Home. It’s always been our safe space. And the past few months have proven it to be so much more. We’ve been reminded that home is the heart of family activities – from sharing meals, laughs and stories… to working from the kitchen table. It’s not just a place for shelter and rest, it’s where life happens.
It’s hard to imagine not having a house to come home to. But there are many people in our community who suffer from homelessness. That’s why for every home sold in Lakes of Bella Terra, a percentage of that sale is donated towards building new lives for America’s homeless families and individuals through housing and community outreach.
Lakes of Bella Terra is proud to be a part of the The HomeAid Heroes program by HomeAid Houston, a 501(c)(3) charity sponsored by the Greater Houston Builders Association.
HomeAid identifies long term, stable homeless care providers who need additional capacity and pairs them with GHBA builders, vendors and suppliers who donate their time, materials and labor to help build transitional homeless shelters. Here are some of the people that agencies of HomeAid Houston serve:
- Youth who have aged out of foster care
- Women in Crisis Pregnancy
- Victims of Domestic Violence and Spousal Desertion
- Children who have become homeless due to a family crisis
- Mentally Challenged
- Adults Living with HIV/AIDS
- Families & individuals who are homeless as a result of job loss or catastrophic illness
- Individuals and families suffering from drug and alcohol abuse
- Male and female Veterans
Since 2003, HomeAid Houston has added and/or impacted over 1500 beds for the Houston homeless community, providing over a million nights of sleep for over 21,000 men, women and children. The agency is currently working on several major construction projects as well as many HomeAid Care projects.
