Renew Financial recently donated $25,000 to Habitat for Humanity of Lee and Hendry Counties. The donation, presented by Renew Financial Founder Cisco DeVries and Regional Director of Government Affairs Natalie Schneider, will support Habitat for Humanity's Disaster Recovery Program, the long-term solution to address damage caused by natural disasters in Lee and Hendry Counties.

"Since our founding, Renew Financial has been dedicated to empowering homeowners to make their properties safe, efficient and comfortable. To that end, we're very proud to support the critical work that Habitat for Humanity does every day," said DeVries. "This donation, in addition to the home improvement financing option we offer through RenewPACE, will help to create a stronger, safer Florida."

Shortly after Hurricane Irma, Renew Financial led several efforts to help Florida homeowners recover from the storm. These investments in Florida's long-term recovery culminated in the check presentation to Habitat for Humanity in honor of every Florida home strengthened in partnership with RenewPACE. June marked the start of a new hurricane season for Florida, underscoring the ongoing need for storm-proofing and other upgrades that make homes more secure and comfortable.

Renew Financial's PACE financing product, RenewPACE, has proved to be an effective option for homeowners needing to repair storm-damaged roofs or windows. RenewPACE is a proactive choice for homeowners seeking storm windows and roofs to better withstand future storms.
