Not only do we live in an exciting and innovative city, we live in a unique community full of companies who call Austin home, whether they’ve been here forever or have just put down roots. With all of this incredible growth comes more opportunities to build affordable homes for hardworking members of our Austin community. Help us celebrate this growth and the patchwork of unique companies that make up this great city by joining the Community Build!

Tracey is a single mother working hard every day to make a better life for her two children. She cares about the Austin community and currently works as an assistant property manager for Foundation Communities, a nonprofit that provides housing and resources to those in need. She has lived in Austin her entire life and has watched the city transform and grow. With this growth, she has been priced out of decent housing that can safely accommodate her family. She now lives in an apartment in a part of town where she does not feel safe. They live on the fifth floor of a building with a frequently out of order elevator and she does not allow her children to play outside because of the crime rates in their area. Tracey loves the Habitat model, and she feels blessed for the opportunity to be able to help build someone else’s dream, while they in return help her build hers. She is proud of herself for how hard she has worked to get to this point and cannot wait to open her own front door and step into her future with her family. She wants all the Community Build sponsors, donors, and volunteers to know that their work is appreciated. Every donation, hammer swung, or nail put in place is a small step towards the end goal and means a huge amount to someone like her and her family. She is beyond grateful for this opportunity.
