Woodforest National Bank® helps build fourth home for Habitat for Humanity in northwest Harris County

Woodforest National Bank® and Woodforest Charitable Foundation® employees, families, and friends recently held a dedication ceremony for their fourth Habitat for Humanity home built in Northwest Harris County. The new three bedroom, 1358 square feet home located in Spring, TX was proudly built for Charles and his family who moved in to their new home just in time to enjoy the holidays.


Brian Kolenda, Vice President of Woodforest National Bank said “At Woodforest National Bank, giving back to our community, promoting financial literacy, and playing an active role in the community is an essential part of the Woodforest culture. Our dedicated employees had an unwavering commitment to Charles and his family. It was rewarding to witness the pride our employees and Charles took in building Charles’ family home from the ground up. This donation to Habitat aligns perfectly with our fundamental value of community partnership – to help ensure that everyone has a safe, decent, and affordable home.”


As part of the qualification of homeownership at Habitat for Humanity Northwest Harris County, Charles and his family were required to complete 200 hours of “sweat equity” by working to build his home alongside the Woodforest team and other community volunteers before receiving the keys to their home.


“Our main focus it to assist future homeowners achieve the strength, stability, and independence they need to build a better life for themselves and their families. We are grateful for our ongoing relationship with Woodforest National Bank and their continued support” said Soleil Watt, Executive Director for Habitat for Humanity Northwest Harris County.
