Thirteen years after HomeAid Houston's first project for Wellsprings Village that included the construction of 6 new cottages, HomeAid Houston returned for a second project. Along with the Greater Houston Builders Association's Remodelers Council and Greymark Construction, HomeAid Houston renovated and refreshed the original 6 cottages. The project included outdoor projects, such as painting several cottages' exterior, installing new gutters, repairing the roofs, and landscaping. The project also included interior projects, such as replacing the existing mirrors and vanity lights, adding overhead lighting, replacing window and door trim, and installing 6 dishwashers and 2 refrigerators.
Wellsprings Village provides safe and stable housing for women facing homelessness, fleeing domestic violence situations, or recovering from the devastation caused by substance abuse, poverty, or illiteracy. The Wellsprings Village campus consists of eight facilities, including housing and administrative space. Housing is supplemented with services and programs, giving residents the opportunity to become empowered and self-sufficient. Services include counseling, job skills training, educational programs, and career workshops. In time, these tools help break the cycle of homelessness, abuse, poverty, addiction, and illiteracy, as well as increase the resident's self-worth and self-determination.
