HomeAid Houston recently joined forces with the GHBA’s Custom Builders Council (CBC), on a charity project to repair, repaint and provide some added tender loving care to one of the homes at Casa de Esperanza de los Nino’s (Casa) – the House of Hope for Children. The project was led by Matt Sneller with Sneller Custom Homes and Remodeling.
The CBC crew conducted a “work day: in September where more than 20 volunteers painted and performed minor repair work to bring new life to a home that has given countless children the only place they’ve ever really considered a home. HomeAid contributed $10,000 to the project and special underwriters included the Million Dollar Round Table Foundation, CommunityBank of Texas, Bison A Stock Building Supply Company and Spaceman Home & Office. General Electric provided a dishwasher, microwave, refrigerator, range and washer and dryer at a discount.
“HomeAid Houston and the Custom Builders Council teamed up to help this valuable organization that helps so many children facing devastating challenges,” said Matt Sneller with Sneller Custom Homes and Remodeling. “The CBC is proud to be a part of this effort, and we look forward to future work on the Casa de Esperanza home and to working on future HomeAid Houston projects.”
Casa de Esperanza strives to break the destructive cycle of child abuse by offering safe homes to children of families in crisis. The goal of Casa de Esperanza is to return physically and emotionally healthy children to stabilized homes where caregivers can safely provide daily care. Children receive comprehensive assessment and intervention services while in placement. Parents receive case management and referral services while their children are safely cared for. When family reunification is not possible, Casa de Esperanza is licensed to supervise long term foster care and adoptive placements.
