We are “Better Together.”


by Michelle Trejo

Our hearts are with you, Houston.

Over the past week, we witnessed our community and world come together in extraordinary ways due to Hurricane Harvey. Together, we feel fortunate to know that many of our loved ones are currently safe and dry. Although some are still waiting to assess damages, we continue to keep them and our community in our thoughts and prayers.

Thank you to those who reached out to us in concern. We are forever grateful and hope that your loved ones are doing well, too. As a team, we feel blessed to have the ability to help restore neighborhoods and make a positive difference in our community. Together, we are dedicated to helping Houston rebuild—even for the long haul. While it may take all of us working together for years to come, we know Houston will come back stronger than ever.  Like our 2017 retreat motto, we will work together to be “Better Together.”

Houston’s tremendous outpouring love and interest in volunteering and donating is remarkable. There is truly no place like home. We are blessed to be part of a community that is banding together to help those impacted by Hurricane Harvey.
