Joe LaRosa, La Rosa Realty, LLC
One of Four 2016 ORRA Good Neighbor Award Recipients
Organization: Housing 4 All
Joe is a staunch supporter of Housing 4 All, an organization that seeks to bridge homeless veterans, families, and individuals into affordable housing and to provide the supportive services that help with integration back into a stable working environment. There is an emphasis on homeownership and self-sufficiency, and Hope 4 All also helps with down payment assistance programs and debt management.
Joe’s personal volunteer efforts span across all of the organization’s initiatives, whether it be event planning or fundraising. For example, in 2015 Joe lent his brokerage building and parking lot to host a “Basket Brigade,” an event that resulted in the Thanksgiving-time donation of 500 baskets filled with donated food and gift cards. He also encourages real estate agents, including those on the other side of his transactions, to donate a portion of their commissions to Housing 4 All. Joe even provides the Housing 4 All website!
