Cindy HinsonThe GHBA is proud to announce that Cindy Hinson, director of community affairs for Lennar/Village Builders, is heading up the Benefit Homes Project for 2018.

In this lead role, Cindy will be directing the search for two builder/developer teams for 2019. She will also help the Benefit Homes Committee coordinate key events throughout the year including groundbreakings, vendor appreciation luncheons and ribbon cuttings. She is also a contact point for the 2018 builder/developer teams throughout their construction process.

“I was humbled to be asked to chair the Benefit Homes Project which is an effective way for Houston homebuilders and land developers to use their expertise and resources to give back to the community,” said Cindy.


“Many generous and talented individuals have worked diligently over the past 38 years to build this program. I am honored to continue their legacy forward,” she added.

Each year, two homes are built with donated materials, labor and services by GHBA members. The homes are then sold at market value and the majority of the proceeds benefit the two local charities, HomeAid Houston and Operation Finally Home.

Since the project began 38 years ago, $10 million has been raised.

Cindy has focused her involvement with the GHBA through her passion for charitable work. In 2010 she was instrumental in securing Village Builders as a Benefit Home builder and is a board member and past president of HomeAid Houston.

As director of community affairs, Cindy manages the Product Development Department and launches new communities and products to achieve profitability and timing goals. She establishes processes for effective communication between purchasing, marketing, sales and construction, and also implements and supervises Lennar/Village Builders’ Focused Act of Caring Program that builds partnerships with charities and other organizations to strengthen the community.
