MAYOR ANNOUNCES OPENING OF EIGHT MORE NEIGHBORHOOD RESTORATION CENTERS
FOR FLOOD VICTIMS


HOUSTON - Following a successful experiment with providing essential services to Hurricane Harvey flood victims at the grassroots level, Mayor Sylvester Turner today announced the opening of eight Neighborhood Restoration Centers throughout the city starting next week.

“We are taking a neighborhood by neighborhood approach to getting assistance to the many people who need it,” the mayor said.

In November, the city and the BakerRipley non-profit organization opened a pilot version of a Neighborhood Restoration Center at the Kashmere Multi-Service Center at 4802 Lockwood Drive on the northeast side.

The experiment was a success, with 700 Houstonians served there so far with disaster case management and vital services such as temporary housing assistance, legal aid, mental health and wellness care, home repair and rebuilding information and employment help.
 
The City is now joining with BakerRipley and Memorial Assistance Ministries to open eight more centers. With the continuing operations of the Kashmere center, the nine are:
