Star of Hope was awarded a $500,000 Affordable Housing Program (AHP)
grant this year from Texas Capital Bank and FHLB Dallas, assisting in
the construction of the 48-acre campus. The campus will provide services
to up to 180 single women and 150 families. Star of Hope’s former Women
and Family Emergency Shelter and the Transitional Living Center have
been consolidated on the Cornerstone CommunitySM campus to
become the new Women and Family Development Center.
“Here we will serve up to 600 women and children, with a full spectrum
of basic services, counseling, programs for substance abuse recovery,
GED and educational opportunities, job skills training and independent
living readiness,” said Star of Hope President and CEO Hank Rush.
In 2017, FHLB Dallas awarded $7 million in AHP grants to 19 affordable
housing projects. The grants will help create 1,108 new or rehabilitated
housing units. Of the total amount, Texas was awarded $3,419,168 for 722
“Texas Capital Bank supports Houston and the homeless women who need the
services that Star of Hope provides on this transformational campus,”
said Effie Dennison, senior vice president and director of Community
Development and Corporate Social Responsibility at Texas Capital Bank.
“Many Houstonians will be able to return to living productive lives,
thanks to this grant.”
Since 1990, more than $254 million in AHP and AHP set-aside grants have
been awarded through FHLB Dallas members to assist more than 47,000
individuals and families with their housing needs.
“The AHP is designed for projects like Star of Hope’s Cornerstone
CommunitySM,” said Greg Hettrick, first vice president and
director of Community Investment at FHLB Dallas. “We applaud Texas
Capital Bank for their commitment to making life easier for the
vulnerable residents of the community.”
