NancyGolfSince 2011, RTGD has been committed to making a difference in the lives of veterans. Every fall, a vet’s home is rebuilt, modified or repaired to meet the needs of a brave veteran and their family. RTGD’s goal is to provide a veteran with a safe and healthy home and help support our men and women who have served our country.

Recently, Green Bank Business and Private Banking Officer Nancy Cope was tapped to join the board of RTGD. This follows the bank’s efforts in Houston where Community Relations Act Officer David Matthews also serves the local chapter of Rebuilding Together.

Nancy describes it best, “Rebuilding Together allows us to see our labor and resources put to work. It is immediate help—over the course of a weekend, volunteer teams transform seniors’ ageing houses to safe and attractive homes. The value of being able to remain independent and continue to live in one’s home is tremendous for the family and the community. The pay-back on effort and investment is highest among all the community efforts of Green Bank.”

Dallas Bankers Lend a Hand to Church Renovation Project

A dedicated team of Green Bankers and their families participated in Rebuilding Together – Greater Dallas’ (RT-Dallas) national Spring Volunteer Home Repair Program. Our crew helped renovate a 100-year old church as part of Rebuilding Together’s volunteer campaign to assist low-income communities. The church is located in Dallas’ historic Tenth Street District/Oak Cliff area, one of the oldest communities with many original buildings still standing.

The project was successfully lead by Nancy Cope, RT-Dallas Board Member and vice president of business and private banking, and Garth Edwards, executive vice president and private banking manager. Repair highlights include painting and sprucing up the church’s interior.

This was the third repair project that Green Bank has completed in Dallas in the past two years; our Houston office has also completed several home repair projects. Green Bank is keeping pace with giant corporations across Texas and building better communities.

A Partnership Grant From Green Bank and FHLB Dallas Assists in Rehab of a Home for Veterans' Family

VetsHouseDALLAS, Nov. 1, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Representatives from Green Bank and the Federal Home Loan Bank of Dallas today announced an $8,000 Partnership Grant Program (PGP) award to Rebuilding Together Greater Dallas.

Rebuilding Together Greater Dallas will use a portion of the funds toward the rehabilitation of a home for disabled veterans, Jammie and Katina Hinson. The check presentation will take place at the site of the home. The remaining grant funds will be used to hire a part-time assistant to help the organization with client intake.

Magdalena Brodnax, Rebuilding Together Greater Dallas' executive director, said the PGP funds couldn't have come at a better time.

"The partnership grant has just been really amazing for our organization," she said. "It has provided us with the capacity building we need in order to help more families in the city of Dallas."

VeteransThe home being rehabbed was provided by Green Extreme Homes. Mr. Hinson, who served in the Army, has been diagnosed with congestive heart failure and is relying on a left ventricle assist device until he is placed on a transplant list. Mrs. Hinson, an Air Force veteran, is a full-time caregiver to her husband and their two children, and she is also disabled.

"They are a wonderful family and one of Mr. Hinson's wishes is that his family would have a stable home if anything ever happened to him," Ms. Brodnax said. "We have completely redeveloped this distressed home, built him a ramp to allow him access to the home, and completely redesigned the entire house."

Dave Matthews, executive vice president and CRA officer for Green Bank, said he was thrilled to assist with the rehab efforts.

"Green Bank is very pleased to partner with FHLB Dallas to assist RT-Greater Dallas with their excellent work for veterans and other homeowners with pressing housing needs in Dallas' inner city," said Mr. Matthews. "This is a wonderful project for a very deserving veteran family."

FHLB Dallas awarded $225,000 in grants through its PGP this year. The grants provide funding for the operational needs of community-based organizations involved in affordable housing and community development.
