As Crescent Homes continues to grow throughout the southeast, the private homebuilder plans to expands the GIVE program to other markets, recently launching the program in Nashville. By bringing attention to so many small groups, Crescent Homes aims to create connections between local charities and our homebuyers, thus spreading awareness, establishing relationships and, ultimately, building a strong sense of community.
