Aside from a hug or snuggle, what can give foster children a sense of security? Impact-resistant Simonton StormBreaker Plus® windows.
In June of last year, a group of volunteer contractors dedicated their time and talents to renovating a foster care home for children in Fort Lauderdale. As part of the day-long project benefiting 4 Kids of South Florida, more than a dozen energy-efficient Simonton StormBreaker Plus® windows (that were donated by Simonton Windows), were installed in the home.
“The Simonton impact-resistant windows contributed made this a safer, more energy-efficient living environment,” says Bill Owens, building products manager for Town and Country, the ABC Company coordinating the project. “These windows resist severe weather conditions without the need for shuttering or boarding up, so the occupants don’t need to worry about last-minute preparations for storms.
“Even though building codes do not require impact-resistant windows for where this home is located, we’re thrilled to provide them for this house. In addition, these windows help reduce noise infiltration and help deter burglary attempts, giving greater peace-of-mind to the girls living at the house.”
4 Kids of South Florida works with the foster care system in Broward, Palm Beach and Dade counties to help children of all ages with support, encouragement and direction. For more information, click here.
