Modus Build has joined the Austin Hatcher Foundation for Pediatric Cancer’s Capital Campaign: “Transforming Lives, Building Dreams”.

After working on the construction of the foundation’s Education Advancement Center, Modus Build also decided to partner with the Austin Hatcher Foundation Pediatric Cancer on its capital campaign to aid the foundation in its expansion of services.

“Modus Build is proud to have provided preconstruction and construction services to the Austin Hatcher Foundation in Chattanooga," said Clint Dean. "It is such an honor to support their ongoing mission in this small way as they strive to serve local families faced with pediatric cancer. The folks at AHFPC do such an amazing job for children facing this awful diagnosis. Seeing their passion, humility, and infectiously positive attitudes have been such a wonderful experience, and we are so appreciative of what they do.”

With the money raised through “Transforming Lives, Building Dreams,” the foundation intends to grow its services. By having additional space for new and current programs, the foundation is able to offer ways for individuals to improve their social, emotional, and physical well-being. Therapies focus on treating a different deficit from cancer treatment as patients navigate life during or following their cancer diagnosis.

“We are delighted to have Modus Build as a partner in our 'Transforming Lives, Building Dreams' capital campaign,” said foundation President Amy Jo Osborn. “It is a true testament to this company’s integrity and passion for giving back. Every step in the construction of 'building' this dream, Modus was there with helping hands and guidance. We are truly grateful.”

The addition of this campaign will provide opportunities for the foundation’s staff to offer new services to patients and meet each individual’s evolving needs. By building capacity, the foundation works toward their mission to erase the effects of childhood cancer.
