Associa Gives Back to One of its Own

July 29, 2014

Dallas, TX - Dallas-based Associa, the nation’s largest community association management  firm, helps families nationwide get back on their feet after a disaster  through its non-profit organization Associa Cares. So when one of its  own employees found her apartment flooded, the company surprised her  with a check for $1500.

“If it weren't for Associa Cares, I would  be struggling to make up the money I've had to spend on my move,” says  Diane Hampson.  “It gave me the ability to make up for some of the  losses I incurred.” 

Hampson was recently presented with the  check after her top floor apartment unit in East Dallas was flooded  following heavy rains in late June.  She was allowed to break her lease  since the complex had not adequately maintained the roof but they  offered her no compensation for the damage to her personal items  including her mattress which turned into a waterlogged, muddy mess and  was not covered by her renters insurance.

“The day before I was  to purchase a new mattress on a '90 days same as cash' program I opened  the envelope and saw the amount they'd given me, I shouted 'There's my  90 days same as cash,'” recalls Hampson. “In short, what Associa Cares  did was make a horrific situation bearable.  I am extremely grateful for  the quick action they took and cannot thank them enough!”

Hampson  works at Associa’s Client Shared Service Center in Richardson and has  been with the company for 11 years. She says, “It’s one thing to say  'One Team, One Family.’ The generosity of Associa Cares is one of many  ways this company shows that this is not just a slogan - it's part of  the company's core.”

Associa Cares is a national nonprofit  501(c)(3) organization created to assist families and communities in  crisis as a result of natural and man-made disasters. Through donations  raised at fundraising events across the country, Associa Cares is able  to provide necessary goods and services to the families affected by  these types of tragedies.
