They started with bikes and boats and now have five staff members who rebuild homes, help residents navigate a complex and incredibly difficult recovery, connect families to large rebuild aid groups , and advocate for policies that promote an equitable recovery and create lasting benefit for people of Houston. Their advocacy has gotten them invited to the Texas State Senate to testify on the FEMA Preps program, sent families to DC to testify, and brought the BBC, PBS, and 60 Minutes to Northeast Houston.

Please join them to celebrate their first birthday as an organization with a lovely evening at Finca Tres Robles in 2nd Ward.
