WE BELIVE COMMUNITIES ARE MANIFESTATIONS OF POTENTIAL.
When you buy a 3 Square home, you become part of a three-way relationship. You are part of a process that strengthens homes, families and consequently, the community. We do this by including support for the neighborhood elementary, middle and high school in which the home resides and a local non-profit, Savio House in every relationship.
Every time one of our homes is purchased, 3 Square will donate $10,000 among the elementary, middle and high schools in that home’s community. And if desired, the donation can be in the Seller’s name, because without that individual selling us their home, our business would not exist.
Additionally, every time one of our homes is purchased, 3 Square will donate $5,000 to Savio House, a 50+ year proven, local organization committed to supporting families who are at risk, historically under-served and in need of family services. And if desired, we will do this donation in the new homeowner's name.
WHY THESE TWO ORGANIZATIONS?
Steve and Julie went to public schools as children and believe in the ability of the public school system to meet the needs of the community’s children academically as well as socially. These communities and the families within them are the reason we can have a real estate business here. Steve and Julie’s boys have attended public schools throughout their academic careers and are currently enrolled at South High School in the Wash Park neighborhood.
Also, there is a direct connection between Denver Public Schools (DPS) and Savio House in that most of the children and families Savio serves are because of DPS and other school systems’ desire to help these families and reach out when they see children struggling.
Lastly, the Executive Director at Savio House, Norma Aguilar-Dave was Julie’s college roommate, and their families continue to be very close to this day. Steve and Julie supported Savio with financial contributions and Julie was a volunteer on the Outreach Committee over the past 15 years, so it was a natural connection and an organization that is personally close to us. And… all the adults are Ohio State graduates. Go Bucks!
DENVER FIRE DEPARTMENT
The Denver Fire Department (DFD) started a program in 2021 called “Acquired Structures.” That same year we purchased 1674 S. Madison Street and the owner we purchased the home from was a Denver Firefighter for over 30 years. Prior to construction, he reached out to us about participating in this innovative training program which allows residential real estate developers and the DFD to work together to leverage a home that is already scheduled for demolition and provide an opportunity for them to train in a “real world” environment.
This was a no-brainer decision for us to participate. The training involves breaking down doors and windows, opening the roofs, dragging fire hoses into and through the house and using tools to break apart segments of the home to mimic an actual fire or emergency situation. As one of Denver’s earliest developer participants in this program we are happy to have an opportunity to use our business to support our brave Denver Firefighters!
