Hope Builders is proud to recognize Behr Paint Company as a Platinum sponsor of 10 Days for Launching Careers. 

Celebrating their 75th anniversary of making life more colorful, this Santa Ana-headquartered company takes pride in investing in its local community. “We believe Hope Builders is truly helping the people who deserve it. This is a perfect intersection of philanthropy, education, and community involvement aligning with our company philosophy,” says Drew Hatcher, Senior Director of Contract Management. 

For the past 5 years, Behr Paint Company has been an incredible champion of Hope Builders and its trainees. “We appreciate that Hope Builders provides training on both life skills and job skills, giving local youth a pathway to employment and self-sufficiency. The wonderful part is that they’re learning a trade related to our product. We are thrilled to play a small role in helping this generation succeed,” says President, Jeff Filley.   

Behr places a priority on offering opportunities for engagement with Hope Builders’ young adults as they prepare to launch their careers. Therefore, team members from across the organization invest their time and talents with construction program trainees by hosting tours of their state-of-the-art R&D facility and providing trainings at Hope Builders’ facility on various painting methods. Additionally, Behr team members volunteer as mock interviewers to help prepare trainees for their future employment screenings.  

Kalie Sabajo, Talent and Organizational Development Consultant with Behr Paint Company, recently shared her own “first day of work” story:
