Building hope and homes for Houston's temporarily homeless
Established under the Greater Houston Builders Association (GHBA), HomeAid Houston joins HomeAid Dallas, as the second HomeAid America chapter in Texas. The chapter will help meet the needs of the Houston area's temporarily homeless in the counties of Brazoria, Montgomery, Fort Bend, Matagorda, Waller, Harris and Galveston.

Metropolitan Houston has a homeless population of approximately between 12,000 and 14,000 individuals, with 40 percent representing women and children, on any given day, according to the Coalition for the Homeless of Houston and Harris County. "There is a critical need for more services for homeless families, especially during inclement weather," states Kathleen Stadler, President, HomeAid Houston Chapter. "The Greater Houston area has far more people in acute need than resources available in the community-- and I am confident that our HomeAid Houston chapter will make a very positive impact by filling the gap in shelter services."

The plight of temporarily homeless individuals stems from a variety of causes including domestic violence, unemployment, catastrophic illness or crisis pregnancies. HomeAid Houston will be focused on giving these individuals a better chance at a new start. To help accomplish this task, Kathryn "Toy" Wood, CEO of the Greater Houston Builders Association, will work with Houston area-based builders as they begin the site selection process for their first shelter project.

"Beazer has been the driving force behind many HomeAid shelter projects across the nation. And we're proud to strengthen that commitment by being able to help HomeAid Houston with its first project," stated Kurt Watzek, Beazer Homes Houston division president.

David Weekley, CEO of David Weekley Homes, the second largest privately owned homebuilder in America, is equally enthusiastic, "HomeAid is a charitable organization that the building industry can really rally around. Many of us have been so blessed by our industry that it's great to be able to give back in a way that allows us to use our unique talents and gifts, so that more families can live in safe, dignified environments."
