Green Extreme Homes with our awesome partners from Bank of America
and Home Depot Foundation serving our Veterans most in need!

 

The fastest growing homeless veteran population in North Texas is homeless female Veterans, commonly referred to as the “silent homeless”. Three years ago the Dallas VA told us this is their most difficult challenge.

Green Extreme Homes started building the Mullins house a year and half ago to serve female Veterans. Mullins is a 7 bedroom, 4 1/2 bath home with a hydroponics warehouse and chicken coop. Mullins is a zero energy home with solar.

Mullins creates a nurturing environment for these ladies to get back on their feet and move on to independent living.

Depending on the obstacles each Veteran faces will determine the amount of time they are with us at the Mullins home. Average stay will be 6 months. Npower will be providing free technical training to any of the Veterans interested and we have several large corporations committed to hiring our Veterans after completion of courses with a livable wage.

We will also have financial counseling and services to assist these ladies through our community partners.

Hydroponics will provide fruits and vegetables to the home but it also is therapeutic for Veterans to work in the garden.

The ladies will be responsible for taking care of the chickens and spending some time in the hydroponics.

This home if the first of its kind in the Country. It will not only help our Veterans, it will also shine a light on the issues and best practices for helping our homeless integrate back into society.
 

Green Extreme Homes opens the REED HOUSE to serve homeless Female Veterans
Zero Energy, Vertical Farming, and a Chicken Coup, first of this type of housing in the US to serve Veterans in need.

 
"Mullins creates a nurturing environment for these ladies to get back on their feet and move on to independent living."
 
"How did your day start? Ours was with a CHEER!" We were honored to join The Home Depot team and Green Extreme Homes CDC to honor Veteran’s Day and the Home Depot Celebration of Service. The Reed House on Mullins Street is an invaluable resource for Women Veterans in transition.
 
Female veterans are the fastest growing segment of the homeless population. In Lewisville, Texas, Citi teamed up with Green Extreme Homes to build the Reed House on Mullins, a transitional home for female veterans experiencing homelessness. The eco-friendly seven-bedroom, 4.5 bathroom home includes a hydroponics warehouse and chicken coup. It also offers an array of social services such as financial coaching, counseling, and education and job development programs.
