On May 6, 2019, Northwest Assistance Ministries (NAM) announced it will receive an $84,700 grant from the Rebuild Texas Fund to finance an emergency generator. This grant will allow NAM to support its emergency services during a power outage so they can continue to serve its neighbors and be better prepared for the future.
The Rebuild Texas Fund was launched just days after Hurricane Harvey devastated Texas communities. A collaborative project of the Michael & Susan Dell Foundation and the OneStar Foundation, the initiative is dedicated to the economic recovery of hard-hit Texas communities. Funded organizations such as NAM, play a critical role as rebuilding continues in the community.
“We are grateful for the Rebuild Texas Fund’s dedication and passion for rebuilding and revitalizing communities, including our own Northwest Houston area impacted by Hurricane Harvey,” said Les Cave, CEO/President of Northwest Assistance Ministries. “Through this generous grant, we will be able to fund an essential emergency generator to be able to maintain emergency services when the power goes out,
as well as preserve food and medicines that need to be refrigerated.”
“We are excited to give Northwest Assistance Ministries this grant to continue our collective mission of helping communities rebuild after Hurricane Harvey,” said Neeraj Aggarwal, Program Director of Rebuild Texas Fund. “We know that rebuilding requires strong, creative partners from business, government, non-profit and philanthropy working together, and are excited to see how NAM’s project positively impacts the community.”
The Rebuild Texas Fund supports organizations across all five regions impacted by Hurricane Harvey and that provide services in six focus areas: community and economic development; health; housing; education and childcare; transportation and workforce; and capital for rebuilding small businesses.
