ACT Success Stories

  • ACT - Veterans Initiative
  • Brazos Valley Affordable Housing Corporation

    Augustin and Judith have lived in Bryan, Texas their entire lives, but their living situation hasn't always been ideal. As young adults, the couple lived with Augustin's parents and as a result lacked privacy and space. Room got even tighter as their family grew in size.   

    That all changed when they drove by a familiar part of town and noticed new homes under construction. Initially, they didn't think they could afford a home, especially a new one. However, they quickly discovered these homes were being built by Brazos Valley Affordable Housing Corporation on land owned by TSAHC as part of our ACT program. Because of that, the homes would be affordable and available for families like theirs.

    The couple quickly jumped on the opportunity, working with Brazos Valley AHC and TSAHC on necessary paperwork and other steps in the home buying process. They moved into their home in August 2016 and counldn't be happier. They love that the home is new, stylish and that it sits on a full acre. As an added perk, there are horses in a neighboring yard that their kids can pet when given permission. Most importantly, though, they love that they finally have the space they need to raise their children.
