GHBA Benefit Homes Project

More than four decades ago, the GHBA board of directors envisioned a charitable project that would bring the generosity of builders, developers and vendors together to give back to Houston. After careful and thoughtful planning, the GHBA formed the Benefit Homes Project. The goal was to do what GHBA members do best—build quality homes. These homes would then be sold at market value for a profit. The majority of that profit would be donated to charity. The builders, developers, vendors and suppliers who participate are firm believers in the Benefit Homes Project mission: To ensure a brighter future for the community’s less fortunate, through the heart and hands of the homebuilding industry. If you ask them why this is important to them they will tell you, “Even in economically challenged times, men, women and children facing homelessness and our wounded veterans returning from service to our country need help more than ever.” This generosity reflects the commitment that Houston area builders and developers have to their community.
