Rockspring Capital is teaming up with Houston Habitat next month to build a new home for a deserving family. This project will be a tremendous success with the help of employees, family and friends.
Houston Habitat is the local affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International. Established in 1987, Houston Habitat has built more than 840 homes and served more than 2,800 Houstonians as Family Partners. It welcomes more than 5,000 volunteers each year to help out with home building, clerical work and retail.
Houston Habitat works to eliminate substandard housing by helping hard-working families purchase simple, decent homes in which to live. This is possible through corporate sponsors, individual donors and foundation grants that fund the majority of construction costs on each home. The Family Partners are approved and qualify for down payment assistance and a zero-interest mortgage carried by Houston Habitat for Humanity.
We are very excited about building this new home and the life-changing experience it will be for a local family. We look forward making a big difference and sharing an update on this wonderful experience in the next Rockspring Report.
