Houston Habitat Celebrates the Building of its 1,000th Home!
Houston Habitat for Humanity

September, 2015


 This fall, Houston Habitat welcomes back several build teams that have supported us throughout the years, and 3 special builds are taking place that we are really excited about. The return of Apache, Brentwood Baptist Church, Chevron, Houston 1st Baptist, Isla Carrol Turner Trust, Marathon Oil, and Wells Fargo kicks off the start of another build season as we look forward to building 9 more houses in the Harrel Park community, and 3 houses in the historic Settagast community. 

These builds include a Veteran’s Build, a home honoring Pope Francis, and a milestone build celebrating our 1,000th house! Houston Habitat is so excited that we have reached this milestone with Chevron as our partner for this commemorative project. Chevron, who has worked alongside numerous Partner Families for 17 consecutive years, generously stewarded the building a total of 32 full homes and 12 partial homes. 

Other teams supporting our builds this fall include Daikin, Kinkaid, Conoco Phillips, Dow, Columbia Pipeline, and Aramco. Join us as we move along the continuum of making Houston a place where everyone has a decent place to live! 

In celebration of our 1,000th House, we are dedicating our 2015 Building a Dream Breakfast to this momentous occasion. And on that same day, we plan to explore the impact housing has on our community with an Affordable Housing Symposium. We invite the media to cover these events:
