Presenting Sponsor






The Carl Umland Award

Reverend Harvey Clemons, Jr. will be honored for his work to revitalize Houston’s Fifth Ward and demonstrating the same passion, tenacity and dedication to Houston Habitat’s mission as its founder, Carl Umland.



The Legacy  Award

Wells Fargo will be honored for their faithful partnership, civic and social responsibility, and longstanding support of Houston Habitat for Humanity.



Luncheon Speaker

Majora Carter, a MacArthur Fellow and Peabody Award-winning broadcaster, has redefined urban revitalization strategy, earning both national and international acclaim.

Carter’s quote “You shouldn’t have to move out of your neighborhood to live in a better one” is part of the permanent collection on the walls of the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History & Culture, and forms the basis of her talent-retention approach to local economic development.

Starting in the South Bronx and expanding to under-resourced communities throughout the United States, she has created and implemented numerous green-infrastructure projects, policies, and job training and placement systems.
