Associa Cares Provides Financial Assistance To 22 Families Displaced By Building Fire

March 23, 2022

St. Paul, MN — March 22, 2022 — Associa Cares, the community management industry’s leading charitable organization, has provided financial assistance to 22 families and individuals in St. Paul’s Summit Hill Townhomes community who lost their homes in a building fire this past November. Associa Cares provided grants to help them pay for immediate basic needs as they recovered from the fire. Summit Hill Townhomes is a client community of Cities Management, an Associa® Company.

“Associa Cares knows that the loss of a home is unimaginable, and we want this community to know that we support them. That’s why we work closely with our Associa branches across the country to administer funds where and when they are most needed,” stated Andrew Fortin, Associa Cares president. “Associa Cares supports both Associa-managed and non-Associa managed communities. We are committed to helping anyone in need as they work to rebuild their lives.”

“As soon as we received the news of the destruction caused by this fire at one of our client communities, our team jumped into action,” stated Kate Grutzmacher, CMCA®, AMS®, Cities Management president. “We are honored to partner with Associa Cares to offer a helping hand to those impacted. We hope that these relief grants will help the families of Summit Hill Townhomes meet their immediate needs during this time of recovery and remind them that they do not have to face this alone.”
