SUPPORT TOMORROW’S INDUSTRY LEADERS


Today’s construction trade students are Pennsylvania’s future builders, contractors and business owners. The primary focus of the Pennsylvania Foundation for Housing, Inc. is to foster the development of a strong future workforce for the home building industry in PA through PBA’s Endorsed Trade Program and other educational opportunities.


We all know what a critical role the home building industry has on the economy. While our industry overall is showing much improvement, there is a significant lack of skilled workers. We need your help to rebuild our own workforce. With your help we can fund scholarships and support programs for students who truly want to learn a trade or build a profession in residential construction.
