Habitat & the Heart of Stone Source

As the world welcomes a new era of sustainability and social consciousness, Stone Source aims to create a positive social impact through sustainable design and purposeful support for diverse, equitable, and inclusive communities.

Stone Source was honored to work hand-in-hand with Habitat LA to help build affordable homes for hardworking families and individuals. Habitat LA is an organization dedicated to making homeownership possible for low-income families and creating a positive impact to local communities.

At the heart of Stone Source is our company culture that starts with the leadership of social responsibility. Giving back is a core value for Stone Source associates, best demonstrated when we step out of our day-to-day business and into our community.

Gus Mojarro, National Director of Warehouse & Safety Operations, personifies leadership at Stone Source. Driven by his own personal story, Gus collaborated with Habitat for Humanity, LA to find enough warehouse space to prepare the Habitat ReStore for what could be their largest donation of natural stone & tile ever.  Over 180,000 square feet of tile (enough for over 1,000 kitchen) required genuine creativity and persistence to ensure the donation was safely and successfully delivered.

Gus directly attributes his success in life and business to the donated home he and his family received in the suburbs of Chicago, IL as a child.  Deeply seeded memories from that experience guide and fuel his drive to give back and constantly do more for the communities in need around him.

Stone Source’s top executives and employees from across the country gave back to the community by participating in a two-day build in South LA with Habitat for Humanity of the Greater Los Angeles Willowbrook neighborhood. Without the innovative and dynamic leadership of Mike and Kory to advance our company’s social vision, our partnership with Habitat LA would not have been possible.

This development features eight new affordable detached, single-family homes with three bedrooms and two bathrooms. Each home will be approximately 1,000 – 1,150 square feet. Homes will be sustainably built and will include low VOC paints and finishes, low flush /flow plumbing, drought-tolerant landscaping, and solar panels.

Stone Source’s efforts to produce high-quality products reflect our mission to promote sustainable design and development that create positive environments and in return inclusive communities. We are grateful to have collaborated with Habitat LA to help build and repair houses that people are proud to call home.
