Giveback Homes Members in Houston Help Low-Income Senior Repair her Home of 42 Years

Giveback Homes Members in the Houston area will come together on June 8th, 2019 to help repair Ms. Cabral’s home, in partnership with Rebuilding Together Houston. Rebuilding Together is an organization that improves the safety and health of individuals and families by providing critical home repair and renovation services. Ms. Cabral’s home suffered extensive damage from Hurricane Harvey, and Rebuilding Together Houston has stepped in to help and has contractors working to repair the roof, electrical, plumbing and flooring at no cost to Ms. Cabral.

Ms. Cabral is a widow and lives alone. Her son Carlos helps her, and stops by frequently to take care of things. Ms. Cabral has spent the last 42 years living in her home, located in the Denver Harbor - Port Houston neighborhood, a neighborhood that was greatly impacted by Hurricane Harvey.

Giveback Homes Members will be working on the exterior of the home, sealing it from further damage from weather, decay and pests. They'll also complete any remaining carpentry repairs, if necessary, and paint.


June 8th, 2019


In just one day, Giveback Homes Members installed three ceiling fans, an A/C unit, two new doors, and added fresh paint to the front of Gloria's home. In the coming weeks, more crews will be coming in to finish the repairs for her home.
