HomeAid Houston, a 501 (c) (3) charity of the Greater Houston Builders AssociationAngel 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. HomeAid has facilitated new construction by partnering with two local builders who are helping to build three duplexes, the first phase of a planned 9 duplex project consisting of 18 units.
HomeAid is working with Builder Captains Eric Maksym with Starter Homes of Texas and John Wynn with Vanguard Builders who will provide the construction. These duplexes will house four youth working in the Angel Reach program, providing 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.
“This commitment by Starter Homes of Texas and Vanguard Builders is life-changing for these kids in the Angel Reach program,” said Nicole Keown, president 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 commitment to such a huge undertaking.”
