PCHTF Kicks Off Stable, Steady, Strong 2018 Campaign

“We cannot attract and retain the best employees if there is not housing available for them that they can afford.  Therefore, if we want our community to continue to grow, it is more critical than ever that we join the Polk County Housing Trust Fund in this important endeavor.”

- Rick Tollakson, President & CEO, Hubbell Realty
Honorary Chair, Stable, Steady, Strong 2018 Campaign  

A stronger economy begins at home. Literally.

That is why the Polk County Housing Trust Fund kicks off our campaign this month. 

Our annual campaign, this year named Stable, Steady, Strong, provides funders the opportunity to help provide critical programs and services for residents to connect with greater resources leading to securing and maintaining housing choices that are safe, stable and affordable.  How does that impact the economy?

  • Educational programs provide the foundation for stable housing.
  • Employees who enjoy the comfort of stable housing tend to be a more productive and steady workforce.
  • A steady workforce is crucial to a strong economy in which everyone benefits.

Rick Tollakson, President and CEO of Hubbell Realty, recognizes how our homes are our community’s most basic building block.  As honorary chair of the 2018 campaign Rick says, “One of my major concerns at Hubbell Realty is attracting and retaining a qualified workforce.  Affordable housing is one of the keys to making this happen.  We cannot attract and retain the best employees if there is not housing available for them that they can afford.” 

Corporate and community support of Stable, Steady, Strong 2018 will make a difference – in the lives of area residents, the growth of neighborhoods, the productivity of employees and the continued strength of our local economy.  For more information on making a donation or becoming involved, please contact PCHTF Director of Advancement Tracy Levine, tlevine@pchtf.org or call 515-282-3233.
