Valet Living, pioneer of the doorstep collection amenity and innovator in turn services, maintenance support and pet solutions, now services over one million apartment homes. Valet Living has been the nationwide leader in the multifamily industry since its inception in 1995 and is the first service provider in its class to reach this accomplishment. To celebrate this milestone achievement, Valet Living is giving back to both the community and to its valued clients who were an integral part of helping Valet Living reach this amazing milestone.
As a Bronze National Partner of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, Valet Living will donate $10,000 to the St. Jude Walk/Run to End Childhood Cancer. The mission of St. Jude is to advance cures, and means of prevention, for pediatric catastrophic diseases through research and treatment. Consistent with the vision of its founder Danny Thomas, no child is denied treatment based on race, religion or a family’s ability to pay. “While there are many factors that define a successful walk/run, our ability to partner with local businesses is the foundation to them all,” said Richard H. Sites, Ed.D. St. Jude Walk/Run Chair. “Valet Living is such a partner and one of the Tampa Bay Walk/Run’s best examples of the benefits of local business participation.”
“Community involvement and volunteerism are integral components of the culture at Valet Living,” said President and CEO of Valet Living, Shawn Handrahan. “We have built a great partnership with St. Jude throughout the years and are proud to be able to make this donation as we celebrate our historic accomplishment of reaching one million apartment homes.”
In addition to donating $10,000 to St. Jude, Valet Living is also giving back to its valued clients. Valet Living is offering the first 100 new apartment communities that launch Valet Living Doorstep 10% off its headline rate.
“We are so proud of achieving this goal, and we will continue to reach new heights with Valet Living and Valet Giving by giving back to the communities we serve,” said Handrahan. “We strive each day to delight our clients and our residents. Giving back is our way of saying ‘thank you’ to those who have helped us get to one million apartment homes and encouraging those who want to join us in setting the standard for residential living.”
Valet Living recently acquired Atlanta-based company ChoreMate and has expanded beyond doorstep collection to offer turn service, maintenance support and pet solutions. The mission of Valet Living is to set the standard for those seeking excellence in a property management partner, while continuously evolving the processes, re-defining the language and setting the benchmarks that are universally recognized and used across the multifamily housing industry. Additionally, Valet Living will be introducing new resident-facing amenities as it continues its commitment to provide unparalleled services for both property managers and residents.

About St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital:
St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is leading the way the world understands, treats and cures childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases.

St. Jude freely shares the breakthroughs it makes, and every child saved at St. Jude means doctors and scientists worldwide can use that knowledge to save thousands more children. Families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing and food—because all a family should worry about is helping its child live.
