Day 4 of our charitable businesses in the multifamily industry highlights Mid-America Apartments (MAA). MAA was initially founded in 1973 as The Cates Company and became Mid-America Apartments in 1993.
For over 15 years MAA has been operating the Open Arms Foundation, which is a corporate charity serving those in need that must travel away from home in order to receive medical treatment. The Open Arms Foundation provides temporary housing in a multitude of cities throughout the country for those families that become displaced from their permanent homes, as result of a family member needing specialized medical treatment in a different city. The housing provided is free of cost to the families and seeks to help alleviate a small piece of the families stress and financial burdens associated with a family member becoming ill. This is an incredible foundation that MAA has established and I can only imagine how much this has helped those families in need.
Great job MAA!
