Our favorite thing to build is community.

Browning is constantly involved in development and construction around the region, but beyond our projects we are committed to supporting and strengthening the communities where we live and work. 

Each year our employees come together to amplify the meaningful community impact of a nonprofit partner, improving lives and building community.

INHP Project Day

For 2018 we chose the Indianapolis Neighborhood Housing Partnership© for our day of service.  We are passionate about INHP©‘s mission of working towards an Indianapolis where everyone has the opportunity to live in a safe, decent and affordable home in a thriving neighborhood. The Living the Dream project celebrates families who work very hard to attain their goal of buying a home, ultimately creating a long-term impact in their families and the neighborhoods they choose.  During the day-long event, Browning employees volunteered more than 210 hours to make improvements to the home of Kelly, a single mom raising two daughters. Kelly completed INHP’s Homeownership Preparation program to qualify for a mortgage and purchase a home. While working with an INHP advisor for 15 months, Kelly increased her credit score, paid off collections and used INHP’s Individual Development Account program to save for a down payment. She also increased her financial literacy by taking every INHP education class, which included: Successful Renting, Understanding Credit, Dollars & Sense, and Homebuyer Education. While Kelly was away, Browning volunteers constructed and furnished many exterior and interior improvements to the home, including fencing, landscaping and furniture. The changes will also help add value and stability to Kelly’s home and neighborhood.

Holiday Commitment

Our project day with INHP has also inspired us to spread the holiday spirit by empowering more future homeowners.  In celebration of the 2018 holiday season, Browning has made a donation to INHP’s Homeownership Preparation program, to help qualify 200 families for homeownership so next year they can celebrate the holidays at home.  The Homeownership Preparation program helps families gain the skills needed to overcome barriers to becoming homeowners.
