At the Greenville Chamber’s 128th Annual Meeting, awards were presented to local organizations who have made a significant impact in the community. Genesis Homes was presented with the prestigious Max Heller Neighborhood Improvement Award, given to an organization that has shown exemplary efforts toward neighborhood improvement and empowerment. The award is named for former Mayor of Greenville, Max Heller, who spearheaded numerous efforts over the years to improve the quality of life for the citizens of Greenville County.
Genesis Homes received the award for their revitalization efforts in low-to–moderate income areas in the Upstate through the development of affordable housing for homeownership or home rental. The organization’s mission to address affordable housing challenges in the community sets it apart as especially deserving of the award.
Executive Director of Genesis Homes, Jim Childers, accepted the award on behalf of the organization saying, “We are extremely honored to receive this award from the Chamber and to be part of the amazing growth in Greenville.”
