Governor Abbott Endorses Church-Led Recovery
While touring several rebuild sites in the bay area, Executive Director Tommy Rosson shared time with Governor Gregg Abbott. Leaders on site discussed the Houston Responds model of serving as a "volunteer engine" for the thousands of homeowners yet to refurbish their Harvey-damaged homes. Houston Responds has formed several new regional networks (most recently in Southwest Houston, West Houston and Channelview) to mobilize churches for longterm disaster response. Partners and Volunteers are always needed to drive, house teams, cook, and help with an assortment of construction projects. We are also hiring case managers and other positions. Training is available. Join us!
