Spectrum Cares is committed to reaching further into our communities to help those in need, elevate positivity, and enhance programs dedicated to serving the people in our neighborhoods.
From helping at-risk youth to raising money and awareness for cancer research, from building homes for the homeless to securing safer futures for victims of domestic violence, we are passionate about supporting initiatives that change lives.
Each year we bring our entire team together for a day of giving, team building, and celebrating! In February, over 100 team members, spouses, and significant others gathered in Charlotte and devoted 300+ hours to helping The Relatives, Baby Bundles, and Second Harvest Food Bank. These hours together are some of the most memorable and meaningful time we spend as a company.
“My grandmother, mother and all three sisters had breast cancer. Susan G. Komen is important to us, not only for what they did for my sister when she was unemployed, but also for what they do in our community. We honor my sister Anita, who lost her battle in 2017, by participating in the race each year. It’s terrible to think that women die because they can’t afford testing or mammograms.”
– Carla Seckman, Property Accountant, The Spectrum Cos.
We have a unique opportunity to truly impact our communities beyond the special places we create for our clients.
Habitat for Humanity’s vision is of a world where everyone has a decent place to live. Spectrum has partnered with Habitat over the years to help those in need of acquiring an affordable house they can call home.
Since partnering with Habitat for Humanity, Spectrum has built one complete home and assisted with building multiple other houses for families in the Charlotte area.
Located in Raleigh, NC, the mission of Haven House Services is to strengthen youth and young adults through effective programs, advocacy and community mobilization.
Since beginning our partnership with Haven House Services in 2017, Spectrum has collected food and school supplies, and made physical improvements to both the Haven House Services’ administrative offices and the Wrenn House, the only homeless, runaway and crisis intervention program and shelter for youth in the Triangle.
The Relatives’ mission is to keep kids safe, families together, and prepare youth and young adults to be healthy, productive, engaged members of the community.
Serving Mecklenburg County and the surrounding areas, The Relatives provide a system of resources that helps children and youth find shelter and support. The Relatives Crisis Center, the On Ramp Resource Center, and Journey Place Transitional Residence keep kids safe and families together.
When one of our long-time employees was diagnosed with Stage IV colon cancer at the age of 36, we immediately “got our rears in gear” to help the Colon Cancer Coalition bring understanding, raise awareness, increase screenings, and eliminate the fear of colon cancer.
Since 2012, Spectrum has donated over $15,000 to the Raleigh Get Your Rear In Gear 5K.
In 2009, our Raleigh team began partnering with The Salvation Army to support Project Angel Tree, a program focused on providing new clothing and toys to children in need during the Christmas season.
With the help of our generous tenants, we have provided gifts and much-needed shoes, coats, and clothing for over 2,550 children.
Dedicated to ending the cycle of domestic and sexual violence in Wake County, North Carolina, InterAct saves lives, rebuilds lives, and secures safer futures for victims and survivors and their families.
Spectrum has contributed time, labor and materials to help InterAct maintain their Emergency Shelter, a vital community resource for victims of domestic violence.
The Men’s Shelter of Charlotte operates Mecklenburg County’s only two year-round emergency shelters for men experiencing homelessness. They also provide an array of support services, including housing and employment aide, substance abuse and mental health counseling, peer support, medical respite, and dental services.
Spectrum coordinated the renovation of the men’s shelter in 2005. Along with our partners (LS3P, JE Dunn, and multiple sub-contractors), we were able to provide 220 men a safe place to sleep, shower, and receive services.
