Creating a Culture of Community Service
Middleburg is committed to caring for our broader communities and neighborhoods. At the ground level, residents and staff participate in local service projects together each quarter. This is not only an important and tangible reflection of our corporate values it is an essential aspect of Middleburg culture. Residents choose Middleburg properties based primarily on quality, affordability and location, yet it’s our positive and proactive, people-focused culture that shapes a signature resident experience.
These neighbor partnerships and service projects yield cleaner common spaces, brighter parks, and richer relationships. We are not only meeting housing needs; we are weaving neighborhood fabrics that reflect our residents and our sincere concern for the communities we live and work in.
In 2016, we were humbled to be recognized by Multifamily Executive as the Grand Prize winner of its Community Service award. It is our signature participatory attitude toward community service that sets us apart. Not only do we encourage our residents to participate in events with us, we also grant all full-time employees a week of paid time off to use explicitly for volunteering with the organization of their choice.
Shelters to Shutters
As a company, we are committed to supporting people who have experienced homelessness by helping them get back on their feet. We have partnered with an incredible organization called Shelters to Shutters, NMHC’s designated charity for 2017 to provide housing and employment opportunities in the property management industry.
Local Heroes Program
Middleburg is also committed to giving back to those who serve our community on a daily basis. Our Local Heroes Program honors firefighters, police officers, emergency medical technicians, and public school teachers by providing them with a rent discount at all Middleburg owned and developed communities. We launched this program because we feel strongly that those who serve our communities should be able to live in our communities.
We recognize its our responsibility as a good corporate citizen to help enrich our surrounding communities of residence and work. We recognize that volunteers represent a most valued human resource whose contributions, without compensation or promise, result in immeasurable benefit to organizations that could cease to exist otherwise. We encourage our employees to become involved in their communities, lending their voluntary support to programs that positively impact the quality of life within these communities. Middleburg offers all full time employees one week of paid time off specifically to use for volunteering.
