Boys and Girls Country Cottage with Lennar/Village Builders

Lennar/Village Builders  and HomeAid are grateful to a long list of GHBA members who have donated materials and services for the cottage construction. “Our partnership with HomeAid Houston allows us to help provide a beautiful place to call home for some very deserving kids," said Marco Cordon.  "We are honored to be able provide our services and experience on this ambitious project."

Boys and Girls Country was established in 1971 as a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit charity whose mission is to change the lives of children from families in crisis by loving and nurturing them in a Christian home environment, raising them to become self-sustaining and contributing adults. Children are from the greater Houston area, which includes 13 counties. Located 35 miles northwest of Houston, Boys and Girls Country has capacity to serve 48 boys and 40 girls, ages 5-18, for a total of 88 children at any one time.

"The two most necessary, effective, intimate and important things we provide our kids, are Christian families and a Christian home," said Lou Palma. "Today's groundbreaking marks the first step in this amazing journey."
