today announced that it will assist Hispanic Housing Development Corporation (www.hispanichousingdevelopment.com) in its 41-year mission to provide affordable housing for residents in Chicago. Moen has been a contributing partner with HHDC since 2007.
Through Alcanzando Sueños con Moen (ASCM), ("Achieving Dreams with Moen"), Moen will donate state-of-the-art and water-saving kitchen and bathroom fixtures for 150 units at Damen Courts Apartments acquired by HHDC in 2015. The acquisition provided HHDC an opportunity to preserve an important affordable housing asset in the community. Located in Chicago's North West Side, the property is surrounded by numerous economic anchors and amenities including the Illinois Medical District, the CTA Blue line, and a recently developed 66,000 square foot grocery-anchored shopping center, the first of its kind to be developed in the area in decades. The ASCM program will help lower the costs associated with the preservation and upgrade of the property.
Moen spokesperson Joe Ramirez said, "We are honored to be able to expand our relationship with HHDC as they continue to serve low-income families throughout the Hispanic and minority communities."
The Alcanzando Sueños con Moen program was launched by Moen Incorporated in 2007 in collaboration with Hispanic Housing Development Corporation, a major nonprofit builder of affordable homes in Chicago. Through its program, Moen contributes products annually to affordable housing projects serving predominantly Hispanic communities around the country, including major markets such as Florida, CA., New York, Illinois, Arizona, and Texas.
