Community news

Habitat For Humanity of Chester County

Arkema’s Exton, PA and West Chester, PA site employees volunteered at Habitat For Humanity of Chester County, a non-profit organization helping to bring families together by building homes and communities. Each home that is built is sold to a low-income family based on the three following criteria: ability to repay the loan, the need for affordable housing and willingness to participate in the sweat equality program. All mortgage payments are put towards the rehabilitation or construction of other homes for low-income families. Almost 140 homes have been built in the Chester County area alone since 1989.
