It isn’t often that you see a real estate developer committed to philanthropic projects, but if you do it’s most likely Jason Halpern. His work with the Joel A. Halpern Trauma Center in West Chester, New York. The passion for him here is in helping individuals that have traumatic injuries as well as difficult surgical procedures. Halpern has long been an advocate of charitable endeavors within his community. While he supports charitable causes, he felt that his own endeavors would be a more appropriate way to show kindness.
Orthopedic surgery is also a common surgical procedure at the trauma center which includes the re-attachment of severed limbs. Burn victims require special treatment, and the Halpern trauma center offers help and treatment for these burn victims in the West Chester area. Anyone with life-threatening injuries, as well as women that may be pregnant and children that need care are also welcome to the trauma center to get the help they need.
JMH Development is now focused on funneling much of the efforts to support charities through the company to help others. This also includes a partnership that Halpern worked on building with a non-profit known as Global Water. This charity is specifically connected to JMH Development, and the partnership was sealed in 2015. The water projects that he plans to fund are in countries where clean or running water is not readily available. Countries like Nepal and Ethiopia have struggled to get the water they need when they need it for their communities. Now that has changed with the global water initiative.
Real Estate development has always been Halpern’s passion, but within that he has used his passion to help others selflessly. His continued efforts on development in some of the most desirable cities won’t change, but that doesn’t mean that he has forgotten who needs help and how he can make a contribution. Halpern’s projects are a great model for any business person that wants to contribute to society in the most basic of ways to the most intricate of ways.
