HomeAid Houston paid tribute to Greg Tomlinson, outgoing 2015 HomeAid president and president of Builders Post -Tension at the recent Greater Houston Builders Association Forecast Luncheon held at Hilton Americas Hotel.   Before a crowd of his peers numbering nearly 1000, Cindy Hinson, HomeAid's incoming president, and director of community affairs for Lennar/Village Builders shared Tomlinson's accomplishments and presented him with a photo collage of projects he led. 

As president of HomeAid Houston in 2015, in addition to running Builders Post-Tension,  Tomlinson led the HomeAid construction team to the completion and dedication of a 7100 square foot cottage for the homeless mothers and children of Texas Baptist Children’s Home, with Builder Captain Ryland Homes. 

During his term, HomeAid also completed and dedicated a 4200 square foot Family Day Center for Fort Bend Family Promise, with Builder Captain  Long Lake Limited and broke ground on a 8100 square foot cottage for the homeless children of Boys and Girls Country in Hockley, with Builder Captain  Partners in Building.  HomeAid anticipates dedicating that structure this year. 

Tomlinson was also instrumental in the effort to complete and dedicate two HomeAid Care remodeling projects; one, in partnership with the GHBA’s Custom Builders Council, for Casa de Esperanza and another for the Krause Children’s Center, with Builder Captain Brandon Lynch of Keechi Creek Builders.

"Greg has a gift for inspiring those around him, by setting an example of compassion and humility," said Bette Moser, executive director of HomeAid.  "He is a true professional within the homebuilding business.  We can't thank him enough for donating his time throughout 2015 and the many years before that, for his hard work in helping to make HomeAid a successful organization." 

Since its inception 13 years ago, HomeAid has added 561 beds to Houston's homeless community and their projects have served 22,124 people.  This translates into over 1 million nights of sleep provided, since 2003.  For more information on HomeAid Houston visit www.homeaidhouston.org or call 281-970-8970.
