HomeAid Houston, a 501 c 3 charity of the Greater Houston Builders Association (GHBA), is partnering with GHBA’s Remodelers Council (RMC) on a remodel project for SEARCH Homeless Services’ House of Tiny Treasures. SEARCH’s HTT, which was Houston’s first nationally accredited early childhood development center dedicated to serving homeless children and families, will be getting a remodel of their administrative area within the HTT Facility. House of Tiny Treasures’ mission is to provide comprehensive early care, education, and therapeutic services to assist homeless children and families build stable, functional lives. To be eligible for the program, families with pre-school age children must be homeless and the parents must be actively working on improving their education, job skills, or employment.
To launch the project, permitting needed to be completed which can often delay the actual construction. HomeAid was grateful for the services of C3 Building Solutions, a permit and development consulting and expediting company that offered to drive the permitting application process. Kristal Casey, the CEO/Chief Visioneering Officer of the company stepped in to spearhead the efforts.
“The C3 Unicorns were able to secure design professionals who graciously donated their services including Rivers Barden Architects,” said Casey. “We worked in conjunction with the design professionals and officials at the Houston Permitting Center to obtain all approvals and permits. We are always honored to be of service to HomeAid and non-profits in our community. Giving back is at the core of our corporate model and GHBA makes it fun and easy to give back to the community.”
HomeAid is also grateful for the dedication by members of the GHBA Remodelers Council who have committed to the construction phase. These partners include Will Cole with Divine Renovation; Moe Toofan with Texas Building & Remodeling; Jackson Gillette with Craftsmanship By John; Scooter Nicholson with BMC and Melanie Heinrich with TriFection Remodeling and Construction.
A very special thanks also goes out to donors Builders First Solutions/BMC, Wise Design Services and Toner Home Matters.
SEARCH Homeless Services provides hope, opportunity, and transformation to homeless men, women, and children. SEARCH grew out of an ecumenical group of churches and synagogues who believed that individuals facing homelessness not only need a bed and a meal, they need a future. SEARCH’s services are designed to help individuals create and sustain stable, productive futures.
Since 2003, HomeAid has completed 77 projects, adding or impacting over 1800 beds, that translates into over 1.3 million nights of sleep and a valued added in housing and improvements of over $16 million. For more information on HomeAid Houston, visit www.homeaidhouston.org or call 281-970-8970.
