The Greater Houston Builders Association (GHBA) is the largest home builders association in Texas, and the third-largest nationwide. Cabinets & Designs’ President Maria Frank is an active member of the GHBA Remodelers Council; in her role as Education Chair of TRC, Maria helps promote excellence and professionalism within the organization, and awareness of the Remodelers Council to the general public. Further, the Council’s yearly calendar includes many events that are designed to bring members of the remodeling community together to lend a helping hand to worthy organizations in and around Houston. One such event is the annual Charity Project Work Day, which will be held this year on Saturday, April 25th, benefitting the Family Time Crisis & Counseling Center.
“We are grateful for the opportunity to give back to our community,” said C&D Maria Frank. “It’s a great feeling, to be able to reach out and help someone in your own community. The Charity Project Work Day will be a lot of fun, hard work, and at the end of the day we’ll have helped families with a true need.”
Family Time Crisis & Counseling Center provides an outreach program and accessible services to families and individuals in crisis through counseling, crisis intervention, information and referral, and shelter. In addition to their 24-hour crisis helpline, Family Time provides legal advocacy, legal referrals and crisis intervention services, and assistance in obtaining needed services for victims including transportation, housing, and employment. They provide shelter to victims and their children, family counseling, and aid to victims of domestic violence; Family Time provides counseling for individuals and families, as well as parenting and anger-management classes.
GHBA and Remodelers Council members will be donning tool belts and work boots on Saturday, April 25 to help improve the lives of those Houstonians who rely on the services provided by Family Time. GHBA will also be collecting donations of food items for the shelter, including the following:
Tuna, canned tomatoes, canned tomato sauce, canned spaghetti sauce, canned beans (variety, no green beans), canned vegetables (no corn), canned soup, mayonnaise, salad dressing, dry drink mix, kids’ snacks and drinks, paper goods (paper towels, tissues, disinfectant wipes), and wash cloths.
