Arizona Housing Fund

We believe that everyone deserves a place to call home and in an effort to fight against homelessness, we’ve partnered with the Arizona Housing Fund. This program encourages all of our new homeowners in Arizona to donate $25 to the Arizona Housing Fund and Meritage Homes will match each $25 donation. Together we can put home within reach for the underserved in our community.
