HomeAid Houston - Helping to build transitional shelters for the homeless in Houston

2014 Project Playhouse

Coventry Homes / Plantation Homes Unveil 2014 HomeAid Playhouse

Fairy tales do come true when it comes to the HomeAid Houston annual fundraiser, Project Playhouse. Coventry Homes/Plantation Homes (MHI) and HomeAid unveiled the 2014 playhouse design at the March Greater Houston Builders Association's (GHBA) board meeting revealing a "storybook" style castle. "Coventry Kids Castle" is being built by Coventry Homes/Plantation Homes with donated materials and labor by GHBA members.

"Their creation is a child's dream come true," said Jennifer Taylor, president of HomeAid Houston. "The Coventry Kids Castle will turn a child's backyard into their own personal kingdom evoking images of princes, princesses, knights and dragons."

HomeAid Houston, a 501 c 3 charity, is partnering with Coventry Homes/Plantation Homes and the Houston Astros on this 8th annual fundraiser that raises money to build transitional housing for Houston's homeless men, women and children. The playhouse will be visiting several "kingdoms" including Lake-A-Palooza in Towne Lake on April 13th, the GHBA's New Home & Remodeling Show at Reliant Center on June 7th and 8th and on its final destination at Minute Maid Park from June 24th through July 2nd.

The Coventry Homes/Plantation Homes team includes James Miller, regional president; Paul Blackburn, division president; Jason C. Gilley, project manager; Brian Grigsby, production manager; Gabe Zazueta, purchasing manager; Jamie Patterson, marketing director; Taylor Urban, architect and Jaime Virkus, marketing manager.

"We are honored and excited to take part in HomeAid's annual fundraiser," said James Miller. "It is a great opportunity for our staff and vendors to come together for such a good cause."

The Coventry Kids Castle will include features such as air conditioning, lighting, television, gaming equipment and professional interior design elements that will reflect the playhouse theme.

MHI and HomeAid have a long, productive history together that began in 2009. The company spearheaded the construction of two homes, each over 6500 sq. ft., for Gracewood, a Children at Heart Ministry in the Spring Branch area. Each home was designed for five families facing homelessness due to a crisis situation.
