Vector Security Re-Ups Partnership With Habitat for Humanity
Under an exclusive agreement, Vector Security will work with Habitat’s Jacksonville affiliate, HabiJax, to install security systems that provide full perimeter protection.
PITTSBURGH — Vector Security has been awarded a contract to provide security for all new Habitat for Humanity homes built in Jacksonville, Fla., during the 2018-2019 contract year.
Habit for Humanity is a global nonprofit organization that partners with families in need of housing. Habitat for Humanity homeowners build their own homes alongside volunteers from the organization, and pay an affordable mortgage.
Under the exclusive agreement, Vector Security will work with Habitat’s Jacksonville affiliate, HabiJax, to install a security system that provides full perimeter protection including two motion sensors, indoor and outdoor sirens, telephone interface and backup battery in each new home constructed during the contract period.
The security systems will be installed as each new home is built; approximately 18 homes are expected to be completed during the contract year.
“Vector Security is pleased to assist Habitat for Humanity in its work to provide safe and affordable housing for those in need,” says Walter Smith, general manager of Vector Security’s Jacksonville branch. “Homeownership is a huge milestone, and we are proud to be able to help Habitat homeowners protect their homes with reliable security equipment.”
“In addition, we will be supporting the construction of one Habitat home in the Jacksonville area via financial and employee volunteer support,” Smith adds.
The contract is part of a long-standing relationship between Vector Security and Habitat for Humanity. Over the years, employees from across the company’s service footprint have volunteered to help build Habitat homes. Additionally, Vector Security provides protection for HabiJax outlet stores, ReStore of Jacksonville.
“Vector Security is providing an extremely high quality product to our client families. I was also very touched that they have agreed to donate a security system for one of this year’s homes,” says Jerry Ingle, vice president of construction and real estate for HabiJax. “We look forward to working with a company that understands the importance of affordable homeownership.”
