Homes of Georgia Extends a Helping Hand

Touched by shocking scenes of flooding and sad stories of devastation played out nightly on local TV stations, Atlanta home builder Tony Pourhassan of Highlight Homes felt the need to help those whose lives had been touched. “My family and I were lucky – the lake near our home in Newnan rose, but the dam held and only our yard was flooded,” explains Pourhassan. “Sadly, there were many families around town who were not so fortunate. I’ve been building and restoring homes for more than 25 years, and my company recently launched a restorations division – I just kept thinking ‘There has to be something I can do to help.’” Tony shared these thoughts with Highlight Homes Superintendent, Chris Gilliam, and the two men quickly put their heads together.

“We decided that we could offer families in need a couple of hours of our services, completely free of charge,” says Pourhassan. “Because we restore and renovate homes for a living, we can work quickly to help these people put their homes and lives back together. With the aid of several team members, within a short amount of time we can help pull up carpet and pads, remove damaged drywall, and assist in general clean-up. We can also offer our expertise regarding further repair and maintenance, as well as suggest possible steps that can be taken to safeguard against future damage.”

All homeowners in and around the Atlanta area whose homes suffered damage during the recent floods are invited to contact Highlight Homes/Highlight Home Restorations to submit a request for assistance. In the event of an overwhelming response, Highlight Homes cannot guarantee that they will be able to assist everyone who calls. Requests will be fulfilled on a first come-first serve basis. Please submit requests by phone at 404.841.8910 or via e-mail at To learn more about Highlight Homes, visit their website at Tony Pourhassan, Chris Gilliam, and the rest of the Highlight Homes team look forward to your call!
