For nearly 60 years, The Women’s Home has been helping women build whole lives. We offer women – many who are homeless and lack job skills or education due to substance abuse and mental illness – a home and a model of care called Whole Life®.
On Thursday, June 15, 2017, nearly40 supporters of The Women’s Home gathered for an exclusive first look at the Mabee WholeLife® Service Center, The Home’s newest initiative to help local families grow and thrive. Those who attended the Hard Hat Tour experienced firsthand all the amenities the Center will provide to residents of the surrounding neighborhood including those in residence at Adele and Ber Pieper Family Place and Jane Cizik Garden Place. Guests had the opportunity to sign one of the building’s support beams and become part of the building itself.
Special guests in attendance were:
Tom McCasland, Director, City of Houston Housing and Community Development Department
Melody Barr, Deputy Assistant Director, Public Services/Public Facilities at City of Houston-Housing and Community Development
Andrea Smith, Financial Analyst, City of Houston Housing and Community Development Department
Kathryn Turner, Loan Officer, Central Region, Corporation for Supportive Housing
Yasmin Huebinger, Vice President, Capital One, N.A.
Judge Steven Kirkland, Harris County 334th Civil Court and Board member of WholeLife Services, Inc.
Jo Lightsey and Linda Whatley of the Old Spring Branch Civic Association
The dedication of the Mabee WholeLife® Service Center will be October 26, 2017. For more information on how you can support the Center and help build whole lives, please contact Bethany Fields at firstname.lastname@example.org
