National Nurses Week is May 6th through 12th. Take this opportunity to thank a medical professional, especially nurses! Nurses are the front line in our battle against Covid and that is in addition to their regular duties of taking care of the sick and injured.

While other businesses were shutting down or limiting business hours during the pandemic, our Integrated Health Clinic expanded its hours to include Saturdays.

The Integrated Health Services Division provides essential medical, dental, psychiatric, behavioral health, and assessment services to children (ages 0 to 18) involved in the local child welfare system. All services are provided by a team of professionals working together, in one location, to treat the whole child.

Pinwheels are the national symbol for child abuse prevention and also a symbol of childhood joy and innocence. Pinwheels represent hope, joy, and the recognition that all children deserve a safe and healthy childhood. Harris County has the largest child population in the Texas, with over 1.2 million children.

Child Abuse is preventable. The best way to prevent child abuse and neglect is to support families and provide parents with the skills and resources they need.

For over half a century, Harris County Resources for Children and Adults has been providing services to strengthen families and to help thousands of children in our community. Our child abuse prevention programs and services provided in 14 school districts and at our 24-hour Youth Services Center help families in crisis and at-risk youth from getting involved in the CPS or juvenile justice systems.

This month and throughout the year, let’s all do our part to make Harris County a safer place for children to grow up.

Thank you Ginger Harper, Director of the Youth Services Division, for your tireless commitment to thousands of children and families in Harris County. For almost half of century (48.7 years), Ginger has dedicated her life to serving others. Ginger began her career with Harris County after graduating college. She started out as a secretary and probation officer with Harris County Juvenile Probation in 1972 and ends her career as the Director of the Youth Services Division of our organization.

“Ginger is a true servant leader who always put the needs of children and families first,” said Joel Levine, Executive Director of Harris County Resources for Children and Adults. “Ginger is a strong advocate for the agency and the staff. Ginger’s accomplishments were many and her impact will be felt for years to come. Ginger was a true role model in our field and I am proud to call her a mentor to myself and many others.”

The formation of the Youth Services Division, the Prevention CANS, the Parent/Teen Survival Program, the Safety-Net Program and expansion of the CYS Program and transformation of the Kinder Emergency Shelter model live on today and into the future.

Today, Ginger is embarking on her next adventure, that of retirement! We wish you the absolute best in your next chapter and thank you again for your service!

What started out as a mission to provide water by one of the CYS staff, Audrey Shankle, who has clients that live in the Palms of Baytown apartment complex, evolved into providing a case of water for each of the 88 units. This complex has not had any water since the winter storm in February. She was made aware of the situation when she was on a home visit.

Due to reaching out to partnering agencies in the community, such as Love Inc. They provided Audrey a contact at Lowe's Home Improvement. The store donated a pallet of water, which consisted of 60 cases. In order to obtain enough for each unit, Walmart donated 28 cases of water and two $50 gift cards and Target donated other supplies such as detergent and hygiene items, and we obtained hygiene items from BEAR.

Due to the amount of water being donated, a vehicle was needed to pick up the donated items from Lowes. Vita Richardson contacted our contracting school district, Goose Creek CISD and they provided a contact at Precinct 2. Precinct contacted the City of Baytown - Government, which provided a vehicle and several workers. Precinct 2 also contacted a deputy from the Harris County Sheriff's Office to assist in the distribution and provide oversight.

The Baytown Sun was at the complex doing a story about this. The article can be seen here: https://baytownsun.com/local/article_e913022a-7e34-11eb-866c-5ba5b639144d.html.

Today is #nationalsocialworkday and Harris County Resources wants to take this opportunity to thank all of the dedicated social workers in our organization and #socialworkers in general. #socialworkersrock

In an effort to help keep older adults and adults with disabilities safe while residing in boarding homes in Harris County, the Senior Justice Assessment Center (SJAC) created a Boarding Home Task Force. Along with SJAC partners that included the Harris County Attorney's Office, Harris County Sheriff's Office, Harris County District Attorney's Office, Harris County Engineer's Office, Harris County Fire Marshal, Texas Department of Family and Protective Services and Adult Protective Services, Houston Police Department, Office of Intergovernmental Affairs, and Harris County Public Health, the Task Force proposed changes at the January 26th Commissioners Court meeting that allows more oversight of boarding homes in Harris County. Inspections, permits, background checks, and more, will now be implemented to provide safer residential options for this vulnerable population, while they get the care and services they need. The Harris County Sheriff’s Office (HCSO) will oversee and enforce the boarding home regulations in Harris County.
