Newsmakers for Feb. 10: Houston Habitat seeks owners of Harvey-damaged homes

HOUSTON – Houston Habitat for Humanity has traditionally been for first-time homeowners who need help landing that first home. Now, the “Almost Home” program is available to those whose homes were damaged by Hurricane Harvey.

Allison Hay, executive director of Habitat for Humanity, extended an invitation to homeowners still dealing with Harvey damage.

“We’ll work with you," she said. "You don’t have to be a first time home buyer this time. We’ll bring you into our program. We’ll let you go through our process. You’ll be in a home that’s safe and stable.”

On this week's Houston Newsmakers, get the details on how to sign up to purchase a home or to volunteer your time and talent for a great program in our community.
