Would you be willing to keep our recovery efforts in mind as we wind down 2017? Your end of year support will make a real, lasting impact in the lives of those who are still in need. In the Fifth Ward alone, at least 200 families have been identified as in need of recovery assistance. To date, more than 80 families have received assistance for home mucking, cleaning supplies, and home repair. In addition, 30+ families have received varying levels of financial assistance for things like utility bills, temporary housing, rental/mortgage payments, medical needs, mattresses, and gas cards. And we're still working hard! Please donate and / or share and happy new year from our family to yours!

Mayor Turner's 'Post Harvey' site informs residents of recovery fund updates In an effort for transparency, Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner launched this week the Post Harvey website, which will inform residents and other government officials exactly what needs to be done in the wake of the storm. http://www.houstontx.gov/postharvey/
It's been a tough year but we're still #houstonstrong! It takes a team and support like yours though to keep the recovery going. Thank you so much for this end of year donation. Our organization and community appreciate it! Dean Ruck Debbie McNulty
Winter Weather Potential for Start of 2018 - What is the danger? According to the National Weather Service (NWS), a strong cold front will cross the region on New Year’s Eve (Sunday). There is a low probability that this system will bring light rain, and moisture on the ground and roads may freeze. Temperature lows Tuesday and Wednesday morning could fall into the lower 20's and may result in a hard freeze. Remember the 4 P’s for preparing your home for Winter Weather PEOPLE: Keep your family warm and check on any elderly family or neighbors that may need extra blankets, winterizing their homes or a warm place to stay. PETS: Dogs and cats get cold too. Bring them inside at night to keep them healthy and safe. PLANTS: Either cover plants to keep them warm at night or bring them inside so they can flourish. PIPES: Cover exposed pipes to prevent freezing and breaks.

Go Houston Texans! Another holiday season feel good story for a fifth ward family from Texans' Lamar Miller ""Many of the young men in my mentoring program come from families who don't have a lot. While the Christmas time can be joyous for some, for many it can also be a reminder of their struggle and the things they don't have. I'm thankful for Lamar's support and his selfless, willingness to bless others," Glover said."
It’s Wonder Wednesday at Beers Looking At You! Enjoy a few different #8thWonder beers on tap and take home a souvenir glass.
