Habitat LA Completes Long Beach Housing Project

Bishop Kenneth Ulmer currently serves as a teacher and the senior pastor at Faithful Central Bible Church in Inglewood, California. In addition to overseeing operations at the church, Bishop Kenneth Ulmer engages in philanthropic projects with charities such as Habitat for Humanity and the Kings University National Foundation for Transplants.

Employees of the Griffin Capital Corporation have recently collaborated with Habitat for Humanity of Greater Los Angeles (Habitat LA) on a multi-unit residential development in Long Beach, California. Located near Griffin Capital Corporation headquarters in El Segundo, the Long Beach complex has been designed to serve the needs of low-income, hardworking families living in underserved areas of the state. More than 40 individuals representing the Griffin company took part in a variety of homebuilding tasks, ranging from the framing and erecting of walls to the laying of water lines. As is so often the case during a Habitat for Humanity project, many of the contributors had never handled the tools or practiced the skills necessary for the construction of a house. Griffin employees and the complex’s future tenants, however, took the challenge head on, enjoying every minute.
