Happy New Year from the Greater Houston Region

Happy New Year

2017 introduced us to new members and new friendships; opportunities to learn & grow and most importantly it brought our communities closer together.

Our Monthly Speaker Series covered topics from Small BusinessHealth Options to Access to Capital to Discrimination in the Workplace. Then, Hurricane Harvey arrived in August 25th delivering over 30 inches of rain, submerging 30% of Harris County and causing over $180B in damage. Many families lost their lives, their homes and livelihoods.

Texas may be the second largest state and Houston only the fourth most populous city in the U.S., but the one thing for certain is the big heart of a Texan.

Like others around the city and state, our very own brothers and sisters from the Rio Grande Valley Region and the Greater Dallas Region rented trucks and came to our rescue delivering food, drinking water and necessary supplies. What a great effort!

I pray that 2018 brings all of us a brighter tomorrow to learn, to grow and to serve. HOUSTON STRONG!
