The organization is a nonprofit affiliate of the California Building Industry Association, a trade group representing homebuilders, trade contractors, architects, engineers and other industry professionals.
The foundation provides networking events, research and statistics, academic assistance, grant funding and job training for high school students. It also honors the industry’s top leaders in the “Hall of Fame.” McCaffrey and her husband, Robert, were inducted into the Hall of Fame in June.
“I’m proud to serve an organization that invests in the future of the homebuilding industry by helping students, empowering lives, and building futures,” Karen McCaffrey said. “The foundation serves both members and the public as an educational and informational resource for all things related to homebuilding. CHF makes a difference in our community and across the state. I look forward to assisting that good work.”
