On January 30, through the Gary Greene Realtor Foundation, Gary
Greene volunteers will spend the day repairing up to nine homes
in Houston’s Independence Heights neighborhood. Led by Rebuilding Together
Houston, volunteers will complete exterior repairs to help keep the elements and
pests out of the homes: replace siding, scrape and paint, and clean up yards.
These are much-needed improvements for residents whose homes make up the
historic Independence Heights community. Our partnership with Rebuilding
Together Houston fits perfectly with Gary Greene’s “Changing Lives, One Home at
a Time” mission, in addition to our longer-term community efforts.
“Gary Greene shares Rebuilding Together’s vision of providing a safe and healthy
home for every person,” said Mark Woodroof, Managing Partner of Gary Greene.
“Our volunteers are dedicated to being part of the organization’s Houstonefforts in
Independence Heights that help homeowners with much needed repairs to keep a
house feeling like a home.”

About Independence Heights
As the first African American municipality in the State of Texas, Independence
Heights holds a special place in history and is proud of its heritage. A few senior
residents still remember when it only had a few dirt lanes with pockets of grass,
except for avenues where the trolley car edged into their community.
With its proximity to downtown, many are worried that if a homeowner falls behind
on maintenance and payments and is forced to move, upscale developers will
move in and build expensive houses that Independence Heights residents cannot
afford, displacing them from their community. Instead, the goal of the
Independence Heights Redevelopment Council is to see that homes are repaired,
maintaining affordable housing, that additional community spaces are built, and
area property taxes kept low so that the families who have lived there for
generations can remain.
