Community Partnership Group joins the Launch of Home Matters

20 March 2013

The Community Partnership Group Helps Launch National "Home Matters" Movement

The Community Partnership Group in West Palm Beach, Florida, offers an array of housing, clinical, and community service, through two member non-profit organizations: Housing Partnership, Inc. and Parent Child Center, inc. The organization's President & CEO, Patrick McNamara, serves on the Florida Community Loan Fund (FCLF) Board of Directors and NMTC Advisory Board.

Housing Partnership recently announced the launch of a new national movement called Home Matters™. Below is their launch announcement.


cpg-homemattersOn March 12th, Housing Partnership, a member of the Community Partnership Group, helped launch a new national movement called Home Matters™, which aims to build public support for the essential role that Home plays as the bedrock for thriving lives, families, and a stronger nation. Home Matters is spearheaded by National NeighborWorks® Association – of which we are a member – along with a coast-to-coast coalition of housing and community development organizations, other nonprofits, companies, and the public at large.

As it expands, Home Matters will go beyond housing and illuminate the connections between stable housing and other important facets of American life such as:

  - Individual Success: Home recharges adults and children alike for the day ahead.
  - Education: Children in stable homes learn and achieve more in school.
  - Health: Healthy habits take root more easily in stable affordable homes.
  - Public Safety: Stable homes make communities safer.
  - A Strong Economy: Homes that are affordable are crucial to a vibrant job-generating economy.

I hope that you will visit the Home Matters website (www.HomeMattersAmerica.com), share your insights, tell your colleagues and friends about the movement, and connect to it through Facebook and Twitter. It’s time for the crucial roles that Home plays to be more broadly understood.

Please contact me anytime to talk about home and family in Palm Beach County. 

Patrick McNamara, President and CEO
