DEVON, PA –Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Fox & Roach’s Sr. VP and regional manager Debbie McCabe has been selected by The National Association of Realtors® as one of 10 finalists for its 2022 Good Neighbor Awards program. This award honors Realtors® who make an extraordinary difference in their communities through volunteer work.
Each year McCabe, a Covenant House board member; as well as a member of the PA and Tri-County Associations of Realtors, leads a team of realtors who voluntarily sleep outside in the city with just a cardboard box and sleeping bags to raise money to help youth experiencing homelessness. This past year McCabe’s Realtor team raised $56,738, part of which McCabe raised personally, at the fall “Sleepout” for which she was the captain. During McCabe’s time on the Board for Covenant House PA she has raised more than $300,000 for homeless youth. McCabe also helped the facility safely keep its doors open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week at the height of the pandemic. For more than 10 years, she has been a volunteer leader for the 76-bed Covenant House Pennsylvania, an organization that helps children and youth, some who have aged out of the foster system, by providing housing and supportive services to youth facing homelessness. This assistance helps to transform their lives and put them on a path to independence. The transitional housing, education and job assistance provide hope for young people overcoming homelessness and who have been a victim of human trafficking.
McCabe, Associate Broker, Senior VP and regional manager, has been licensed since 1997. She became a sales leader for the company in 2015 and was appointed to the regional management team in 2018. McCabe is active in the community as the Vice Chairman of the Main Line Chamber of Commerce and the Executive Board of Covenant House of Pennsylvania. Born and raised in Villanova, she is a mother of five and a 22X marathon runner.
