Committed to a brighter future for children, neighbors and communities.

We consider a healthy neighborhood to be one that is safe, clean, and diverse; one in which it makes economic sense for people to invest and one where neighbors manage change successfully.

New Homeowner Spotlight

Homebuyer-Spotlight-Allyson

Allyson moved here 8 years ago and decided at the beginning of 2020 she was ready to officially call Waco home for her and her boys. She decided it was time for her “to take a leap of faith into homeownership” and she decided to enroll in Grassroots’ financial literacy and homebuyer program. She began taking financial literacy classes, going to homebuyer coaching sessions with Darrell, and started the process of picking out house colors and designs.

Then the unexpected happened, the pandemic began and the unusual snow and ice disrupted things more. Everything was put on hold. Allyson shared that “it was discouraging but I never gave up. I kept my faith high and prayed my way through. Mr. Darrell was also there to encourage me to trust the process and not give up.”

We are so grateful to work with determined clients like Allyson who don’t give up on their dreams of becoming homeowners. We are here to support you through the process of buying your home whether it takes a few months, 2 years, or even longer. We want to be there for the moment that you, like Allyson, get to shout, “I’m a homeowner!”

Last Friday was a busy time of celebratory events in East Waco. JH Hines hosted a Muffins for Moms event, where over 100 moms, grandmothers, aunties, sisters, and mother figures attended. Community partners and other volunteers also showed up to support this effort.
At the same time, just across West Waco Drive, was the Groundbreaking Ceremony for the new GW Carver Middle School. Alumni, current students and staff, public officials,Waco ISD, residents and other community members gathered for this historical event. We enjoyed being able to participate and support these exciting moments.
