Since the founding of our company, giving back to the communities where we build has been a core value. We are invested in not only providing high quality homes, but lending a helping hand wherever we can.
Each year, teams in our new home communities throughout the Dallas/Fort Worth and Houston areas select a non-profit organization, school, or ministry that makes a big impact locally. Each team is given $2,500 to donate as they see fit. Here are a few examples of how our teams and communities chose to give back in 2021!
The Cloverleaf Crossing Townhomes team in Mesquite, TX chose to give back to the Mesquite ISD Education Foundation. This non-profit is dedicated to enriching and enhancing the education of Mesquite's 40,000 students, providing funds for projects and programs outside the regular school district's budget. In 2021, Cloverleaf Crossing donated $2,500, which the organization used to purchase bikes for 20 exemplary students at Tosch Elementary School. You can watch this news segment all about it!
Bozeman Farms Estates in Wylie, TX invested their resources in Youth With a Mission Wylie, a local chapter of an international organization that is dedicated to the mobilization of young people to spread the gospel. The team's $2,500 donation was used to purchase a computer and tablet for client intake, charting and other administrative functions of the local pregnancy resource center.
Heartland in Heartland, TX was inspired to help the Say Never Network, which works to eliminate the overpopulation of pets in underprivileged communities, and works with city shelters to spay and neuter those pets. The $2,500 went to grants and donations that helped to reduce the cost of spay/neuter services for those who cannot afford it.

I felt like everyone we interacted with from Doug to Angela to Jim understood that, for us, this was a big purchase. Even though they must deal with customers like us everyday and be kind of accustomed to it, they answered every question with patience and seemed to really care that we felt comfortable with everything. I really appreciated that.
