What began with coaching youth league sports at an early age continued with community service including Habitat for Humanity, volunteering at the local food bank and serving on the board for Hunter’s Harvest encouraging hunters to donate excess wild game to local shelters.

Leading by example is a philosophy that Craig believes in and lives by. He says this philosophy has served him well in his business and in his personal life. Actually, this is how Craig first became involved with HomeAid Houston by selecting HomeAid as one of several local charitable organizations where he could donate money from each mortgage loan closing in the name of his customer. This was his closing gift to his customer – a charitable donation in their name to a worthwhile organization like HomeAid.
