The Signorelli Co. and Angel Reach, a Conroe faith-based organization assisting youth ages 16 to 24, broke ground on Angel Reach Village on Oct. 1, according to a press release from the Signorelli Co. Phase 1 of the community, located off of Ninth Street in Conroe, will include 16 duplexes and 32 two-bedroom homes for those who have aged out of foster care, the release said.

“We were so excited when Signorelli Company took the lead on developing Angel Reach Village, committing $150,000 in donations along with full management and leadership to deliver the community,” Angel Reach Executive Director Jean Radach said in the release. “Ultimately, they share our same vision to empower these children to face the world and give them an opportunity to achieve success. As a leading developer in Montgomery County, the Signorelli Company is a cherished addition to the team.”

The community will be housed on 4 acres of land owned by Angel Reach, the release said. Phase 1 development is estimated to cost $2.65 million for homesite delivery and home build-out.

“We instantly jumped on the occasion to help children in need through the development of Angel Reach Village,” Signorelli Co. President and CEO Danny Signorelli said in the release. “Angel Reach is a top-notch organization, and with so many at-risk youth and foster families, we felt it was a natural partnership.”

Fundraising efforts for the homes to be constructed have begun, the release said. The company is seeking additional building partners and donors to help build as many homes as possible in the next 12 months. A timeline for completion was not available as of time of publication.
