Lady A has been announced as the official 2024 ambassadors of Cornerstone Building Brands’ Home for Good project. 

Since launching the Home for Good project in 2016, Cornerstone Building Brands has donated more than $3.4 million in products and resources to help build or remodel over 720 homes in 135 communities. By joining forces with Lady A’s Dave Haywood, Charles Kelley and Hillary Scott, the company hopes to continue its long-standing initiative to spread awareness on the affordable housing crisis by helping to provide housing to families in need.

This partnership also closely aligns with the mission of the trio’s LadyAid Fund, which is to use their platform to bring awareness to various initiatives within their local community as well as many others around the world.  

“We’re delighted to be part of sharing the incredible work the Home for Good project does,” Scott says of the new partnership. “Everyone deserves a safe, warm place for their family to call home. So, this project to help more people from all walks of life achieve their dream of having a home of their own truly resonates with us. We’re so proud to be partnering with Cornerstone Building Brands this year!”

As stated in a recent release, Cornerstone Building Brands – the largest manufacturer of exterior building products by sales in North America – has also announced the renewal of its eight-year partnership with the global nonprofit, Habitat for Humanity. The company has pledged to support the construction and renovation of affordable housing throughout North America in 2024 by donating building materials such as donating vinyl siding, windows, metal roofing, and accessories valued at half a million dollars.  

“We are thrilled to team up with Lady A and renew our partnership with Habitat for Humanity through our Home for Good project,” said Rose Lee, President and Chief Executive Officer of Cornerstone Building Brands. “Making homeownership more accessible for families at all income levels is central to our company’s vision and purpose of positively contributing to the communities where people live, work and play.”

According to data obtained from The State of the Nation’s Housing 2023 from the Harvard Joint Center for Housing Studies, the significant increases in interest rates throughout 2023 have continued to affect housing markets and affordability across the U.S. The report concluded that the uptick in mortgage costs has made homeownership unattainable for millions of renters, as indicated by a 22% annual decline in the number of mortgages issued to first-time homebuyers in 2022. 

The result of this crisis is many families have been left without the safety and comfort of their homes, something that Cornerstone Building Brands hopes to continue to bring awareness to with Lady A’s help. In 2024, the Home for Good project is expected to support an estimated 100 Habitat for Humanity builds.

“Housing is the foundation for strong families and communities,” said Tolli Love, chief development officer at Habitat for Humanity International. “Through the Home for Good project, Habitat and Cornerstone Building Brands are able to help even more homeowners build a place where their families can thrive. We are grateful for our continued partnership with Cornerstone Building Brands and look forward to seeing the impact of this year’s project.”

Lady A joins a long list of country stars who have previously served as ambassadors for Cornerstone Building Brands, including Alan Jackson, Jon Pardi, Luke Bryan, who have each shown support in a variety of ways, from participating in on-site home builds to hosting private concerts for volunteers.    

“I think we all have experienced how deeply music connects us,” said Lee surrounding the company’s ongoing collaboration with members of the country music community. “The country music industry ambassadors have helped us raise awareness for the need of affordable housing, enabling us to make a stronger impact while creating wonderful homes for families.”
