Neci Shepherd sings the National Anthem at the 2018 TAA Conference. Watch what happens when the microphone fails her. After the performance, Neci commented: "The crazy thing is, I never thought about stopping. I just told myself that now I would just have to sing louder. Then, just like on cue, everyone starting singing with me. It was an incredible feeling. It was great to see that same love that I have for my country in so many others."

Partnership with Family Gateway
Madera Residential values groups like Family Gateway that bring community to life for those facing challenges in their lives. These pictures show a group of Goldman Sachs employees who spent their own time and money to furnish an apartment unit for a family at one of our Dallas communities. The family’s daughter has sickle cell anemia which had bankrupted their family and made them homeless. Cathy Packard, the Executive Director for Family Gateway, sent us these pictures along with a thank you from the family saying none of this would have been possible without the willingness of Madera Residential to partner with Family Gateway.
