HOUSTON, TX - They are families forced to live in deplorable and unsanitary conditions. Relocation plans are in motion for the residents of the Crestmont Apartments in southeast Houston.

A Houston Civil Court has granted the city the right to appoint someone to oversee the property, and collect rent until a hearing on October 8. That'll determine whether the property should be shut down for good. For now, the community comes to the aide of these poor souls.

The Houston Food Bank brings boxes of food to ease the burden. A-rocket Movers are donating manpower and storage space. All those families with an uncertain future are hoping things will only get better from here.
