#projectHouston

This year, AEC Cares joins forces with the Santa Maria Hostel to renovate its women’s substance abuse treatment center.

What is #projectHouston?

Our eighth annual blitz build, “projectHouston,” will take place on October 5, 2018.

Santa Maria has been serving women and children of Houston and the surrounding areas since the mid 1950’s. Their facility is one of Texas largest multi-site residential and outpatient treatment centers serving over 4,640 individuals last year. AEC Cares will bring together nearly 100 industry volunteers to create a warmer and more peaceful space for women in recovery and their families.

The renovation of the Santa Maria’s Jacquelyn House offers a chance to bring positive changes to women in recovery. Santa Maria provides a unique road to recovery from addictions, homelessness, incarceration, abuse and other trauma where a woman can bring her children.
