At Fairway Corporate Responsibility is an integral part of the how and why of what we do. Just as important as helping families achieve their dreams of home ownership are the efforts we make to support each other, and the communities where we live and work.
American Warrior Initiative-Trains real estate professionals and loan officers how to handle the housing needs of veterans with care and dignity, and provides funding for the unmet needs of veterans in the communities where the trainings are held. To date has provided over $1.5 million in support to over 100 veterans in the form of service dogs, home improvements, and business grants among other items. AWI is a non-profit founded by a Fairway branch manager, generously supported primarily through donations from Fairway employees and affiliates.
