HomeAid Houston has provided assistance to the Mission of Yahweh on a recent renovation project that, when completed at the end of the year, will provide 19 new bedrooms which will house 40 additional women and children at this Spring Branch area shelter. HomeAid is a 501 c 3 charity sponsored by the Greater Houston Builders Association (GHBA).
HomeAid assisted the agency by establishing contacts with GHBA members for discounted or donated materials that were necessary to complete the renovation of two community bathrooms and an ADA bathroom.
The Mission of Yahweh is a faith-based shelter that empowers, enriches and restores the lives of homeless women and children and provides outreach services to low income families.
MOY has served homeless women and their children since 1961. The doors are always open for families in crisis. The agency not only gives food, clothing and shelter, but also is committed to helping residents to become self-sufficient, productive members of society. The Mission supports more than 2,300 residential stays each month. They also provide thousands of Houston/Carverdale-area residents with donations of food, clothing, school supplies and other necessities.
“This is the second project HomeAid has worked on with the Mission of Yahweh,” said Mark Welch, president of HomeAid Houston. “The Mission is practically an icon in the middle of a Spring Branch area neighborhood. Its 50 plus years of service and caring is an inspiration to everyone involved with HomeAid. We can’t thank the vendors enough for their contributions.”
Vendors contributing to the project included: Ferguson Supply - plumbing fixtures; Bison/Stock Supply – doors; Lighting Inc - light fixtures and Dal-Tile Company donated all of the tile.
HomeAid Houston builds transitional housing for the homeless of Houston. Since 2003, HomeAid has completed 21 projects, adding 8.5 million in real estate to Houston’s homeless community. This has added over 400 beds, serving nearly 5000 homeless men women and children.
