At Datatrend, we want our team members, the communities we serve, our customers and partners to recognize that giving back is an inherent part of our company culture. Not even rain could stop us from spending time with the Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity. The Datatrend team spent a few days with our local Habitat for Humanity chapter helping to build a home for a family in need. Habitat for Humanity’s mission is based on the premise that everyone, everywhere, should have a healthy, affordable place to call home. More than building homes, through volunteering we have the opportunity to build communities, hope and the opportunity for families to help themselves. With an affordable, stable home, families have more to spend on food, medicine, child care, education and other essentials.

An award-winning nonprofit housing developer, Twin Cities Habitat is committed to building the quality of life, health and economic prosperity of the region by producing, preserving and advocating for affordable homeownership – because homes and families are the foundation of successful communities. More than 1,100 families have purchased a Twin Cities Habitat home since 1985. Since 1998, more than 1,800 homeowners have received home repairs through their A Brush with Kindness Program.

Datatrend’s plan is to focus on the core communities where we work and do business. We want to Make IT Matter. Our initial focus is on Minneapolis, followed by Atlanta, Raleigh and Washington, DC.  Datatrend makes a substantial financial donation to each of these regional Habitat for Humanity organizations. In addition to a financial donation, all of our team members participate in a day of working on site at a Habitat for Humanity project.  This involves construction work, painting, landscaping and a variety of other home building/improvement activities. We consider ourselves so lucky to be able to give back directly to the community in which we live.
