ICC-ES Volunteers with Habitat for Humanity Orange County
December 2, 2022
ICC Evaluation Service (ICC-ES) partnered with Habitat for Humanity of Orange County (Habitat OC) on Nov. 10 in Santa Ana, California, for a day of team building and charitable contribution. Donning safety hats and protective eyewear, the ICC-ES team stepped out of their typical day job roles and got ready to work in construction building homes. Alongside the Habitat OC crew and volunteers, the ICC-ES team assisted in the construction of two single-family homes through various tasks. These future homes are part of Habitat’s vision of making affordable homeownership accessible to families in need.
Joining the Habitat OC home build allowed the ICC-ES team to engage with the community and contribute towards new affordable housing opportunities. Some team members experienced setting foot on a construction site for the first time, while others mastered their hammering technique or learned to perfect a measurement before cutting.
“The ICC-ES team is excited for this opportunity to partner with Habitat for Humanity to serve our community alongside their amazing crew and volunteers,” said Melissa Sanchez, ICC-ES senior staff engineer.
