Building New Foundation's Response to Hurricane Harvey
The devastation that Hurricane Harvey created is still being assessed, but the immediate aftermath is being felt by so many in our community. There isn’t a single Houstonian who wasn’t impacted by this storm, either directly or through friends and family members who took on water, wind damage, and many of them having lost everything. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of those who have suffered loss due to this storm.
Building New Foundation’s commitment to help the disadvantaged and at-risk youth of the greater Houston community is needed now more than ever. So many children around our community that live in Residential Treatment Centers or in Foster Care homes have been displaced due to the floodwaters of Hurricane Harvey. The restoration required varies from flooring and sheetrock repairs, to complete gut and remodel efforts. Building New Foundations has come alongside those RTC’s and foster families that are in desperate and immediate need to help them stabilize their situation and rebuild their lives. But we can’t do it without the support of our fellow Houstonians and our fellow countrymen. We need YOUR SUPPORT!
