Zoё is Greek for LIFE. Zoё’s Wings is a solution for life’s problems with housing and other family concerns.
The Go East Temple Project – Affordable Housing, Rehabilitation, and other Housing Supportive Service
Go East Temple Project was established when we realized there was a big and urgent need on the East Side of Temple Texas for affordable homes that families can purchase in a low-to-moderate-income bracket. To us, the East side of Temple is that East of Interstate 35 and contains most of District 2 which is where most of our focus is. We assist with affordable home communities by providing access to resources for purchasing homes and assist with funding of such communities to assure that the cost of the home is affordable, but the quality remains the same as other homes built-in Temple.
Health and Safety Repairs
Zoe’s Wings’ Go East Temple Project aids with low- or moderate- income homeowners who need to upgrade their homes to make them attractive, safe, sanitized, accessible, and energy-efficient. The program revitalizes communities and homes with necessary repairs for living in safe and healthy housing. While collaborating with agencies and the community to rehabilitate old housing and other structures including abandoned buildings in residential neighborhoods we provide pleasant places for families to live work and play.

One of the hard things about assisting families with necessary repairs is you never have enough funds to meet the needs of them all. One particular family has touched the heart of Zoё’s Wings and that is La’Shunta Leach. Please hear her story in this short video below and donate in kind, monetary, or volunteer your professional services to get her family back in her home.

November 22, 2019 Interview with Ann Harder, Central Texas Living @25KXXV
Statistics: Phases can be defined by the year or an outpouring of specific funding.
These 5 clients were selected to be part of Phase I of the Rehabilitation Program. The selection criteria were based on the severity of repairs and what can be obtained before the end of the 2019 Fiscal Year. Most of these homes have severe foundation issues, which have caused subsequent issues such as badly leaking roofs, cracked walls, plumbing, and electrical issues. Some of these homes have no running water and no heat. As a result, Zoe’s Wings included these homes to be part of Phase I. Since the Rehabilitation Program is funded by grants and sponsorship, Phase II residents will be part of the 2020 fiscal year. Will provide details once funded by the Phase II recipients.
These 7 clients were selected to be part of 2020 Phase II of the Rehabilitation Program. The selection criteria were based on the severity of repairs and what can be obtained by April. However, with the COVID-19 Pandemic, we have pushed back work completions for the safety of our volunteers, staff, workers as well as our clients.
This 1 client was selected to be part of Phase III of the Rehabilitation Program beginning in October 2020 and going through 2021. Most will be COVID-related repairs but not limited to such repairs. The issues are the same as those homes in Phase I as the work continues.
These clients were selected to be part of Phase IV of the Rehabilitation Program beginning in April 2021 and going through the end of 2021. Most were general home repairs that included, roofs, leveling, water, and sewer issues but were not limited to such repairs.
These 10 clients were selected to be part of Phase V of the Rehabilitation Program beginning in April 2021 and going through the end of 2021. Repairs included, 2 roofs, leveling, floors, bathroom repairs, water, and sewer issues but not limited to such repairs. Two homes were repeat clients.
These 8 clients were selected to be part of Phase VI of the Rehabilitation Program beginning in October 2021 and going through the end of 2021. One home was a repeat client repairs to include, electrical, ramps, and drywall repairs but not limited to such repairs.
Since joining the 211 System we have been looking forward to helping more families in 2022 and were blessed to receive additional funding from the City of Temple to help 11 clients of theirs and 9 clients of our own with donations from local residents and churches. This year included more extensive home repairs from roofs, house leveling, electrical, and entire house plumbing issues.
2023 has been a challenging year but we managed to have 6 city clients. Home repairs included roof reinforcements, water repiping, HVAC repairs, electrical rewiring, and removal of carpet for trip hazard and motorized chairs maneuvering.
