The HOPE Grant
At AAM, we are not only dedicated to delivering total peace of mind to the communities we manage as a whole, but also to the individual homeowners that make up those communities.
Over the past few years, it has become more and more evident that there is a genuine need for homeowner assistance programs that offer both financial and/or maintenance support to homeowners that have experienced various hardships, such as severe health problems or other extenuating circumstances.
The Arizona Association of Community Managers (AACM), an organization committed to raising the level of community care, has initiated the Homeowners Outreach Program Enterprise (HOPE) Grant. Both AACM members and affiliate partners may nominate qualified homeowners for financial and/or property maintenance assistance.
As a proud and active affiliate of AACM and a longstanding companywide commitment to giving back to the communities in which we serve, AAM’s Community Managers take pride in working closely with their Boards to recognize and acknowledge when particular homeowners are in need of additional assistance.
Recently, AAM Community Manager Stefani Mercado learned that one of her homeowners from a community in Avondale had been diagnosed with a long-term, debilitating disease. This homeowner’s efforts not only include volunteering for the City of Avondale and her local school district, but also as the acting Board President of her Avondale community since 2005. Despite her diagnosis, this homeowner’s unwavering passion for community advocacy and volunteer work is still very evident as she continues to be a role model in leadership for her community.
We were honored to be able to present the HOPE Grant to this very deserving homeowner. AAM believes in cultivating a culture of compassion and outreach programs such as these helps to build stronger working relationships among our communities. At AAM, we feel truly fortunate to be able to give back to the communities in which we live and serve.
