Dozens of HomeAid Heroes were honored before a crowd of nearly 750 attendees at the Greater Houston Builders Association (GHBA), Mid-Year Forecast Luncheon recently.  HomeAid Heroes is a program that offers builders, developers, remodelers, mortgage companies, title companies and trades an opportunity to give to HomeAid by donating a pre-set amount per transaction, whether it’s the sale of a home, a lot, a window or the closing of a mortgage.

 “These companies and individuals who make generous contributions are our HomeAid Heroes,” explained Lisa Clark, HomeAid board member and longtime Hero.  “They continue to raise the bar throughout the industry with their unwavering commitment and support to better the community.”

These funds will help HomeAid with its mission - to build new lives for homeless families and individuals through housing and community outreach.  The honorees were presented with an appreciation plaque. 

The HomeAid Hero Program has grown rapidly since it began just four years ago from two Heroes to the current list of 24 companies and individuals. The funds are allocated to HomeAid construction projects and for smaller HomeAid Care projects.

“HomeAid was proud to honor these generous companies and individuals before their industry peers,” said Bette Moser, executive director of HomeAid Houston.  “It is inspiring to see the growing list of Heroes throughout the past four years.”
