GARDEN GROVE, Calif. — IB Roof Systems and Antis Roofing & Waterproofing joined forces to donate a new roof for the Thomas House Family Shelter’s new property, giving homeless families with children a stable roof over their heads.
Teams from both companies dedicated their time and resources to the two-week-long project, which was completed in August. IB Roof Systems donated all the materials and products for the project, while Antis Roofing & Waterproofing generously offered to provide the labor at no cost.
“IB Roof Systems is honored to have supported the incredible work being done at Thomas House Family Shelter,” said Jason Stanley, CEO of IB Roof Systems. “Through the involvement of Antis Roofing & Waterproofing, IB’s Contractor of the Year, we were able to provide top-tier roofing materials for safe and secure homes for the families being served by Thomas House Family Shelter.”
The new roof is a major step towards the property’s official opening. The property will act as an expansion for Thomas House Family Shelter, increasing their capacity from 16 to 24 apartment units to house homeless families with children.
“Thank you IB Roof Systems for providing a complete roofing system for Thomas House Family Shelter,” said Charles Antis, the founder and CEO of Antis Roofing & Waterproofing. “Thank you, Natalie Julien and her team, for building the model to lift families from homelessness on the way to their highest selves. Your stories inspire us. It is our pleasure to keep you safe and dry with our partnership with IB.”
For over 30 years, Thomas House Family Shelter has served the community by providing a safe, supportive environment and the resources necessary for homeless families with children to remain together while empowering them to become independent and self-sufficient. With a success rate of 90 percent, Thomas House Family Shelter continues to grow its impact by working with over 100 local community partners and over 175 dedicated volunteers annually.
