“We jumped at the opportunity to support Indy Gateway’s efforts. It allowed our company to be part of building someone’s future home, increasing affordable housing opportunities on the westside, and teaching young people the workforce skills that our state desperately needs. As the saying goes, ‘A rising tide raises all boats,’ and I believe that to be true. Affordable housing options, improved quality of life, people with the necessary skills to fill jobs—it’s all connected and you can see the energy and excitement as the impact is realized.”Beth RovazziniPresident, B&W Plumbing and Heating Co.
