We believe in community at the Good Luck. When Hurricane Harvey arrived, we learned that we could rise up and do more. Despite the trauma of that event, many said they felt stronger connections with their neighbors and friends by working together to recover from that brutal storm. A strong community looks out for all its members. We believe in the power to make our community safer and kinder by being united in our efforts to care for each other.
Consider how you could participate in and strengthen your community. Remember, we are Houston Strong.
Below are three projects related to homelessness that you could do to strengthen your community:
There are still Hurricane Harvey survivors who are not back in their homes. Recovery Houston is looking for volunteers to help with painting, house prep and sheet rock floating. Experienced workers are welcomed but they will train those without experience.. Help someone return to the comfort of their home!
Donate supplies to the Star of Hope. This organization provides shelter and services to homeless men, women and children. They are in constant need of inexpensive supplies like soap, toilet paper, and washrags.
Help homeless pets by volunteering with Mutts and Meows Rescue. Weekend volunteers are needed to staff PetSmarts’ that facilitate pet adoptions. Be the one that helps some dog or cat find his new family.
