On Friday, September 7th, 2018 North Central Jersey Association of Realtors® (NCJAR) and its members volunteered in NCJAR’s Annual Realtors Care Day. This was an all-day, home-repair initiative sponsored by North Central Jersey Association of REALTORS® (NCJAR), New Jersey REALTORS® Housing Opportunity Foundation, Inc. (NJRHOF) and, TIAA Bank, Equal Housing Lender. Over 50 philanthropic Realtor® volunteers came out to assist homeowners in Essex and Union counties with necessary, but often unaffordable, exterior home repairs.

Since its inception, Realtors® Care Day has been a great way for Realtors® to give back to their communities through improvements including landscaping, outdoor cleanup, exterior repairs and safety modifications. Ultimately, the projects not only restore a homeowner’s pride, but also instill a revitalizing momentum in the community.

 “The assistance from our REALTOR® members and the community is instrumental,” said NCJAR President Dennis DeCarlo, “REALTORS® truly care about the communities where we live and work.  We are at the forefront of affordable housing issues, and in the best position to help homeowners with the most urgent needs.”

“REALTORS® CARE DAY” is an initiative of NCJAR and NJRHOF. As part of our commitment to sustaining affordable workforce housing, this all-day community-wide effort will assist homeowners with critical exterior home repairs.
