Giving Back: Our Community Involvement

Steele Group Architects is committed to making the world a better place now and for future generations. Whether it is through our firm-wide commitment to creating sustainable and energy efficient buildings, through our “Design For Life” approach to architecture, or through donations of our time and expertise, giving back to the community is a core belief of our staff. We believe our values – sustainability, community service and social accountability – are directly tied to our broader business practice and make our firm a better place to work. Some of the groups that we are involved with are:
Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation |
Habitat for Humanity of Forsyth County |
ABC of NC Child Development Center |
Downtown Arts District Association |
Girl Scouts Carolinas Peaks to Piedmont |
Pedal for Penick |

Habitat For Humanity

Habitat for Humanity of Forsyth County has a philosophy of a “hand-up, not a hand-out,” and has made homeownership a reality for more than 350 families in our community. As the largest builder of Energy Star Homes in our area, Habitat has improved not only where the homeowners live, but how they live as well. Our Matthew Rodda has volunteered on design teams for the two Green Build projects that have been built, and Steele Group Architects donated services to the design of the new Habitat ReStore, which aims to generate more than $1.2 million in sales and over $400,000 in profit annually to help fund programs and services for our local Habitat chapter.
