Orem, Utah, April 11, 2007 – Xactware recently announced that it has provided access to their ILX Construction Training program free of charge to 100 Homes in 100 Days, a nonprofit organization that will rebuild or renovate 100 homes in Mississippi that were damaged as a result of Hurricane Katrina.
Hundreds of volunteers from across the country have gathered to help rebuild and renovate 100 homes in a five-block radius of Pascagoula, Mississippi. These volunteers range from college students on spring break to skilled professionals. ILX Construction Training will be of particular benefit to volunteers with little or no construction experience. They will learn the construction methods that will enable them to contribute immediately to the progress of the project.
“ILX Construction Training has been implemented as a required course of training for my own company,” says Construction Coordinator Christopher Fossett of GreenLeaf Consulting, LLC. “Having seen the benefits it has provided to my own organization, I am confident it will be of even greater benefit for this worthy cause.”
Xactware’s ILX Construction Training is the award-winning pioneer in multimedia construction training for the residential and light-construction industries. Volunteers will have access to the online version of the program, which allows them to learn all aspects of residential construction at their own pace, for the duration of the event.
“The hurricanes along the Gulf Coast destroyed the homes and lives of many,” says Jim Loveland, CEO of Xactware. “Xactware is excited to support the rebuilding efforts by providing our ILX Construction Training program to 100 Homes in 100 Days and their volunteers who are working tirelessly to reach this goal.”

About 100 Homes in 100 Days
The 100 Homes in 100 Days project consists of a group of five hurricane-relief organizations leading an effort to rebuild 100 homes in 100 calendar days, addressing the biggest issue remaining in Katrina recovery – lack of affordable housing. The new homes will be LEED Certified green, hurricane-proof, and have better indoor air quality than typical homes. The project will take place in Pascagoula, Mississippi, beginning March 26, with completion expected on the 4th of July. More than 120 volunteers from across the country will lend their skills and expertise. Volunteer organizations active in the Gulf Coast recovery can join the effort by providing labor,
coordinating assistance, and/or sharing resources. Please contact [email protected] for more information.
