Newmark Homes donates model home furniture to HomeAid agencies
Newmark Homes, a leading name in new home development in Houston and the United States, recently donated furniture and décor from a five-bedroom model home to two HomeAid Houston homeless care agencies. The model house was for sale in the market because the parish it was in was sold out.
Vita Living collected a dining table and six chairs, a kitchen table and four chairs, three bar stools and patio furniture, including a coffee table, two patio chairs and a sofa.
The Fort Bend Women’s Center collected four couches, coffee tables and end tables, four beds, multi-accent chairs, a foosball table, a game table and chairs, and a coffee table. Decor included pillows, cookbooks, lamps, and knickknacks.
“Newmark is a proud longtime HomeAid hero and we attend the annual HALO lunches,” said Jeff Dye, president of Newmark Homes’ organizations or programs they support. We are very excited that Vita Living and the Fort Bend Women’s Center were able to use this gently used furniture. “
Vita Living is a 37-year-old non-profit organization that provides comprehensive long-term care and support for adults and children with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD). The agency strives to make a conscious effort to create a happy and healthy environment for the residents they serve. The agency has 18 group houses that support up to 78 residents. Each house is designed to meet the everyday challenges of people with IDD such as bathing, eating and mobility. Still, they’re real homes with bedrooms, living areas, kitchens, and backyards that create a warm, home-like environment.
Since 1980, FBWC, the premier provider of free, integral support services for survivors in Fort Bend County, has helped nearly 50,000 domestic violence and sexual assault survivors recover from the trauma of their abuse and lead independent lives free of violence and fear.
For the past decade, the FBWC center has been helping survivors with increasingly complex emotional, psychological, and physical needs. Many have experienced abuse and traumatic brain injury due to head trauma and / or strangulation throughout their lives. 97% are at or below the federal poverty line and most have at least one child to support.
“HomeAid is grateful to Newmark Homes for this unique and generous offer to furnish two deserving agencies with everyday furniture,” said Carole Brady, General Manager of HomeAid Houston. “Newmark has long been a supporter of not just HomeAid but the community at large. This is testament to their dedication to improving the lives of the less fortunate.”
HomeAid Houston, a Greater Houston Builders Association (501 (c) (3)) non-profit organization founded in 2003, has completed 26 construction projects, 10 connect projects, and 41 maintenance projects. These projects have added more than $ 16 million in housing and renovation to the community and affected more than 1,800 beds for men, women, children and veterans affected by homelessness. HomeAid partners together look after over 46,000 people each year.
