We Believe in Giving Back

We don't just build houses. We are a part of people's lives and we want to make sure we're paying it forward in a way that truly means something to us and our clients.

We do that through the support of children's health care and research at both a national & local level. This is our passion. THIS IS OUR 'WHY'.

What did we do in 2022?

We are so happy to share that we will be partnering with the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Idaho this year (2022) in hopes that we can assist in easing the burden of families with seriously ill or injured children being treated at a Boise area medical facility.

CATCH Pillow Drive

CATCH exists because everyone needs a home. They work to create a safe, healthy, connected community by embracing Housing First best practices, empowering those without housing, builder collaborative partnerships, and increasing public understanding to make homelessness rare, brief, and non-recurring. Their vision is to end homelessness in the Treasure Valley! We collected brand new pillows and "like-new" sheets and bedding to help support their cause.

Win Something for Yourself & Give a Little Something Back Raffle

December 2022

Katie Westhora with Silvercreek Realty was the winner of our "Win Something for Yourself & Give a Little Something Back" raffle at our open house in the beautiful Hope Springs community! She selected "Our Underground Railroad" and their fight to end child trafficking as her recipient of choice for the donation winnings, and then she donated her personal winnings to Evan Young and his family, who recently survived an accident at Summer Camp that left Evan with quadriplegia. When we called to let her know, she knew it was meant to be...and now so do we.

Make-A-Wish Grantor

We, at Berkeley Building Co., couldn't have been more excited when contacted by Make-A-Wish to see if we would be interested in building a Playhouse for one of their Wish Kids who suffers from Cardiomyopathy. Without thought, we accepted the challenge and got to meet up with Jacob, a vivacious 6 year old who had a very definite idea what he was looking for. His wish list: A Phones & Ferb playhouse with an HVAC System, refrigerator, microwave, TV, DVD player, popcorn maker, an area for crafts, a place to sleep with his friends and siblings...and last but not least...a slide out the side. Our heads were spinning and we went to work with the help of our awesome team of generous subcontractors and suppliers. The result was a very happy 6 year old boy and this playhouse any kid would be excited to call their own.

St. Luke's Children's Play House Auction

It was so much fun to design, build, and auction off both of these luxury playhouses in 2011 & 2012. 100% of the ticket sells were donated to St. Luke's Children's Hospital.

OUR GOAL is to continue to grow & be better in WHAT we build and in WHO we are so we can continue to GIVE MORE.
