To achieve anything you have to have a goal. Raising half a million dollars to help aging homeowners will be a challenge. But when you think of the lives that will be impacted, you know the effort will be worthwhile, and Houston, being the exceptionally community-minded city that it is, will respond generously."

"I think the work Rebuilding Together Houston does for the elderly is fantastic! There are a lot of seniors out there who worked hard their entire lives, bought and paid for their own homes, and have difficulty making ends meet on a fixed income. For those who may be widowed, infirmed, or have a hard time keeping up with life's challenges, Rebuilding Together is there to offer help, lend a hand, and restore dignity and hope."
