First America Homes, the homebuilding division of the Signorelli Company, is partnering with local nonprofits HomeAid Houston and Family Promise of Lake Houston to construct a day center for homeless families in the Greater Houston area.
The center, dubbed “The Promise House,” will provide individual counseling and mentoring services, administrative office space, and higher education and training classes for area families in need.
Officials noted the 5,800-square-foot facility will be located near the intersection of FM 1960 and Wilson Road in Humble. Construction is set to begin June 14.
Jessica Penney, executive director of Family Promise of Lake Houston, said The Promise House is being built to help local families in need of support.
“We strive to give families the resources and support they need to keep their families together, while helping them to heal and work together to gain their independence from poverty and homelessness,” Penney said. “We are thankful to First America Homes and HomeAid Houston for stepping up to the plate and helping these families during their toughest times.”
Additionally, families visiting The Promise House will have access to bath facilities, a family room, a teaching kitchen, a playroom and a dining room. Families also have access to individual case management, weekly goal-setting and life-skills classes, a GED certificate program, an individualized education program, and parenting and money management classes. www.fplh.org/the-promise-house
