New $4.8 Million Project Will Shelter Houston Homeless Women and Children
HomeAid Houston is gearing up to begin construction on a 30,000 sq. ft. facility for Volunteers of America (VOA) and a 7,400 sq. ft. residential shelter for Gracewood, projects worth collectively over $4 million. HomeAid Houston is a charity sponsored by the Greater Houston Builders Association that builds transitional housing for Houston’s homeless.
The VOA project, named Restoration Hill, is a $3.8 million project spearheaded by HomeAid Houston and builder captain Camden Builders. The facility will soon be home to 150 women and children in crisis. In addition to providing 150 beds, the Restoration Hill shelter will provide childcare, classrooms, a clinician’s space, meeting rooms and administrative offices. The facility is located north of downtown Houston on a 4-acre site.
Construction of the new Gracewood facility, a $1 million project, is located at 1617 Elmview Drive. It is being led by Legend Homes/Princeton Classic Homes and HomeAid Houston. It is the third and final shelter that completes that location’s campus. The new shelter will include housing for five mothers and their children as well as administrative, support services, and counseling offices.
HomeAid teams with GHBA builders to construct each project and GHBA vendors generously donate materials, labor and services.
