What a year it has been for West Street Recovery. We started with bikes and boats and now have five staff members who rebuild homes, help residents navigate a complex and incredibly difficult recovery, connect families to large rebuild aid groups , and advocate for policies that promote an equitable recovery and create lasting benefit for people of Houston. Our advocacy has gotten us invited to the Texas State Senate to testify on the FEMA Preps program, sent families to DC to testify, and brought the BBC, PBS, and 60 Minutes to Northeast Houston.
Please join us to celebrate our first birthday as an organization with a lovely evening at Finca Tres Robles in 2nd Ward. The night will include a farm tour, dinner including local meat, produce and locally brewed beverages, and stories from the West Street team and some of the people we have worked with. It’s has been an honor to grow in relationships with families in Northeast Houston, grassroots groups, and all of the people and organizations who have supported us along the way. Come out and meet our staff and members, hear what we have been up to and donate to keep this work going!
