Housing organization empowers underserved residents with COVID-19 information
HOUSTON – A building-by-building, door-to-door effort took place Wednesday to help protect some of the most vulnerable Houstonians from COVID-19. Staff from New Hope Housing continued that effort at an apartment complex on Harrisburg Street tucked between EADO and the Second Ward. New Hope has more than 1500 residents in nine properties across Houston. Staffers have been going to every property to arm all their residents with information to stay healthy and receive the vaccine. “To ensure where they know to get the vaccine, that they’re registered and on lists for vaccines, and they can safely get to and from their appointment to receive the vaccine,” Mangrem said.
