Award winning residential design and build firm, Sea Pointe Construction, held a ribbon-cutting ceremony in celebration of a newly remodeled unit for a family in need at Thomas House Family Shelter. Sea Pointe has donated brand new cabinetry and has partnered with Galleher to provide 825 square feet of GemCore Stone Composite Flooring to renovate the unit in Garden Grove for a more modern design.
“We are honored to have been invited by Sea Pointe Construction to be part of the Thomas House renovation,” comments Jim Harrington, Galleher VP of Marketing. “Projects like these offer an opportunity for us to play a small part in working towards housing solutions.”
This is the second unit Sea Pointe has partnered with Thomas House to renovate during the Covid-19 pandemic. Families who reside at the shelter were previously living in unstable housing, or uninhabitable living conditions. For 35 years, Thomas House has provided over 1,500 families shelter that is rent-free and an opportunity for a fresh start with a goal to maintain permanent housing while monitoring and bettering their personal finances.
“90% of the families find permanent housing and full-time employment, and 90% of the children increase their academic services,” says Shakoya Green, Thomas House Executive Director.
Sea Pointe Construction is honored to be able to use their expertise and services to help Thomas House and these families in a way that will empower them for years to come.
“Each parent must work full-time and save 80 percent of their income, enabling families to build their savings and learn essential life skills. As a result, in an average 12-month stay, families can save a minimum of 2 to 3 months expenses and transition to permanent housing of their own,” says Green.

“This is our second year in a row we are able to partner with Thomas House. We are deeply inspired by their support for the community and their dedication to helping these families get back on their feet,” says Andrew Shore, Sea Pointe Construction President.
A big goal of Thomas House is to renovate its units to provide an updated and safe environment for new families.
“Having Sea Pointe, a part of this project, was terrific. Sea Pointe came in with a great strategy to accomplish the cabinetry promptly and additional resources to support the apartment makeover. The cabinetry and floor look fantastic! We are all so impressed with the outcome. We are excited to welcome a new family and see their reaction to their new home,” says Green.
