AUSTIN – FEBRUARY 10, 2020 – HomeAid Austin, in partnership with Brookfield Residential, completed a renovation and landscaping for Roxanne’s House, a non-residential child-friendly facility where abused children come to heal. Roxanne’s House, the Hays-Caldwell Women’s Center’s Child Advocacy Center, provides an array of services for child victims of abuse including forensic interviews, individual and family counseling, Court School, and support and educational groups for children and non-offending family members. The renovation included building an additional 300 sq. ft. of office space, which enables the facility to place three additional staff and expand their mission.
In 2019, Roxanne’s House served 574 victims of child abuse.
Brookfield Residential served as the construction project’s Builder Captain, leveraging the talent and resources of their trade partners who collectively discounted and donated labor and materials toward the Roxanne’s House renovation, saving Roxanne’s House over $40k. The savings represent money Roxanne’s House is able to instead invest in their mission and daily operations. The generous trade partners involved in this collaboration include: AirTron, Builders FirstSource, Buffalo Framing, Calvin’s Electric, Corey Construction, Custom Seamless Gutters, D&R Signs, DID Blinds, High-Tech Flooring & Design, L.A.R.K., Magnum 3 Drywall, Perfect Cuts Inc., Parrish & Co., Rangel Concrete, Rey-Mex Painting, and Vintage Insulation.
