HomeAid Houston, a 501 (c)( 3) charity of the Greater Houston Builders Association has been joined by Cornerstone Development Group as the Owner’s Representative of one of HomeAid’s construction projects. The project is a dental clinic that is being constructed in the faith-based nonprofit Hope Center Houston. The center offers homeless men and women a safe space, resources and a caring community.
“The challenges the homeless in our community face are astounding,” said Nicole Jacob, president of HomeAid. “The dental clinic will help give them a better quality of life and in turn, can aid in their journey to secure employment. We are honored and excited to partner with Cornerstone Development Group as they have joined the team with enthusiasm and a wealth of knowledge in development and construction management.”
Cornerstone co-founders Jascha Patton, who heads up leadership and business strategy and Jeff Kastendieck, who handles operations and business development bring over 30 years of combined experience in development and construction to every project.
Their expertise in managing construction within all areas has been a key factor in the ease in which their team is completing an in-take area, three dental stations and equipment storage spaces, in a relatively seamless process on the second floor within Hope Center.
“When we became aware of the Hope Center vision to provide such a critical service to their clients, Jeff and I knew we had to help,” said Patton. “Offering our services helps to fill our sense of purpose while also strengthening our ties to the local community. This was an easy step because our team has experience in managing the development and construction process for projects of all sizes, from start to finish. We analyze each phase along the way for the perfect delivery whether it’s a large medical or retail space, or a small remodel, our flexible approach adapts to the client’s needs at every stage. It is an honor to help on this project that will make a difference in the lives of individuals facing tremendous challenges.”
Cornerstone Development Group delivers Owner’s Representative and Construction Management services at a flat rate, providing transparency and consistent results. Services include performing market analysis and financial modeling, identifying and managing pitfalls, capturing cost and time efficiencies, and driving project engagement and alignment across stakeholders.
Hope Center Houston provides breakfast, lunch, laundry, showers, and clothing in addition to medical, mental health and spiritual needs. Individuals also have access to life-skills classes, counseling, AA and referrals to support efforts to transition off the streets.
More than 3,000 homeless individuals were served in the first three years of the Center. Several hundred made significant strides in overcoming addictions, acquiring jobs and finding affordable housing. In August 2019, they officially became Hope Center Houston and acquired a new facility on Peakwood in the FM 1960 area, allowing them to provide additional services and opportunities for supporting agencies to come alongside their mission.
