A Prosperous Future for Homebuilding in California
Our mission is to advance the homebuilding industry in California by providing scholarships, publishing innovative research findings, and promoting workforce education programs.
How We Serve Our Community
We provide the resources and support for students to train for their future careers, continue their education, and pursue their dreams of success.
Making a difference in the lives of students makes a difference in the future of homebuilding. Establish an endowment, give a scholarship or leave a legacy with planned giving.
