ST. LOUIS, Mo. – Home Builders Association, on behalf of the Home Builders Charitable Foundation, has donated $20,000 to L’Arche St. Louis.

The donation will be used to help build a new house to serve as a lifetime home to four aging adult clients with intellectual and developmental disabilities and four full-time, live-in caregivers. The ADA-compliant, universally designed home is being built in Brentwood, Mo.

The organization currently has three such homes in the St. Louis area, two in Maplewood and one in Webster Groves. HBA member company Compass Design Build is the general contractor for the new home construction project.
