2018 Los Angeles Builders Ball® Host Committee Spotlight: Brad Cox

Brad Cox has been involved with Habitat for Humanity of Greater Los Angeles (Habitat LA) for several years and this year he is serving as Co-Chair of our 2018 Los Angeles Builders Ball. His leadership and support for our mission has been a tremendous asset, and we are thrilled to have his guidance in the planning and execution of our annual fundraising event. As you will learn in this short interview below, Brad is not only motivated to help his community, he is committed to raising it up.

What or Who inspires you (or motivates) you to give back in your community?
As a farm kid from Indiana, I appreciate that Los Angeles provided me the opportunity to build a successful real estate career in a community that rewards individuals for hard work and creativity for solving complex problems without discrimination for race, background or education. Great communities are built on sharing a common belief that we all need to work together to help each other succeed.

Why do you support Habitat for Humanity? How long have you been involved?
I have been involved and supported Habitat LA for four years. I am pleased to be involved in a great organization that supports individuals in need, and who appreciate and recognize the benefit of unifying families into quality housing which elevates their confidence and self-esteem.

Do you have a superpower?
The belief that a successful society requires individuals to engage, communicate and respect people of all walks of life. Each of us has our own story and we must appreciate that a society thrives when it supports its weakest links.

What does “home” mean to you?
Home is a safe, supportive, clean, loving, accepting and healthy environment.
