The House that Tech Built
House That Tech Built is back, and stronger than ever in 2020! Austin Habitat for Humanity is partnering with community-minded tech companies looking to give back through sponsorships and team building volunteer opportunities. We’ve had so much interest for this specific project, we are building TWO houses, one in the Spring and one in the Fall. SailPoint came on board this year in support of this same project, as a full home sponsor.
These homes are built and funded by tech companies and volunteers. This collaboration builds community within the tech-sector while addressing the growing need for affordable housing. Because of COVID-19 we weren’t able to complete the Spring home that we had started on, so we’ll be finishing that home along with the ATX Community Build sponsors and volunteers.

Vera & Family
Vera is a native Austinite who loves Texas and says she wanted to “kiss the ground” when she moved back from out of state. She is also a multigenerational caregiver, supporting family including two children and a young grandchild, and she believes owning a home would provide them with permanent roots and help her be a great role model for the entire family. But no matter how hard she worked at her job as a rural mail carrier, she was not able to afford to buy a home here. When she found out about Austin Habitat, she was so excited to get involved with the program! She’s now working on her sweat equity and has gotten her daughter involved as well! She’s grateful for the support of the Tech Build sponsors and excited for a place her family can call their own.
Thank you to our Tech & ATX Community sponsors!
