DALLAS, Feb. 4, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Marcus Hiles, Texas property developer and investor, has always shown profound commitment to supporting less fortunate individuals and building a better life for them and their families. Coming from humble beginnings himself, Hiles has over the past two decades contributed a sum of more than $600,000 to programs for disadvantaged women.
"Within every age group, Texas women have a higher poverty rate than their male counterparts," noted Hiles. Data indicates that, while women are heads of household in only 20 percent of Texas homes, 51 percent of poverty-stricken families are led by women. "The three poorest metropolitan areas in the U.S. are located in Texas," he stated. Marcus Hiles understands the broader implications for society of women who don't have the means to support their families. They are more likely to have babies with low birth weights, which increases the likelihood of developmental disabilities. Children born into poverty aren't as well educated as their more well-to-do peers, and are less likely to have steady employment in their adulthood.
According to Hiles, Texas women who face economic challenges need a hand up, not a handout. Because women make up half of the U.S. workforce, Hiles believes it is critical to leverage resources in order to maximize earning potential. His philanthropic donations to career service centers support women in exploring nontraditional jobs that typically offer higher pay and better benefits. To lay the groundwork for success for future generations of young women, Marcus Hiles has donated 200 new DELL computers and monitors for students in urban Texas areas. The real estate developer's commitment to helping women and children is unwavering.
Marcus Hiles, Dallas property entrepreneur, has spent over two decades developing real estate communities that epitomize his vision of luxury living. Today, his companies manage over 15,000 Texas upscale residential townhomes and apartments that include affordable world-class amenities and a focus on a healthy lifestyle with ecological public spaces, top school districts, and recreational locations at the core of their design.
