FHLB of Dallas - July 7, 2009 Press Release [cached]

Echo Weir, Program Administrator of the Center for Housing Resources, said that the East Texas Area Agency on Aging and FHLB Dallas have been continuous partners of the Center for Housing Resources for many years. She said the contributions and support from both organizations have allowed them to better assist those in need.

"The people we assist are elderly and/or disabled, and because they do not have the means to repair or renovate their home, many are forced into assisted or alternative living facilities," said Ms. Weir. "We have assisted people that did not have plumbing or running water, had structural problems in the walls and under the roof, and complete lack of flooring. The grant funds are used to make these repairs, as well as modifications to improve the homeowners' lifestyle. The people we assist are good people, and it is an absolute pleasure working with them."
The funding was made available through Guaranty Bank which, ironically, Ms. Weir said she had partnered with 10 years ago to receive the first AHP grant for the Center for Housing.
Ms. Weir said representatives of the Center for Housing Resources visit senior community centers in areas that are not well-served to conduct seminars and question-and-answer sessions to raise awareness about their program. She also said they contact local TV and radio stations to publicize the event.

Sharp simply showed up at the Family Resource Center in Gun Barrel City last Friday and began talking with Echo Weir, who is the Program Administrator for the Center for Housing Resources in Dallas.

Echo has been writing such grants for the last 13 years, and she's says she hasn't been turned down for one yet.
With this year's money, Echo and her organization will make repairs to 72 homes in Henderson and Anderson counties.
"She needs a roof," said Weir, "and she needs new floors because of the leaky roofs.This is a very common problem we're seeing."
She's also seen a lot worse during the last 13 years.
"On one of her missions, she said she found a woman who has been bathing out of a wash tub for the last 50 years.
"We put in a bathtub for her," she said.
On another occasion, they discovered a woman who had no plumbing for 35 years.
It's important to get the word out to these people," she said.
In addition to getting out the news through newspapers, Weir is trying to get out the word through local nutrition centers and by word-of-mouth.
Echo has also written a grant for $350,000 which will be used to help disabled citizens around Gun Barrel City, Log Cabin, Malakoff, Tool, Trinidad, Seven Points and Mabank.
"I've found so many disabled people in this county," she said.
The main difference in that grant, she said, is that a person doesn't have to be 60 to qualify.
Gail Sharp signs the papers with instruction from Echo Weir, an administrator for the Center for Housing Resources in Dallas.
