Building our Future
As we roll into the summer months, we’re taking time to assess a really spectacular year for our company. Braselton Homes has been blessed, in the last few months, to be busy racking up a list of top industry and local community organizations that have chosen to recognize us for our work here in South Texas.
As the largest homebuilder south of San Antonio, we are proud of the selection as a national “Housing Giant” from Professional Builder Magazine as well as recognition by Builder Magazine in their “Next 100,” a list of the largest home builders in the nation. But the recognition from national organizations for our commitment to stewardship of the environment is something of which we are even more proud. This year, we have received the Energy Star High Performance Award, the Environments for Living Diamond Award, and locally, we were honored with the the Coastal Bend Bays Foundation Environmental Stewardship Award. Braselton was the first builder to ever be so honored by the Bays Foundation.
Braselton Homes is also proud to top our own Builder’s Association list as one the most awarded home builders in the Corpus Christi area; with Parade of Homes, GreenBuilding, and other recognitions, we have received scores of awards over the last few years.
Industry awards are a great honor, and remind us that our hard work building beautiful homes and neighborhoods for our friends and neighbors to live in is important, but we also take our commitment to our local community very seriously. So, it is doubly an honor for us to receive recognition for our efforts to help those that need help the most through our “Community Builder” programs, which support key charities and ministries throughout the Coastal Bend.
Mentoring our youth and giving them the tools they need to succeed is all part of building the fabric of our community, and our work in this area has been such a rewarding experience. We are proud to sponsor the ECF Community Center’s tutoring and after school programs for inner-city children, as well as to work with Fish for Life, a Christian organization that partners with the local juvenile justice system to mentor at-risk youth and building a better future for our city. We also have made a commitment to the most vulnerable in our community, women and children, who have been abused by the sex trafficking industry. We were honored to sponsor the the New Life Refuge Ministry’s Celebration of Courage and to work with them to build a home for those rescued from this horrible experience . The organization graciously dubbed it the “Braselton Home.” And, we are also happy to be the main sponsor of new housing for women and children at the Salvation Army’s new Center of Hope,which will provide a long term stay for moms with kids.
There’s such an amazing and supportive community here in the Coastal Bend, and we are so pleased to have been a part of it for the past three generations. Together, we’re all building a bright future for our area!
See you in the neighborhood,
