As we began constructing homes and developing who MN Custom Homes is, we realized giving back to the community, respecting the neighboring residents, and implementing environmentally friendly practices was of utmost importance to us. That is how our MN Cares program was born. Read on to learn more about each part of MN Cares: Community Matters, Good Neighbor Promise, and Eco-Friendly Approach.
Why We Give
We believe that local businesses should be agents of change in our community. Through our partnership with Jubilee REACH, we’re able to give back to our community and engage with them in ways that matter. Whether your involvement is with Jubilee REACH, another amazing organization, or an internal company initiative – we urge your business to find a meaningful way to give back to your community. Read on to learn about how we engage with our community.
We believe in giving from our strengths as the Eastside’s largest residential in-fill developer. Dedicated special MN | JR Home Projects help fund the in-school & community outreach programs by providing 100% of the profits from the sale of the home. In addition, we partner with over 30 subcontractors and vendors who provide discounts and donations to maximize the contribution to Jubilee REACH. Our direct impact to the community comes through our Employee Service Day where we take on the toughest projects that Ken Carpenter and his team can find. We also work directly with students through classrooms and Jubilee REACH sponsored clubs where we share insights into professions, career paths and next steps through our MN Mentorship program.
MN follows a sustainable management of construction and demolition waste. With the support of local recycling groups that are part of and promote Green Building practice, we are able to recycle all our demolition materials – drywall, concrete, wood, and metals are diverted from disposal and managed into new productive uses.
As the world is heading toward clean energy usage, we want to make it even easier to start using this form of energy in our homeowners’ new homes. Most of our homes are outfitted with solar panels and electric car charging ports in the garage.
