If you’re familiar with Houwzer, you know “giving back” is in our DNA; as a certified B Corporation, it’s literally part of our business model. In addition to every employee spending 50 hours volunteering each year, the company collaboratively selects an annual charity to receive a substantial donation: 2.5% of our profits. This year, we are pleased to announce that Houwzer’s 2017 non-profit partner is the Center for Families and Relationships!

Located in Northeast Philadelphia, the Center for Families and Relationships is the only Philadelphia nonprofit where all of the counselors are specifically trained in marriage and family therapy. From individual therapy for issues such as depression and eating disorders to family counseling, CFAR’s dedicated staff helps 375 families across the region each week.

While our team pitched many incredible organizations for consideration this year, CFAR is especially meaningful to Houwzer - in part because our own Andrew Gray is a former CFAR therapist.

“I can speak to the positive impact the organization makes on the lives of others and the community as a whole,” he told us. “I had many opportunities to witness strength and resilience first-hand through my role as a therapist, which helped me grow and see the world more dynamically.”  

Great thanks to Andrew for connecting us with this incredible organization; we are honored to support their work serving Philadelphia’s families!
