The Home Builders Association of Greater Austin celebrated the completion of its 2020 Benefit Home located in the Steiner Ranch area at 12512 Simmental Drive, Austin, during an Oct. 7 ribbon-cutting ceremony. Annually, a sponsoring builder partners with the HBA to construct a home for charity. This year, Lennar Homes took on the project under its luxury brand, Village Builders. Proceeds from the sale of the 2020 Benefit Home will be donated to HomeAid Austin, a nonprofit organization dedicated to building new lives for Austin individuals experiencing homelessness, according to a press release from the HBA.

“This COVID-19 crisis has only exacerbated the needs of our neighbors in Austin experiencing homelessness,” Lennar Homes Division President Charlie Coleman said in the release.
