Tarantino Honored at 2018 World Homeless Day Awards
October 19, 2018
Tarantino Properties was humbled and honored to be recognized at the 2018 World Homeless Day Awards. The event recognized partners of the Coalition for the Homeless, a nonprofit aimed at ending homelessness in and around Houston.
The Coalition for the Homeless
The Coalition for the Homeless of Houston/Harris County is a private, nonprofit organization whose mission is to provide leadership in the development, advocacy, and coordination of community strategies to prevent and end homelessness. For several years, the Coalition has commemorated World Homeless Day and honored those who are critical to the work being done.
After Hurricane Harvey
After Harvey, The Coalition for the Homeless began reaching out to partners of The Way Home (the local homeless response system) to get up to the minute information on shelters and other services, and provided updates as frequently as possible. Without the help and assistance of these partners and volunteers, many stranded Houstonians would not have received the timely help they needed.
Tarantino Properties: A Harvey Hero
Tarantino Properties was named a “Harvey Hero” for the exemplary work they did to help the community recover. The Coalition for the Homeless noted the incredible commitment that Tarantino showed in those weeks and months after the storm.
Putting Community First
Hurricane Harvey devastated Southeast Texas, with the greater Houston area seeing at least 50 inches of rain. Hundreds of thousands of families were driven from their homes due to massive flooding. Tarantino Properties jumped into action, offering their time and resources to help their fellow Houstonians, and they continue to put the community first.
The Coalition for the Homeless of Houston needs your help. Please visit their site to volunteer, donate, or learn more about the work they do in Houston/Harris County.
