Because every family deserves a safe home
The median household income for a family in Puerto Rico is less than $20,000 making homeownership unattainable for low- or middle-income families. Trailer Bridge and ATS is partnering with Habitat for Humanity of Puerto Rico whose mission is to provide affordable and safe housing opportunities for these individuals and families. Through construction, rehabilitation and home repair projects Habitat for Humanity of Puerto Rico contributes to the revitalization of communities in Puerto Rico.
“We are incredibly grateful to serve alongside these families to begin the work to transform a house into a home.

“Habitat for Humanity of Puerto Rico’s work to bring people together to build homes, communities, hope, and a vision for a world where everyone has a decent place to live, is exactly the work ATS and Trailer Bridge support.”
-Jay Thomassen, Vice President – Commercial Services,
