Houston to open 8 new Neighborhood Restoration Centers for Harvey flood victims

HOUSTON — The city of Houston announced Thursday it will be opening eight new Neighborhood Restoration Centers in the upcoming week. The centers come following a successful experiment with providing essential services to Hurricane Harvey flood victims at the grassroots level, city officials said.

“We are taking a neighborhood by neighborhood approach to getting assistance to the many people who need it,” Mayor Sylvester Turner 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 Dr. 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:
