Compuware Welcomes The McQueen Family To Their New Home

DETROIT, Sept. 25, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Compuware, (Nasdaq:CPWR), the technology performance company, today announced that the McQueen family of Detroit will receive a fully furnished new home as part of Project: Welcome Home. The project is Compuware's initiative to put a deserving family into a new house in time for the holidays along with Habitat for Humanity Detroit, Art Van Furniture and The Parade Company.

The McQueens, who have two young boys, ages 11 months and 3 years, were chosen from a number of families who applied through Project: Welcome Home for Habitat Detroit's homeownership program. Orlando McQueen works as a Patient Mobility Assistant at Henry Ford Hospital, and Kyomonique McQueen works at Henry Ford Continuing Care as a Certified Nursing Assistant. In addition to fully furnishing the home, the first two years of the mortgage will be covered, enabling the McQueens to apply that money toward other major life milestones.

"Compuware and its employees work hard to make an impact beyond business and technology," said Compuware Chief Executive Officer Bob Paul. "In little and big ways, for communities, individuals and businesses, we make technology make a difference. And Project: Welcome Home is a great example of how we do it. Working together, Compuware, a host of volunteers and a few key partners have truly made a difference for a great family. They now have a better footing toward a brighter future."

More than 100 families applied online at the Compuware iWish4Detroit web site for this opportunity. Habitat for Humanity Detroit and members of Compuware's executive team evaluated the applicants; with Habitat for Humanity Detroit making the final decision based on the program's qualifying criteria.

"This is an incredible opportunity for our family, and we are so happy we've been chosen to receive the Compuware house," said Orlando and Kyomonique McQueen. "We've lived on Detroit's East Side for years and have watched Habitat's work in the Morningside Commons community —we can't believe we'll be living in one of those homes in just a few months. Thanks to Compuware and all of the people who have helped us to make this dream a reality."
