HomeAid Houston recognized that with “stay in place” and “social distancing” mandates implemented due to COVID 19, non-profits serving the homeless of Houston and those facing homelessness could find their resources limited, at the least. With this in mind, HomeAid coordinated gifting pre-paid credit cards totaling $2400 to several of their non-profit partners.
“There is no doubt that homeless care providers and other charities are feeling the effects of this health crisis more than we can possibly imagine,” said Carole Brady, executive director of HomeAid Houston. “Many of these agencies are working on the front lines and most of them are dependent on the generosity of the community to sustain their services. The HomeAid Board of Directors was quick to dedicate funds in the form of the pre-paid credit cards to help our non-profit partners be able to purchase what they need and hopefully relieve some of the stress and concerns about meeting these specific needs.”
HomeAid distributed the cards to Fort Bend Women’s Center, Family Promise of Lake Houston, SEARCH House of Tiny Treasures, Boys and Girls Country, Angel Reach, Santa Maria Hostel, Gracewood and The Women’s Center.
Carole Brady concluded, “We are glad to be able to stay connected with each of our agencies through various ways of giving our support,”
HomeAid has been a supporter of numerous non-profits throughout its 17- year history, providing support in a variety of ways including new construction to add more beds and remodeling to enhance and update older facilities so they can continue to provide services for those facing homelessness.
