Habitat for Humanity

 Snap Food Drive

Many of our staff were again honored to attend and support this year’s Trinity Habitat for Humanity Benefit Luncheon in Fort Worth McIlvain staff members have volunteered for project builds over the years, and Kelli Strube has served on the Trinity Habitat Board since 2013. The need for safe and affordable housing for low-income families in Trinity Habitat’s four-county service area is overwhelming. Trinity builds homes in partnership with low-income families that earn between 30% and 60% of Area Median Income (AMI). Trinity Habitat families average 3 persons and on average earn $26,544 annually, placing them at 45% of AMI.

Most Habitat homes are about 1,150 square feet with three bedrooms, two bathrooms and a one-car garage and are built with high-quality materials to reduce future maintenance costs. Trinity Habitat is the sole lender for all mortgages, and funds are loaned at zero interest for 20 to 30 years. The average monthly mortgage payment is $400-$450, including homeowners insurance and property taxes.

North Texas SNAP

Snap Food Drive

Our firm was pleased to be a drop off location for the holiday SNAP food drive. North Texas SNAP is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization serving individuals 17 and older living with intellectual disabilities. In 1999, a group of parents frustrated by the fragmented social service system founded North Texas SNAP to provide a solid support system for their adult children living with intellectual disabilities. North Texas SNAP was built on the premise that all persons, regardless of their disability, have the right to enjoy the same range of life experiences in which others in their communities enjoy.

Community Blood Drive
