More than 16 million children live in extreme poverty in the United States and arrive on the First Day of school without the supplies they need to learn. Cushman and Wakefield Jacksonville partnered up with the Hubbard House and raised more than $400 worth of school supplies for children in need.
Hubbard House’s mission is safety, empowerment, and social change for victims of domestic violence and their families. Jacksonville was one of the early leaders in the women’s movement and in developing services to address gender violence. In 1976, a group of dedicated women purchased a house on Hubbard Street and Hubbard House opened its doors as the first shelter specifically for victims of domestic violence and their children in Florida. Over the years, Hubbard House expanded to provide services to meet the needs of women, children, and men who have been affected by domestic violence, intervention for children who have lived with violence, and programs that work with abusers on changing the attitudes and beliefs that sanction violence.
Cheers to the Jacksonville team in spearheading this wonderful initiative.
The Cushman & Wakefield Florida team is committed to giving back to those in need in our communities and around the world. In honor of Cushman & Wakefield’s Centennial, Cushman & Wakefield in Florida will be highlighting employees/initiatives giving back throughout the state. Our goal is to spotlight 100 examples of giving back in 2017.
