Northwest Children’s Foundation 2018 Gala & Auction
At Isola Homes we are more than a Seattle home builder, we are participants in the future of our children. We believe child abuse is more than bruises and broken bones. While physical abuse might be the most visible, other types of abuse, such as emotional abuse and neglect, also leave deep, lasting scars on kids. The earlier abused children get help, the greater chance they have to heal and break the cycle.
The Northwest Children's Foundation works to end the cycle of child abuse and neglect. They provide grants to programs that heal abused children by providing counseling and treatment for our youngest victims of abuse and neglect, strengthen fragile families by reaching out to those coping with homelessness, mental illness, substance abuse and domestic violence (some of the strongest risk factors for child abuse and neglect), help at-risk youth by teaching them how to make good decisions and fulfill their potential through mentoring, tutoring and other opportunities.
Partnering with NWCF affords us an opportunity to give back to our community and make a difference. Ultimately, we reap some of the best rewards of our donations which are the positive effects of giving to charity. Here are a couple examples of the effects of donating.
In research conducted by the National Institutes of Health, participants who chose to donate a portion of $100 they were provided enjoyed activated pleasure centers in the brain. Although this experiment was controlled and scientific, it did show that donating money simply makes you feel better, which is something we can all benefit from.
We don't live in a perfect world, and there's never going to be a perfect time to give—but there are always people out there in need of help. Whether interest rates are rising, the economy is stagnant, or even if you're experiencing financial difficulties of your own, the reality is that when you donate your money, you help others who need it.
Whether you are a future homeowner or a current Isola homeowner by purchasing an Isola Home, you are helping to make a lasting difference in the life of a vulnerable child. Isola Homes donates a portion of the proceeds from every home sale to Northwest Children’s Foundation. Together we are healing abused children, helping at-risk youth and strengthening fragile families.
