Angel Reach, a Conroe area non-profit that serves homeless youth who have aged out of Foster Care or were released early from the program, is receiving a much-needed addition in housing for their campus. On October 1 at 10 a.m. Angel Reach, the developer Signorelli Company, the builder teams and HomeAid Houston, a 501 (c) (3) charity of the Greater Houston Builders Association will be breaking ground to mark the beginning of construction on three Angel Reach duplexes, the first phase of a planned 9 duplex project consisting of 18 units that will eventually total 24 buildings. These three duplexes will house four youth working in the Angel Reach program. The duplexes will provide a safe, nurturing environment that will also enhance the continuing education path the youth are on to acquire GED/HS diplomas, higher education and or life skills training.
Several Builder Captains have committed to the first stage of construction. They are Eric Maksym with Starter Homes of Texas, John Winn with Vanguard Builders, and First America Homes the building division of the Signorelli Company.
“This commitment by the project’s developer Signorelli Company and all the building partners is life-changing for these kids in the Angel Reach program,” said Carole Brady, executive director of HomeAid. “Their generosity will help keep kids at-risk off the street and on the road to a brighter future. We can’t thank them enough for their philanthropic spirit.”
Attending the groundbreaking will include, Jean Radach, Angel Reach’s executive director; Charles Maurice, Angel Reach chairman of the board; Danny Signorelli, Signorelli Company president and CEO; Nicole Keown, HomeAid Houston vice president; Carole Brady, HomeAid executive director; Eric Maksym, Starter Homes of Texas’s Construction Manager; Aimee Bertrand, GHBA executive vice president and CEO and representatives from the agencies, builders and the City of Conroe.
