DID YOU KNOW...

Two-thirds of Americans would have difficulty coming up with the money to cover a $1,000 emergency, a signal that despite years after the Great Recession, Americans' finances remain precarious as ever.

 

Summer Splash at Linda Vista with My Brother's Keeper

We had a great event at The Linda Vista Resource Center  Wednesday and Thursday last week. After a slight rain hiccup on the first day, the rest of the event was hot and beautiful. Perfect weather to come together for some fun, information, and connect to the community.  It was a great way to really get in the summer spirit and enjoy friends new and old.

A Day of Family Fun for Falls of Bellaire Resource Center

We had a great community day at the Falls of Bellaire Family Day for The Falls of Bellaire Apartments Resource Center! The event was part of our outreach for CASE (Center for Afterschool, Summer, and Extended learning) from the Harris County Department of Education. The outreach put residents in touch with community resources, vendors, and activities for parents and kids.

Busy day at the Center! The school year may be winding down, but these kids are keeping busy with school work!

Working with the Community for Children

Last Saturday we were out in Alief working with other community leaders and vendors at an Alief Children's Health Fair. There was a great turnout with over a 100 families before all of the bad weather.

 

A Major Spring Cleaning at Falls of Bellaire

Falls of Bellaire Resource Center kicked off our spring cleaning right with a major overhaul of the Computer Lab. It was out with the old and in with the new as Alief Independent School District donated twelve computers.  The computers are part of a program to help community resource centers meet Alief students’ educational activities by donating surplus computers after equipment upgrades. This is a huge advancement from our currently outdated and barely useable computers to actually working computers! 

 

A Great Week Reaching The Community

What did you do last week? We registered over 57 voters!

Doing More with Less Vs Doing More with Nothing

Having a calling is the most wonderful thing in the world, and it is the absolutely worst thing in the world. Knowing you want to encourage people to take control of their lives, to vote, to turn their passion into their project, and to make their home their community even if it is an apartment, is awesome. However, it is the worst, because you are dependent on other people to donate money to give you that chance to follow that call to serve.  Most of the time, you work with businesses who want to help and that is fine and good, until the economy takes a fist to the midsection or another delicate part of the body.  That is what has happened to the oil sector of the economy. That is bad for Houston and the nonprofits that work and live here. And itis bad for Texans Together
