Building New Foundations - Harvey Response
Hurricane Harvey had a substantial impact on the Houston area, and your generous support made it possible for the Houston-Area AEC industry to respond with help when it was needed most. After the storm, Building New Foundations partnered with Orphan Care Solutions to find at-risk children and their families most in need after the storm. We were able to help foster families get the wet drywall out of their homes within days of the storm. We also were introduced to Kidz Harbor in Liverpool, TX. Kidz Harbor serves both as an RTC and emergency care for children in the Texas foster system. Kidz Harbor is one of few emergency shelters in the state where brother and sister groups can remain together. We were able to mobilize workers to put back drywall, tape, float, and texture in their 5,500SF facility. We also helped them with new cabinets and flooring. Several companies contributed to the effort. Follow us on Facebook for the photos of the work that was done, as well as a running list of the folks that have been helping with the efforts there.
In addition to the work with Orphan Care Solutions, we were able to help Yellowstone Academy and Hope's Path as they recovered from the storm. Come to our Golf Tournament on Monday, Nov. 6th to hear more about these worthy organizations!
